Fandango reported that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 made $43.2 million during midnight & early morning screenings, beating Eclipse’s record of $30 million.
Fandango sold more tickets to midnight and early morning shows than it has for any other late night opening ever, including The Dark Knight and New Moon.
The Dark Knight currently holds the record for the biggest opening weekend with $158 million while the sixth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, holds the worldwide opening weekend record with $394 million in tickets sold and Twilight: New Moon holds the single day record of $72.7 million.
