Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 roped in an estimated $330.1 million worldwide, including $125.1 million in North America, in its pre-Thanksgiving weekend box office debut, and became the sixth biggest grossing weekend opener.
In addition, the film's weekend debut earnings secured it as a franchise high, beating out Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which drew in $102.7 million in 2005.
Earlier this month, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Hot Topic launched dedicated in-store boutiques with exclusive Deathly Hallows-inspired merchandise. Products, available now, include juniors', young men's and women's apparel (i.e. Gryffindor and Slytherin polo-and-tie combination tees), bags, throws, jewelry, key chains, stationery and posters.
