Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has shattered the all-time opening weekend box office record. The last of the Potter films will bring in an estimated $158.4 million this weekend.

That's $10 million more than 2008's The Dark Knight, the previous record-holder.

As previously reported, the magical film set a record on Friday with the all-time opening day take.

The movie is a huge hit internationally too, and its three-day worldwide gross is reported as $496 million.
