Coming in as no surprise, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” has already reached record breaking status.

Warner Bros. released an official statement on Wednesday (July 13) stating, “Warner Bros. Pictures ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’ has already broken several records in the days leading up to the series finale hugely anticipated release.”

President of Warner Bros. Pictures, Dan Fellman said, “We appreciate the loyalty of Harry Potter fans and understand that they have been waiting 10 years for this moment. We can’t wait to show them the movie, which we believe delivers on every level, so we are putting the film out on as many screens as possible in an effort to satisfy demand from coast to coast. We want to ensure that fans who have been counting down to the finale will have every chance to see it, early and often, and we hope that they will take advantage of the opportunity to watch all their favorite characters in 3D for the first time, which is an experience not-to-be-missed.”

Advance ticket sales have skyrocketed to more than $32 million, a new pre-opening record.
