Photo Courtesy - Jaap Buitendijk/Warner Bros(LOS ANGELES) -- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1, earned an estimated $125.1 million domestically on its first weekend, putting the new film at the top of the heap in the franchise for opening weekend revenue, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

Playing on a whopping 4,125 screens across the country, Deathly Hollows topped the previous franchise leader, 2005's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which took in $102.7 million in its first weekend, to become the sixth-biggest opening weekend of all time.

The film does fall slightly short of the record for highest opening weekend for 2010, a crown which goes to this summer's Iron Man 2. The blockbuster sequel took in a staggering $128.1 million its first weekend back in May.

DreamWorks' animated Megamind finished second this weekend with $109 million. In third was the action thriller Unstoppable, followed by Due Date, and the debut of The Next Three Days.
