Harry Potter makes box-office magic with record weekend

The World News: The goblins at Gringotts bank are set for a busy week: the newest Harry Potter film has shattered the British box office record for an opening weekend, taking £18.3m in its first three days.

The figure eclipses the £15.3m raked in by the most current James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, in 2008. Figures at large this mealtime verify that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 has broken minutes for the best Friday, the greatest Saturday and the best for a single day.

The latter two records are at here held by the fourth film in the series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which took £5.7m on a Saturday in 2005. Deathly Hallows also top the US box office at the weekend, debuting with an anticipated $125m.
