Harry Potter Casts A Record Spell On The Box Office

Jul 15, 2011 11:32 AM

Warner Bros.

The boy wizard has officially cast his spell on moviegoers - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 just scored the biggest midnight opening ever, earning $43.5 million.

The late-night opening stole the number one spot from another cult fave, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which earned $30 million during its midnight opening.

The franchise has always been known for breaking records, and it certainly kept up that trend with its final flick. The weekend has barely begun, but Deathly Hallows Part 2 has already generated over $100 million worldwide.

As if that weren't enough, every 3D midnight show was sold out and IMAX theaters broke records, earning more than $2 million in sales.

Talk about "mischief managed."

Now it's time to take bets on how many people called in sick Friday morning (as if Carmaggedon wasn't a good enough excuse for Los Angeles HP fans!).

Emma Watson looked stunning in a gold Bottega Veneta dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. Radcliff, who is currently appearing in Broadway's' How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, looked dapper in a black suit and grey shirt -- but did he forget to wash his hair?
