"Harry Potter" Breaks Opening Records

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is breaking records left and right. Not only did it score the highest grossing opening weekend of all time domestically this weekend with a $168.6 million haul, but worldwide as well, selling $475.6 million after only 3 days in theaters.

Granted, the film had already grossed a record $43.5 million before it even opened, breaking records for midnight screenings in the process, but this is still impressive. It beat out the previous record holder, The Dark Knight's, opening gross by a solid $10 million.

This will doubtless be the year's top grosser, but the final question remains - how high will it go? Will it ultimately pull in Dark Knight numbers when all is said and done?
