LOS ANGELES — Harry Potter has added to his billions with a whopping $24 million domestic haul from midnight screenings of his latest adventure.

According to box-office tracker Hollywood.com, that puts "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" third in the record books for midnight debuts, behind the last two "Twilight" movies: last summer's "Eclipse" with $30 million and 2009's "New Moon" with $26.3 million.

"Deathly Hallows" outdid the last installment in the franchise about the young wizard, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," which took in $22.2 million in its midnight debut last year.
