Spoiler Alert: Harry Potter didn't defeat just the dark lord Voldemort this weekend. He also defeated the dark Volturi vampires and the Dark Knight. After years of anticipation, the final Potter picture, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2' opened with an estimated $168.5 million, smashing multiple box office records to become one of the biggest debuts ever.

The franchise's final film opened with a bang, scoring $43.5 million in the wee hours Friday morning and easily outstripping the midnight-movie record of $30 million set by the witching-hour debut of 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' last summer. By the end of the day Friday, 'Deathly Hallows' had grossed $92.1 million, beating the single-day record of $72.7 million set by 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' on its opening day in 2009. And as the weekend drew to a close, the film also soared above the last Batman movie, exceeding the $158.4 million premiere of 2008's 'The Dark Knight' to set a new record for a three-day opening weekend.
