    Harry Potter: History-Maker!

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Banner Warner Bros. Entertainment

    How big was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2's opening day?

    Record-shattering gigantic.

    And, despite the film's tag line, it does not all end here.

    Deathly Hallows: Part 2 grossed an estimated $92.1 million Friday, Warner Bros. said.

    The take was nearly as big as the year's biggest three-day weekend to date, and $20 million bigger than the opening-day record held by the Twilight franchise's New Moon.

    It was also Hollywood's largest-ever single-day gross, blowing away, among others, New Moon, Eclipse and The Dark Knight.

    Speaking of Batman…

    The box-office tracking firm Exhibitor Relations today guestimated the final Harry Potter will smash The Dark Knight's three-year-old opening-weekend record with a $175 million Friday-Sunday domestic haul.

    So, to recap: Opening-day record; single-day record; opening-weekend record (probably).

    That, boys and girls, is called going out on top.
