It's been out only a few hours and already “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” is breaking records.
Warner Bros. Pictures announced that the final film in the "Potter" franchise "smashed the domestic box office record for a midnight opening, taking in a phenomenal $43.5 million."
Having already raked in $25 million domestically before even opening, the movie also broke the midnight opening record for IMAX theaters, grossing $2 million on a record number of IMAX screens.
"What an incredible beginning for the movie that ends it all," said Dan Fellman, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Domestic Distribution. "The filmmakers and cast crafted a wonderful and fitting finale for this extraordinary franchise, and the response of the fans has been extremely gratifying."
Huge crowds gathered for the initial showings with some dressing up as their favorite character. The film is the first to be filmed in 3-D, and in honor of that some lucky fans attending midnight 3-D screenings received commemorative "Harry Potter 3-D" glasses to keep as a souvenir.

Parents with kids over 21, who like HP,have failed them? Why would our vets hate this generation? Your comment is confusing, could you explain? Is there any logic to it, or are you an idiot?
Bill, it seems your parents raised you to have a stick up your who-who. You have no imagination, no adventure, no anything....just cynical and sad. I feel sorry for you....I really do
If you are over 21 and like this, your parents failed in raising you. Im sorry, but its the truth. I see why anyone that fought in WW2, Korea, or Vietnam HATES our generation. lol

Way to go Harry! Looks like it's in red ink! Just go wipe it off whenever it suits you! Cannot wait to see the final installment. Sincerely, Deca
Harry Potter, the overall series was completley amazing.It was worth staying up late and waiting in line. It doesn't matter how old you are, anyone can love it but I felt like the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was rushed. I'm really sad it's over. I wanted to see more romance between Ron and Hermoine but J.K. Rowling you are great!
Another hour would've made the movie epic. Crucial moments left out could have been put back in and crucial moments so sadly rushed and almost thoughtlessly filmed could have had more deserved the more time they deserved.
Way to end the article with a false statement...The film was not "filmed" in 3d, it was converted in post production.
Sadly, the end of an era. Thank you JK Rowling for the magical journey, and for encouraging children to read.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was a great movie. Very unlike the books, but such a great film. Well worth staying up & waiting in line to see it at midnight.
I agree! I was so tired today at work because I didn't get home from the midnight showing until 4am, but it was totally worth it to see Harry Potter. I can't wait to see it a couple more times this weekend :)
Second!! Ha! Take that! Okay I'm done. Highlight of my day, ya know..... *cries about having no life*
