Harry Potter has cast his biggest opening-weekend spell yet, thanks largely to fans who rushed to midnight screenings late Thursday.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" sold $125.2 million of tickets this weekend. That's 23% higher than the previous biggest first weekend for a "Potter" film. Potter fans are both excited and sad since "Deathly Hallows, part 1" marks the beginning of the end for the Harry Potter story and movies - the second and last part ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2") will be released next July. "It will be quite strange, and Iíll be devastated. I feel very very sad because Harry Potter has been an important part of my life," said Daniel Radcliffe. "Since we started filming 10 years ago, I have worn out several pairs of glasses," he adds.
Rupert Grint (Ron) said he chose to "steal" the number on the house where Harry Potter lived, as his trophy of the Harry Potter movie saga...

This contest is fueled by the following news: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I is the seventh film and the screen adaptation of the book saga about Harry Potter.

According to the producer of the Harry Potter series, David Heyman, J.K.Rowling was not against the idea of releasing the movies in two parts.

Cash from the box office from the film "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I", in the first weekend of its international screening constituted 330 million dollars (241.5 euros) of which, 125 million dollars was made in North America and 205 million dollars from the remaining countries.
The world premiere of the film "Harry Potter and the Death Hallows: Part I" was released on November 18, 2010 and the distributor of film is "Karo Premiere". The film will be screened not in 3D but only in 2D format.
First part begins with Harry, Ron and Hermione leaving on a high-risk journey, since they have to complete an important mission: find and destroy the secret sources of immortality and power of Lord Voldemort. Now, the three friends should act without the guidance of instructors and protection from Professor Albus Dumbledore and as never before, they have to count only each other. But, the powers of the dark try to separate the children and destroy their bonding friendship.
In the meantime, the world of wizards turns into a dangerous place for all enemies of Lord Voldemort. The war, which they were afraid of for so long has begun and now the Death Eaters supervise the Ministry of magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing, intimidating and arresting all those who tries to resist them. But, the one "prey", who is most valuable for Lord Voldemort and constantly escapes from under the nose, is Harry Potter. He has turned into most desired target and the most wanted person, after all, Death Eaters follow him everywhere so as to bring him alive to Lord Voldemort.
Harry's only hope is to find horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. As he unwinds a ball of riddles and secrets, he very often faces the old, almost forgotten fairy tale - legend about Death Hallows. If this legend turns out to be true, it can give Voldemort the highest supremacy, for which he is aspiring.
Harry does not guess that his future has been predetermined way back in the past on that tragic day, when he became the "boy who survived". And now, as an adult, Harry is coming closer to fulfilling the task, for which he has prepared for from that same day, when he stepped over the boundary of howgarts for his last deciding battle with Voldemart.
The part comes to an end at Malfoy Manor, where Dobby is killed, when Bellatrix throws a dagger, which disappears along with Harry, Ron, Hermione & Dobby, transgressing in a cottage "Cockleshell". One of the most emotional scenes of the film is the death scene of Dobby in the arms of Harry Potter. Harry makes a grave to bury the Elf. Harry, Ron and Hermione bury Dobby in the grave. In the last scene of the film in Hogwarts, on a small island on the banks of the lake, Voldemart opens the tomb of Dumbledore, takes away the Elder Wand and lets out lightning in the sky.
