"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.

It appears it is shattering the Dark Knight’s opening weekend record also. And I still haven’t even seen it. :(

Why does it still say “DH1 is Here!” in the upper left hand corner of the site? DH2 is here now! lol

Just came back from seeing it the 2nd time. Plan again at least 5xs more. (That’s my average for HP movies). Anyway, I loved it and thought it was brilliant.

This was the best Harry Potter movie! And Snape’s death scene perfect!
