  Harry breaks more records
Updated 09 November 2001, 17.49
Daniel Radcliffe give the film thumbs up
The new Harry Potter movie has doubled its advance ticket sales in just one week, setting new box-office records.

Sales have now topped 2 million as fans book ahead in their hundreds of thousands for the most eagerly awaited film of the year.

The Odeon Cinema in London
Britain's biggest cinema operator, Odeon, say they've sold over 400,000 tickets - the most advance bookings they have ever received.

Beaten own record

That's twice the number sold since last week which was already a record.

The film, which stars 12-year-old Daniel Radcliffe, has been tipped to be one of the biggest films of all time.

Fans and celebrities lucky enough to attend last Sunday's star-studded premiere in Leicester Square gave the movie a thumbs up.

There are preview screenings at some cinemas this weekend and the film goes on general release next Friday.
