We can't believe that it could make this much and not break any records!
The midnight showings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have allegedly pulled in $24 million for the 3,700 locations in North America!
Holy shiz, right?
However, it only comes in third for highest grossing midnight film premiere, because both Twilight sequels, New Moon and Eclipse, beat it out at their respective $26.2 and $30 million - the current record holder!
Whatevs! We maintain that quality always beats quantity!

In a UK press conference this afternoon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse star, Kellan Lutz, has revealed that he has been handcuffed a time or two.
And it's not by his girlfriend AnnaLynne McCord either! (or at least he's not fessing up to it- ha!)
The hottie admitted, "Once I was signing an autograph for Twilight and a fan asked if she could take me home. I was like 'Yeah just hand me your paper to be autographed' and she yanked out some big old handcuffs and I was like 'OH!'"
And then it happened AGAIN!
While he was doing the New Moon circuit, a fan "pulled out some fuzzy handcuffs then she undid her jacket and she had a very nice little number on."
As seksi as he is, he's bound to get some crazy fans.

If you want to brush up on your Twilight obsession or get a chance to meet one of the stars of The Twilight Saga - you may be in luck!
Summit Entertainment has announced they will be a holding a Twilight Night in 12 cities throughout the US.
The night (June 26) will consist of a viewing of the first and second movies, Twilight and New Moon.
But that isn’t all.
The Official Twilight Website claims that “special cast appearances and activities are planned for each city and guests will be treated to a red carpet and photo booth experience.”
We wonder if the seksi Rob Pattinson will be in YOUR city!?!

Most people don't remember that Robert Pattinson actually got his start in the Harry Potter franchise before he blew up as Edward Cullen.
Course, he was only in the film (SPOILER- he dies), but it was a significant enough role that he got to work with a lot of the cast, including Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy.
Tom was actually at the
New Moon MTV Movie Awards on Sunday to accept his popcorn bucket for Best Villain. He was asked about the man of the year, R-Patz, and what he thought of his success. Tom replied:
"I hadn't seen him for a long time actually, and then I saw him for his Remember Me premiere, and I was amazed that he remembered me…Rob's very sweet and just a very cool guy. He's actually very unaffected by all this. He's kind of the beacon of hope for life after Harry Potter. I'm very proud of him."
No worries, Tom. We think you will do fine after Potter has ended. Now that ginger-headed kid who hangs around Daniel Radcliffe - he's got problems!

Ha! Not that we don't think they're deserved but are those legit award categories?!
Whatever. As long as RPatz is happy!

Hottie Kellan Lutz was spotted around Los Angeles yesterday hanging out with his
girlfriend AnnaLynne McCord.
The two even stopped by Hamburger Mary's in Hollywood last night for a bit during the restaurant's bingo night. And when one of the prizes just happened to be a DVD of New Moon, the hottie was gracious enough to sign the copy.
After about 20 minutes at the joint, Kellan and AnnaLynne decided to head on out.
If you were there last night, send in pics!
