The wizards have whipped up their magic at the box office. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has already pulled in a whopping $43.5 million on the midnight showings alone! This shatters the previous record held by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which grossed $30 million from midnight shows in 2010.

Did you see Harry Potter at midnight on Friday? If so, give us your review of the film in the comments below!

Obviously it also has outdone all the other Harry Potter films that came before it. Entertainment Weekly reports: 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1 earned $24 million at midnight last year, while Half-Blood Prince pulled in $22.2 million. Part 2 also more-than-tripled the $12 million that Order of the Phoenix earned at midnight, and earned almost seven times as much as Goblet of Fire, which grossed $6.3 million at midnight.”

Wow! What a way to end the series! We wonder if Twilight’s final film will be able to top Harry Potter’s impressive record breaking showing.
