    Breaking Dawn Tickets Going Fast, So Why Isn't Harry Potter Worried?

    THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN-PART 1, ROBERT PATTINSON, KRISTEN STEWART Andrew Cooper/ Summit Entertainment

    Another year, another red-hot-selling Twilight movie.

    Another chance to lose out to Harry Potter.

    Um, what?

    With more than one week to go until opening night, Breaking Dawn has already sold out more than 2,300 screenings across the country via Fandango and MovieTickets.com, the two leading advance-ticket sellers reported Wednesday.

    The early box-office forecast for the vampire saga's fourth installment is just as impressive. BoxOffice.com editor Phil Contrino said, as of now, his tracking site was calling for a $155 million opening weekend.

    How big is $155 million? It's ginormous—enough to make Breaking Dawn the top-opening Twilight movie of all, and the third-biggest-opening Hollywood movie of all time.

    But, no, it would not be enough to take the top spot from Harry Potter, who took it from Batman over the summer when Deathly Hallows Part 2 dumped The Dark Knight.

    HP8 stole a number of box-office records from the Twilight franchise, too, including biggest midnight opening, biggest opening day and biggest single day.

    Deathly Hallows Part 2 was its series' finale; Breaking Dawn isn't. So, if the Cullen clan doesn't get its records next weekend, it'll have one more shot next fall when Breaking Dawn Part 2 opens. 

    And presumably becomes the latest red-hot-selling Twilight movie.
