Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince earned a record-breaking $104 million worldwide during its first day in theaters on Wednesday, making it the second-biggest Wednesday opening domestically, according to Reuters.
The film grossed $58.18 million in North America and $45.85 million overseas in just its first day in theaters.
Quite simply, we owe this record-breaking opening to the remarkable fans who have stood by us and who stood in line to be among the first to see 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,'" Warner Bros President and Chief Operating Officer Alan Horn said in a statement.
The first five films in the franchise, one of the most lucrative in Hollywood history, have so far taken in about $4.5 billion collectively at the global box office.
