It’s not released until November 19, but already Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has become a massive box office hit, with audiences around the world flocking to advance screenings in their thousands.
The long-awaited penultimate Harry Potter film has been causing an almighty buzz for months, with Harry, Ron and Hermione back and ready for action in the spine-chilling wizarding flick.
Tickets for their November release date have been flying off the shelves, with excited fans fighting to get their hands on tickets for the opening night.
But some lucky super fans went one step further, attending a series of special advance screenings.
Thousands bought tickets for the 500 exclusive events, which sold out in minutes, prompting industry insiders to tip it as the hottest selling film of the year so far.
'We've seen more sold out showtimes for this film than we've seen for any other film this year, at the same point in the sales cycle,’ Chief Operating Officer Rick Butler told WENN.
