Harry Potter casts his final spell over the US box office
Harry Potter went out with a bang this weekend – the boy wizard’s last ever movie outing smashed box office records as the film rolled out worldwide.
Stateside, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 earned a staggering $168m in its first weekend.
With that much cash being thrown at it, the final Harry Potter film even managed to top The Dark Knight’s opening weekend record of $158m, creating a new record for the highest ever US opening weekend. Yes, ever.
Internationally, Deathly Hallows Part 2 took a further $75m, meaning its total global earnings are actually a Gringotts-busting $250m.
