The final Harry Potter film easily shattered box office records on its first day in theaters.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2  earned $92.1 million on Friday, the largest one-day gross ever, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That total broke the record previously held by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which earned $72.7 million on its first day last summer.

Harry Potter was helped by the $43.5 million the film earned in midnight showings alone, which also broke Eclipse's $30 million midnight record.  

Analysts predict the final installment could rake in more $150 million in its opening weekend. The current holder of that record is The Dark Knight, which earned $158 million in its first weekend in 2008.
