The film earned over eighty-eight million dollars in the U.S. on its opening weekend, which at the time placed it third in the list of all-time biggest openings, behind Spider-Man (2002) and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone (2001).
I can't let you out, Hedwig! I'm not allowed to use magic outside of school. Besides, if Uncle Vernon...
Uncle Vernon: Harry Potter!
Harry: Now you've done it.
(at around 20 mins) The scene in Flourish & Blotts, where Hermione's parents are seen inside Diagon Alley, has been called a plot hole. Normally, Muggles cannot enter, or see, Diagon Alley. However, the Grangers are accompanied by Hermione, who, as a witch, would know how to enter through the Leaky Cauldron (and be able to see the pub). In the book, the Grangers comment to Mr. Weasley about having visited Gringotts to exchange their Muggle money for Wizarding money. If this is the case, they obviously aren't the first Muggles to enter Diagon Alley (indeed there have been numerous children who must have been taken there by their parents alongside a school staff member to buy their first year equipment for Hogwarts).
The film begins with some dark clouds, one of them moves aside to reveal the Warner Bros logo which zooms in then turns away out of the picture, some more clouds then move aside to reveal the film title shining a bit in the sunset.
In Disney Channel's showing, after the camera pans away from the students applauding Hagrid's return in the Great Hall, the scene which was at the very end of the credits in the theatrical version is shown. In a shot of the front of a wizarding bookstore, a book called "Who Am I?" by Professor Gilderoy Lockhart is on display. The author's picture on the cover is of Lockhart struggling confusedly in a straitjacket, and humming the movie's theme music.

Tom Hardy has been on a remarkable run since Inception, so it's no surprise he's been offered a bunch of big roles in the past decade. But which blockbusters did he turn down?
