The thunderous performance of the Warner Bros fantasy finale puts it at $640.2m globally to ensure the biggest franshise in Hollywood history has crossed $7bn.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2’s $214.9m North American tally also means the studio has crossed the $1bn milestone in domestic ticket sales for the year-to-date — the 11th consecutive year it has achieved the feat.

The overseas tally stands at $425.3m following last weekend’s record $313.5m launch and Deathly Hallows looks a good bet to soar past $550m by the end of the weekend

It should cross $60m in the UK and $40m in each of Australia, Germany, Japan and France by the end of Sunday if not sooner. China will receive the film on Aug 4.

Meanwhile Paramount Pictures International’s (PPI) Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is expected to cross $500m given that the action sci-fi pulled in a further $37.5m last weekend and touches down in China – a massive market for the previous instalment.
