Despite the onslaught of several new challengers arriving across the long Thanksgiving weekend in the US, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 rose triumphant once again, topping the box office with $50.3 million, which means its total US gross is now in the region of $220 million after two weeks.
