So far. So good for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Early reports indicate the eighth and final movie of the critically acclaimed series has already broken early box office records. In just one full day, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 has brought in $92.1 million at the box office, breaking the record for a single day. The previous record was held by Twilight Saga: New Moon which got $72 million two years ago.
The movie seems destined to break The Dark Knight's record for an opening weekend box office of $158 million back in 2008. Estimates from various sources predict $158 million Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will bring in $180 million.
The final movie ends a run of popularity that began in 2000 when the first movie was released. The movie has been widely praised by critics continuing a trend that has continued through each movie. Each of the Potter movies has earned more than $200 million at the box office and got more than 78 percent fresh ratings on Rottentomatoes.com (a site which adds up all of the movie critics' ratings and scores the movie appropriately).
The cast of Harry Potter led by Daniel Radcliffe came into the series as virtual unknowns. Since then, Radcliffe and co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, have grown up and become international celebrities.
The movies derive from the popular series of books from author J.K. Rowling. The British born author has promised more Harry Potter projects in the future through a website called Pottermore.
Here is a look at a few scenes outside the opening of the movie across the world.
