Final Harry Potter movie breaks box office records worldwide.Final Harry Potter movie breaks box office records worldwide.

Here in the states, Harry and friends (and enemies) took over the top spot from 'The Dark Knight' for best opening weekend. According to Box Office Mojo, the final Potter film took in $168.55 million. Christopher Nolan's second Batman grossed a robust $158.4 million when it opened in 2008. Around the world, the cumulative Potter numbers were even larger. The movie grossed about $307 million, outgrossing the previous world box office record holder, 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,' by almost 20 percent.

Reviews starting to come in for the very last Harry Potter movie.Reviews starting to come in for the very last Harry Potter movie.

It ends well. After eight films in 10 years and a cumulative global box-office take of more than $6.3 billion, the most successful franchise in the history of movies comes to an obligatory -- and quite satisfying -- conclusion in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Fully justifying the decision, once thought purely mercenary, of splitting J.K. Rowling's final book into two parts, this is an exciting and, to put it mildly, massively eventful finale that will grip and greatly please anyone who has been at all a fan of the series up to now.

You can thank climate change for the reason as to why you're wearing a t-shirt in the middle of November. Global warming? What global warming?
