The magic of Harry Potter continues to draw in the crowds at the box office – THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 1 has conjured up a spellbinding five-day gross of $76.3 million to land the fourth best Thanksgiving weekend in history.

The latest installment in the boy wizard franchise, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, hauled in $50.3 million from Friday to Sunday, in addition to the $26 million it raised last Wednesday and Thursday.

The bumper holiday figures take the movie's 10-day tally to $220.4 million setting another record as the 10th best 10-day gross ever.

New animated Disney musical Tangled debuts at number two on the box office chart, scoring $49.1 million over the weekend, while Megamind trails in third place with $12.9 million.

Three other new entries failed to entice audiences – Christina Aguilera and Cher's movie musical Burlesque debuts at four with $11.8 million, while Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway's Love & Other Drugs opens at six ($9.9 million), and Dwayne ';The Rock' Johnson's Faster takes seventh place ($8.7 million).
