‘Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2′ Becomes Highest Grossing ‘Potter’ Flick

Harry PotterIt all ended with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," but at least it ended on top.

The last installment of the "Harry Potter" franchise was the most well-received of the eight-film-long series, but this weekend it became the highest grossing as well. After cresting the $1 billion mark over the weekend -- the first movie in the series to do so! -- it also hit a domestic gross of $318 million, making it the biggest "Potter" flick of all time.

Fittingly, the movie it bested for that title was the first flick in the series, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."

It's not much of a shock that "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" ended up making the most money in the series. After all, it had the hype factor going for it and also the buzz of a decade-long film franchise. It all did end on July 15, unless you (like us) are hopping on the Pottermore bandwagon.

But what was surprising is how quickly "Part 2" hit these accomplishments. Though the flick made most of its money over opening weekend (a record-breaking $169 million stateside), it has made more money in two and a half weeks than the rest of the series made in their entire theatrical runs. It will be interesting to see just how high "Part 2" can make it, because we think it still has some serious life left in it.

Do you plan on seeing "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" again in theaters? Are you surprised at how quickly it made this much money? Tell us in the comments section below or on Twitter!
