Harry Potter worked his magic on North American movie fans this weekend with the third film in the series, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," bringing in an estimated $92.6 million, according to estimates.  

The third time was really the charm as this film outdid the first two films in the series. The series debut, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," made an impressive $88.4 million debut in November 2001 and the second film, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," continued the box office magic with $88.4 million opening weekend in 2002. 

Only one other film has had a higher three-day opening, “Spider-Man” ($114.8 mil).  "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" replaces "The Matrix Reloaded" ($91.8 mil) for second place honors.  

In the meantime, Shrek is still bringing them in. While it now holds the No. 2 box office spot after two weeks on top, “Shrek 2”, brought in another impressive $37 million.  The eco-disaster film “The Day After Tomorrow” landed in third place by making an addition $28.1 million this past weekend.
