Pinoy Potterheads also showed their love for the British Boy Wizard by watching the finale. Last Saturday, 10,000 Pinoys watched the film in SM Mega Mall Cinemas (SM Mega Mall tweet).
Now, Warner Bros. Pictures (Philippines) released the official gross of the film for its first 4 days. This is a history, we can beat the number one film in Philippines - 'SpiderMan 3'. Here is the official statement.
MANILA, July 18, 2011 – Till the end, Filipino fans of “Harry Potter” showered the boy wizard with affection, sending him off in a grand, sensational way.
With an astounding nationwide box office total of P155 million in 4 days, Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” shattered multiple box office records in a history-making opening weekend (July 14 to 17). The announcement was made today by Warner Bros. (F.E.), Inc.
Grossing P117.06-M alone in Metro Manila, the penultimate “Harry Potter” film obliterated the following records: biggest opening weekend all-time for a Warner Bros. title (breaking past “Superman Returns”), best opening weekend ever in the “Harry Potter” franchise (surpassing “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”) and highest opening weekend of the year for a Warner title (clobbering “Green Lantern”).
Its IMAX receipts of P14.287-M also broke the all-time biggest IMAX opening weekend record (beating “Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon” at P12.15-M).
The film’s outstanding performance in the Philippines mirrored its phenomenal US bow. “Deathly Hallows – Part 2” earned a stunning $168.5 million at the American box office, which not only is the biggest Harry Potter opening weekend but also broke the industry’s opening weekend record, including holiday weekends. Among the other records broken were single-day box office (Friday at $92.1 million), Friday box office, and opening day box office.
With the film opening day-and-date in 59 territories, the international box office take was a staggering $307 million, making it the biggest international weekend of all time. Led by record-breaking grosses in the UK ($36.6 million) and Australia ($26.7 million), all markets have performed exceedingly well, including Germany ($25.7 million), France ($23.9 million) and Japan ($21.5 million).
