A befitting end to a magical series!
As of this weekend, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 has grossed more than $1.13 billion worldwide. It has surpassed the grosses of both Toy Story 3 and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and now takes the #3 spot behind Avatar and Titanic.
If ever there was a time to give Harry a standing O, this would be it!
Congrats to the whole cast and crew. Your ten years of dedication and artistry have bestowed you quite an achievement!

Wow. We honestly have NO idea what to make of this!
Although it's safe to say that critics and readers alike were completely enamoured with the final installment of J.K. Rowling's wildly successful Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, there has been a great deal of debate regarding the public's feelings regarding the novel's - and its subsequent film adaptation's - epilogue.
However, according to journalist Greg Palast, who befriended the author years ago, there was an original, wildly different conclusion to the series, which deters from the final text around the last confrontation between Harry and his nemisis, Voldemort, and then continues off in a much stranger direction than what made it into print!
According to Palast:

Consider us completely unsurprised and extraordinarily gleeful!!! The Boy Who Lived is living quite well!
On it's first full day in theaters, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 smashed the record for the largest single-day gross with a $92.1 million haul! Warner Bros. execs are calling it an "unbelievable night" and couldn't be more thrilled to have crushed the record formerly held by The Twilight Saga: New Moon ($72.7 million.)
The movie has made an estimated $174.6 million worldwide so far and is well on its way to pushing right past The Dark Knight's $158.4 million debut as the biggest stateside opening in box office history!
Ahhh-mazing!!! An epic ending for an epic franchise! It doesn't get much better than this!
So, HAVE U SEEN IT YET????
