‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2′ smashed all midnight screening records Thursday by making an astonishing $43.5 million! Well done, Hogwarts!

Wow — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has hit theaters and it is already breaking records! It’s no surprise to any Harry Potter fan the final installment is generating as much buzz as it has this week, but now movie ticket sales have confirmed it. More than 6,000 midnight showings sold out prior to Thursday night’s big release and now, theaters even added 3:00 a.m. showings, because fans needed to see the movie as soon as possible! And we don’t blame them!

Update: As of Sunday, Harry Potter has grossed a record $293.8 million worldwide, Deadline reports.

So HollywoodLifers, Have you seen it yet? If so, tell us what you thought below!

I dont see how breaking dawn is even movie worthy. Not to spoil anything, but the movie will be edward knocking up bella, then bella being very dramatic about it. other vampires are pissed and want to kill but it never happened. I found the book very irritating. There was no point to it.

well, i watched it and it was EPIC AND SO AMAZING!!!!! i won’t compare it to Twilight cause there’s no way that Twilight ever manages to reach HP’s level!! totally appropriate for the ending of an era altough totally sad as well that it’s ended….RON AND HERMIONE FOR EVER!!!!
