What Records Has ‘Harry Potter’ Broken, Exactly?

Harry Potter: Then & Now
A look at the 'Potter' cast through the years.
We all know by now Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is shattering records worldwide as we type, but where does the final film in the franchise come in compared to say The Dark Knight or Twilight?

Potterheads officially have bragging rights. Friday’s release of Harry Potter made $169,189,427 over the weekend — making it the largest opening weekend in history.

So what films did it surpass? Not only did it beat itself (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1) but it also kicked some vampire, Batman, and Spider-Man ass.

HP also crushed the record Friday for best single-day box office and best Friday box office with $92.1M.
