"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2"

For many young adults, the end of Harry Potter marks the end of childhoods, but the final installation of the series, “”Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” did not only break hearts, it broke box office records all over the world.

In North America alone, the film grossed $168.6 million in ticket sales making it the biggest opening weekend in history without compensating for inflation. The previous record was $158.4 million, set by “The Dark Knight” in July of 2008, according to Hollywood.com. Harry Potter also broke the record for biggest midnight opening, $43.5 million, biggest opening day sales, $92 million, and best IMAX Theater sales with $15.5 million.

Overseas Harry Potter did just as well, earning the best foreign opening of all time with $370 million. This blew the opening of “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which held the previous record with $260.4 million, completely out of the water. But that wasn’t enough. The total of all tickets sales, throughout the world, make the final Harry Potter movie the best debut film ever with $475.6 million. The record was previously held by “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince,” which debuted with $394 million worldwide sales.

Last but not least, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ also stole the best reviews of the year according to both Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.
