    Harry Potter's Huge $58.2 Million Opening

    Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, Rupert Grint Warner Bros.

    Half-Blood Prince is the new king of the Harry Potter movies.

    The franchise's sixth installment, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, grossed an estimated $58.2 million yesterday, the box-office tracking firm Exhibitor Relations reported.

    The take is the biggest-ever opening day, by far, for the no-slouch Harry Potter series. Overall, the gross is Hollywood's fourth-highest single-day score ever, running behind only The Dark Knight, this summer's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Spider-Man 3.

    Half-Blood Prince started off Wednesday with a Dark Knight-besting $22.2 million from midnight screenings.
