Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows brought in $24 million across the nation last night, as fans lined up for midnight showings of this blockbuster.

While impressive, though, that tally falls short of two Twilight Saga installments.

The record-holder for midnight showing haul is Eclipse, which earned $30 million during the first two hours of its release. That figure topped the previous best: New Moon's $26.3 million.

In 2009, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince brought in $22 million during this time slot, proving once and for all: no magic is a match for chiseled abs and brooding paleness!
