It was a record-breaker for the "Harry Potter" finale, topping the previous best domestic debut of $158.4 million for "The Dark Knight." Factoring in today's higher admission prices, "The Dark Knight" sold more tickets, though.

"Deathly Hallows: Part 2" also had a record overseas opening with $307 million in 59 countries. The film is approaching half a billion dollars at the worldwide box office after just days in release.
