Potter Breaks UK Box Office Record


Harry Potter has worked his magic on cinema sales by smashing box office records.

The Prisoner of Azkaban is the first film to take more than 5m on a single day in the UK.

The film, the third in the boy wizard series, took a staggering 5.03m, according to the Screen International website.

The movie, which sees Harry as a teenager enter his junior year at Hogwarts, opened in 535 locations in the UK on bank holiday Monday.

Teenage angst runs through the plot as convicted murderer Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) escapes the wizards' prison and seems to be coming after Harry.

The last Potter film, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, made 2.18m on its first day of release, eventually grossing 55m at the UK box office.

The UK release of The Prisoner of Azkaban was brought forward to coincide with a bank holiday and the first day of the school half-term holidays.
