The final Harry Potter flick, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, opens in 3,800 theaters at 12:01 a.m. on Friday. By the end of the day, it will be in 4,375 theaters, the biggest North American opening for the franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It's also the first 3D HP film, and it will play in 3,000 theaters (and on 275 IMAX screens) in that format.

“We appreciate the loyalty of the Harry Potter fans and understand that they have been waiting 10 years for this moment," said Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution. 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."
