"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.

Did they ever build ravenclaw common room set. If so will we see if on the dvd release under deleted scenes? Also was it included in the video game?
