LOS ANGELES — “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2,” broke single-day box office records with a whopping $92.1 million in opening day sales, according to industry tracker Exhibitor Relations.

The eighth film in the Harry Potter series eclipsed 2009’s “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” which previously held the one-day ticket sales record at $72.7 million, added Exhibitor Relations.

“Deathly Hallows — Part 2,” the action-packed finale to one of the most successful movie franchises of all time, opened in North America cinemas Friday with a special midnight screening.

The film sees boy wizard Potter take on the evil Lord Voldemort in a climactic showdown, the second of two movies based on the final Potter book by British author J. K. Rowling.

Industry experts predict that Potter, and his wizarding friends, will set a new all-time opening weekend record, and beat current record holder superhero Batman into second place.

“The Dark Knight,” the last of Batman’s film adventures, hauled in $158 million on its opening weekend in 2008.
