The sixth "Harry Potter" movie charmed North American moviegoers, selling an estimated 160 million dollars (USD) worth of tickets during its first five days of release.
The cartoon comedy, "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" meanwhile held steady at No. 2 with nearly 18 million, bringing its total to 152 million.

Movies generally hope for a 50 percent fall in their second weekend. The 10-day haul for Sacha Baron Cohen's risque look at gay culture stands at a modest 49.6 million.
