Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 has destroyed the box office making records which should come as no surprise to anyone considering the emotional response from fans to this last film in the world famous franchise. At its midnight release The Deathly Hallows brought in over $43million with thousands of theatres selling out according to Fandango. In generating this astounding amount of money it also answered the question as to whether wizards or vampires rule the teen verse. Previously Twilight Saga: Eclipse held the midnight box office record with $30million which has been soundly toppled by Harry Potter and his gang of wizardly friends.
The Deathly Hallows Part 2 also delivered box office magic on Friday bringing in the largest single day box office in history with $92.1million trumping previous record holder Twilight New Moon.
Both those records are impressive but it does not end there. Harry Potter not only handed it to the tween vampires in Twilight it also took down one of the greatest comic book movies of all time The Dark Knight. As of today according to Reuters the film has brought in $168million dollars its opening weekend making it the biggest opening weekend for Warner Brothers in North America and trumping The Dark Knights $158million opening box office weekend.
There is no question in my mind that Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 will continue to break box office records as both fans and critics are united in their passion and love for the final film in the franchise pegging it in many cases as the best in the franchise and a deserving final film.
