The boy wizard couldn’t beat the teen vampires.  “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1” sold $24 million in tickets in its debut late Thursday night with shows that started at or soon after midnight, according to an estimate from Warner Bros. That’s $1.8 million more than the last movie in the series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” brought in from midnight shows when it debuted in June 2009. It’s well short, however, of the record set in July by “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse“…

THERE’S MORE, READ THE REST
