Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution at Warner Bros. and Veronika Kwan-Rubinek, President of International Distribution at Warner Bros. announced today that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince grossed $58.18 million in the US and $45.85 million internationally on its first full day of release (July 15), giving it a one-day worldwide box office gross of a little more than $104 million.

According to Warner Bros., these figures mean that the film shattered not one but two records on its opening day. First, the film broke the record for a midnight opening with $22.2 million; and second, it eclipsed the worldwide opening day box office record. From the press release:

Fellman said, “We are so happy to share ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ with the fans and thrilled that they turned out in record numbers to see it.”

Kwan-Rubinek said, “With many countries yet to open, these already outstanding box office numbers are another testament to the universal appeal of J.K. Rowling’s stories and the remarkable work of everyone behind the Harry Potter films.”
