Los Angeles (AP) -- Some box office analysts already are predicting "Harry Potter's" demise.

They're saying because everyone who wanted to see "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" probably did over the weekend, the movie will sink like a sorcerer's stone next weekend. Watch the trailer

It brought in an amazing $169.2 million over the weekend. An analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com says "conventional wisdom is the bigger they open, the harder they fall.

There's no way they can sustain it." But the studio predicts this final Harry Potter movie easily will top $1 billion worldwide, joining only a handful of films that have reached that level.

When you add in international ticket sales, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" already is closing in on $500 million.
