Potter breaks records
In its first three days Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire made almost £15 million, beating Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith that made the same amount in four days.
Around the world the teenage wizard's fourth tale, starring Ralph Fiennes, Gary Oldman and Miranda Richardson, made almost $190 million, according to Variety.
The success of the film has also helped the main star 16-year-old Daniel Radcliffe become Britain's richest teenager, with a fortune of over £10 million.
He said: "I don't actually know how much I am worth at this point. It's not something that affects the way I think about things."
It is also rumoured that the teen will earn £8 million for the fifth film Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix.
Directorial duties on the film were taken by Mike Newel, who also made Four Weddings And A Funeral, Donnie Brasco and Mona Lisa Smile, after Chris Colombus (Nine Months, Bicentennial Man) made the first two and Alfonso Cuaron (Great Expectations, Y Tu Mama Tambien) directed Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban.
