Wizardly "Harry Potter" bewitched the US box office last weekend, notching up 88.3 million dollars in ticket sales and scoring the third biggest movie opening in history.
"Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" also wowed audiences in seven other markets across the world, taking in an additional 59.5 million dollars and bringing the film's global weekend total to a huge 147.8 million.
