Harry Potter Surpasses The Dark Knight Record

As if you don't know by now, The Dark Knight (which made $158.4 million) can no longer claim to have the highest opening weekend ever, anymore... This is all thanks to the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Yes, the boy wizard's last film, made a total of $168.5 million... Kaching! That's not the only record it set, because it also beat Twilight: New Moon for the biggest Friday on record with $92.1 million. Foreign figures have not yet been released, but analysts expect it to claim another record. Despite all this hooplah... with increased ticket sales and 3D movie prices, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 has actually sold less tickets than The Dark Knight... go figure.
