Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Takes Down The Twilight Saga

by at . Comments

In what will likely be the first of many records set by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, the film has knocked The Twilight Saga out of a number-one perch.

The final adventure for Daniel Radcliffe and company $43.5 million at midnight screenings Friday morning, demolishing the $30 million mark set by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Harry cleared $90 overall yesterday, blowing by the $72 million record by The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Look for it to gross over $180 million before the weekend is over, which would move it past The Dark Knight and prove once and for all:

Movie goers prefer wizards to vampires and mayhem-causing superheroes.

I both like Twilight and Harry Potter. Everybody has diffrent opinons. I'm sorry that The Harry Potter is over. I wonder what they will do now and dont forget about the Hunger Games! Twilight fans and Harry Potter fans this is a movie with BOTH romance AND ACTION people are saying that the Hunger Games is the new Twilight AND the new Harry Potter seris! Even though I dont know how it will work out but I heard it will be good and Breaking Dawn is copying the Harry Potter with 2 movies and Breaking Dawn the book isnt that big the last Harry Potter book is HUGE!

ummmmm, Harry Potter is the best films and books ever made! Can't believe it's the end. Twilight is to me not as important as Harry Potter. I 've seen Twilight and sure they are alright but eclipse and new moon. is a joke to me, compared to harry Potter....

@natani has an excellent point. I'm a Harry Head and a Twihard, but HP7pt2 was amazing, and I don't think Breaking Dawn will beat that. Harry beats Bella by far in my mind!

It was the last potter movie after all! Just wait till Breaking Dawn part 2 comes out. It'll blow this out of the water.
