Harry Potter beats Dark Knight

ENTERTAINMENT - You know its good when you go to see it twice in the same weekend.

We give Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 a solid 4.5 stars out of 5.

Meanwhile the boy wizard has also vanquished the Dark Knight with record-setting profits at the weekend box office.

Warner Bros. estimates that “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” took in $168.6 million domestically from Friday to Sunday. That beats the previous best opening weekend of $158.4 million, also held by Warner Bros. for 2008’s Batman film: “The Dark Knight”.

Warner Bros. has not released the full international numbers for the whole weekend, but “Deathly Hallows: Part 2” has been working the same charms since it began showing overseas last Wednesday.

Since Friday the film had taken in $157.5 million internationally, putting it on course to become Harry Potter’s first billion-dollar worldwide hit.
