Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows grossing $125.1 million this weekend

42445.jpeg"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 1" posted the franchise's best opening ever by grossing $125.1 million this weekend, according to studio estimates. That figure smashes the wizarding series' prior opening-weekend record of $102.7 million, held by 2005's "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."

The new Potter flick also registered the sixth-largest opening weekend of all time, landing just behind this year's "Iron Man 2," which debuted to $128.1 million in May, CNN reports.

Josh Berger, president of Warner Bros Entertainment UK, said: "These remarkable box office numbers are a testament to the talents of the film-makers, cast and to the vision of creator JK Rowling," Mirror.co.uk informs.
