Talk about working some serious box office magic!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 brought in a whopping $475.6 million worldwide in its opening weekend, making it the best debut of all time. The final film in the Potter franchise also holds the new record for highest domestic opening with $168.6 million, knocking 2008's The Dark Knight ($158 million) to the number two spot.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the previous global opening weekend record holder was Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which brought in $394 million worldwide in its first weekend in theaters. We're def gonna miss Harry, Hermione and Ron, but we're glad they went out with a bang!
Did you see the final Potter film this weekend? Thoughts?
