"Deathly Hallows: Part 2" made $92.1 million on Friday, breaking the record for single day box office gross in the US, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The last holder of this record was "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," which earned $72.7 million on its first day:

Overseas, the pic earned another $75 million on Friday for a three-day international total of $157.5 million, bringing its worldwide cume to a record-breaking $249.6 million.

By all accounts, Deathly Hallows 2 is on track to score the biggest worldwide opening of all time, beating the $394 million earned by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in its debut. Domestically, it's expected to eclipse the record-breaking $158.4 million grossed by Warners' The Dark Knight in its opening weekend.

Not at all surprised! Already seen it twice! As I’m sure many others have done as well! Glad to have contributed to breaking the record! I am going into mourning however. Can’t believe it’s finished! I’m 25 years old and I guess I finally have to grow up…..Nah! Harry Potter Forever!!!!
