LOS ANGELES (AP) — A long school break has been kind to ``Harry Potter.'

After a two-year gap since the last film, ``Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' opened with a whopping $58.2 million domestically in its first day, distributor Warner Bros. said Thursday.

``Half-Blood Prince' also conjured up $45.8 million in 33 other countries where it opened Wednesday, among them Great Britain, France, Germany, Australia and Japan. That gave the film a worldwide total of $104 million.

Domestically, the movie had the best single-day haul yet for the franchise and the fourth-best daily gross ever, behind last year's ``The Dark Knight' at $67.2 million, this summer's ``Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' at $62 million and 2007's ``Spider-Man 3' at $59.8 million.

``Half-Blood Prince' receipts include a record $22.2 million from midnight screenings alone, surpassing the previous high of $18.5 million for ``The Dark Knight.'

The sixth installment in the ``Harry Potter' series had the second-highest debut ever for a movie opening on Wednesday. It trailed only the ``Transformers' sequel opening last month.
