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.
