Are U even surprised?? It is the end of an era, afterall.

Harry Potter's final film not only scored the largest midnight debut and opening day, but it also grabbed the prize for biggest opening weekend E-V-E-R!

Cray-zay!

Opening with $168.6 million in its domestic opening weekend, Deathly Hallows Part 2 obliterated the competition and knocked The Dark Knight's $158.4 million opening off its number 1 pedestal.

Warner Bros. is clearly king of the blockbuster movies!

The movie earned $15.5 million in just IMAX theaters alone and a mind-blowing $307 million in 59 countries, clearly surpassing Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which just recently took the crown for biggest international movie.

In case you're interested how the other movies did this weekend, here are the box office's Top 6 films:

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 — $168.6 mil
2. Transformers: Dark of the Moon — $21.3 mil
3. Horrible Bosses — $17.6 mil
4. Zookeeper — $12.3 mil
5. Cars 2 — $8.3 mil
6. Winnie the Pooh — $8.0 mil

We're so sad to say goodbye to Harry! It's been an emotional weekend, no doubt.

Soooo, what did U see this weekend??

    wow
    excellent



  2. 2

    best story of the day. made my work day better!



  3. 3

    good luck to the next big film to top that because those are some MIGHTY BIG WANDS to fill!



  4. 4

    It is not the biggest movie ever. It is the movie that has had the biggest opening weekend ever based on dollars made. It has a long way to go to beat Aviator or even Titanic. I think when its run it over with easily be in the top 10 maybe even 3rd. But it will never catch the top 2.



  5. 5

    Also by the amount of tickets sold it will never be the top movie. Perez you are one of the worst bloggers. I like reading gossip, but you are the worst reporter ever.

    Harry Potter fucking SUCKS!



  7. 7

    netgear makes a good point. biggest opening. not biggest ever, and likely won't get there as little potterheads have likely shot their load. definitely won't have the legs of avatar, or titanic for that matter.
    not a fan, but not the worst thing ever. i'd rather watch 'dark knight' 10 times than watch any potter movie. good for them though. and always happy to see talented actors (oldman, bonham-carter, rickman) get a good paycheck.



  8. 8

    Amazing film. But so sad.



  9. 9

    I SAW THE FLICK. WELL DONE!! THE ACTING IS TERRIFIC BY THE OLDER CHARACTER ACTORS. THE KIDS SUCK AS USUAL. A FEW OSCAR CALIBRE ACTING JOBS HERE.



  10. 10

    Awesome way to go out. Congrats to them!



  11. 11

    Emma is soooooo A W E S O M E !



  12. 12

    Suck it twihards.



  13. 13

    Yeah biggest based on opening. After all the potterheads go watch it no one else will. HP is so overrated.



  14. 14

    it was really bad, too bad my boyfriend wasted 6 dollers on it.



  15. 15

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, PennyTop.com

    $arah Palin's "The Undefeated" also opened this week-end. Evidently, when she was told that it would open with HP, she thought it would be a double feature.



  17. 17

    Re: heyitsbrenda – well, everyone in the world (but you) must be a potterhead then.



  18. 18

    This makes me happy. Thank you for everything Harry :]

    I loved it! I saw it twice!



  21. 21

    Re: netgear – Very true. Though actually the biggest movie of all time is Gone with the Wind. (I'm fairly sure, I haven't looked it up in a while though)



  22. 22

    I just saw this movie in 3D Imax..it was good not going to lie..I'm not so into the HP movies that my life revolves around them but it had some good special effects and the acting was good.



  23. 23

    Those kids better have had back end points in the contract. Oh, man.



  24. 24

    Why isn't the Sarah Palin movie on the list?



  25. 25

    yo perez the piggy, why don't you report about chris brown just broke tranny caca record for most fans at today show?????



  26. 26

    Harry Potter, duh!



  27. 27

    title well deserved. saw it twice and loved every second of it!!!! JK rowling is a genius and David Yates did not let me down this time. HOORAY Harry =D



  28. 28

    Re: netgear – - dont you mean Avatar, not Aviator. and yes Avatar and Titanic are number 1 & 2 for highest-grossing films worldwide.



  29. 29

    Congrads Harry Potter! The movies will become classics! *s*
    .
    But Yo! Perez!!! Why haven't you reported about how Lady GaGa got busted by Bette Midler by STEALING Ms. Midler's routine of a mermaid in a wheelchair in her act in Austrarlia. Lady GaGa got her head handed to her by the Divine Miss M!!!
    .
    Still protecting GaGa falling star, are you?



  30. 30

    Re: Samtra – Gone With the Wind is the highest-grossing film of all time if you adjust for inflation.. but only in the US and Canada, not worldwide.



  31. 31

    Anyone think the illuminati is behind all this Potter business? ;}



  32. 32

    it's frustrating that people see the need to leave rude comments. the majority of the people who are saying that this movie blows are those dumb people who find it necessary to dislike EVERYTHING that the majority likes, or favors. it's annoying. this is something that has been a part of more people than not's child hood..people love the story, and have grown up with it. so you rude people who have to dislike everything just because you like saying rude things…GO AWAY, NO ONE CARES!!!



  33. 33

    Re: kelseybellel6 – I agree! *s*



  34. 34

    Took my family and really enjoyed the movie. Some very sad parts but I expected that. Then we went to see Transformers now that was an eye opener. Had a really fun time at the movies. Oh, and here in the hot Midwest we are like about 110 for the next 7 days!

    I will take in other shows just to cool off! It's your choice so have fun and enjoy the movies!



  35. 35

    Such a good movie. I saw it on opening night and it was everything I expected it to be and more. I wanted to try and watch it again the opening weekend but I guess it'll have to wait.

    Wow, that is some money but I can't say that I'm surprised, Harry Potter part 2 is the best move ever. I also love the book, my second favorite in the series. BUt I really want to see it again, saw it on the opening night almost a week ago and I was really tired so I want to see it again.

    Re: eunice13 – Ah okay. Thank you for the clarification. I knew it was something of the sort but I couldn't remember exactly.



  41. 41

    It's bittersweet. Still sad and bummed out Harry Potter is over ;-(

    Harry Potter is and will always be the best and way better than stupid "Twilight".

    #1 BABY!



  42. 42

    Re: tellall – YOU SUCK!



  43. 43

    READ Eunice's comment… It is something I have been trying to find out for a while-and finally it iwas on '101 WAYS TO LEAVE A GAME SHOW' -The movie with the HIGHEST TICKET SALES… Not highest gross because that is all relevant to TICKET PRICES. Yes, Gone With the Wind was seen more times at the movie theater THEN ANY OTHER MOVIE!! But we NEVER get THAT TOTAL, EVER!!! It might give the movie goer a more acurate idea about the movie.. Because the Gross is not cared about, it is the NET that is care about to the STOCKHOLDERS…. and movie goers, we care about neither, just whether if it is GOOD!!!



  44. 44

    I'd pay to go see it again! It was amazing! So sad it's all over :(



  45. 45

    uhhuum conman and emma watson are dating perez says. love love love



  46. 46
