The Harry Potter films were already the highest-grossing franchise of all time, a global record attained after the release of the sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, in 2009.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 earned $640.2 million worldwide in its first week, $214.9 million domestically and $425.3 million at the international box office.

This year's receipts have contributed to Warner Bros. Pictures’ earning combined domestic box office of more than $1 billion for an eleventh consecutive year, an industry record.

"It is an extraordinary privilege for everyone at Warner Bros. to share in this piece of cinema history," says Jeff Robinov, president, Warner Bros. Pictures Group. "We are extremely grateful to the Harry Potter fans, who have remained loyal to the movies for more than a decade. We also want to congratulate the amazing roster of actors and filmmakers, whose artistry and talent is evident in every frame of every film. But special thanks must go to the woman whose incomparable imagination literally changed the world, Jo Rowling.”
