Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince made many people happy yesterday, especially Warner Brothers.  The blockbuster film made a whopping $58.4 million in its opening day, including its record-breaking $22 million from midnight shows alone.  That makes it the second-best Wednesday ever.  The best Wednesday ever? That belongs to those giant robots from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

The biggest one-day take for a film still belongs to The Dark Knight, with $67.2 million.

The last Potter film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, made $44 million on its first day (also a Wednesday) so this movie is sure to pass that in box office receipts.  We’ll see if it can break any weekend records set by Transformers only last month.
