This Thanksgiving holiday has ended with a victory for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" at North American Box Office. The movie earns $49.1 million during the latest three days' ticket sales, bringing its domestic gross total to $219 million.

Next, there is DreamWorks' animation "Megamind" which drops one place from second to third with an additional $12.6 million. "Burlesque", despite supported by the performances from Christina Aguilera and Cher, lands on number four in its first week with $11.9 million.
