‘Harry Potter’ hits box office records where it hurts


I lied. Here’s another post about ‘Potter,’ but film buffs will appreciate the report. Now only James Cameron has something on these guys. It wasn’t pirates. It wasn’t giant machines. It wasn’t even aliens, cowboys, mutants or sharks that cast a spell over the box office this summer. Harry Potter takes the reigns for the highest grossing franchise in human history.

Harry Potter hits $900M worldwide in record time

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2‘ crossed the $900 million worldwide mark on Wednesday, its 15th day in release. That made Harry’s last stand the fastest movie ever to reach that milestone, breaking ‘Avatar’s‘ 18-day record. On Wednesday, Deathly Hallows Part 2 brought in $24.7 million worldwide ($5.2 million from domestic and $19.5 million from foreign), lifting its total to $906.8 million. It climbed to 19th place on the all-time chart, jumping past ‘Goblet of Fire’s‘ $896.9 million final haul. The first Harry Potter, ‘Sorcerer’s Stone,’ still ranks as the top-grossing with $974.8 million, while only ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides‘ and ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon‘ slot higher for 2011 with $1.03 billion and $926.1 million, respectively. ‘Deathly Hallows Part 2’ is on course to join the $1 billion club by early next week. Domestic alone, Deathly Hallows Part 2’s business was down 58 percent from last Wednesday to $5.2 million, falling harder but grossing more than the previous July Potters.

Final Harry Potter Movie is now the third highest grossing film of all time

It’s no surprise that the highest grossing franchise of all-time has broken just about every record in the book with its final installment, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.’ And while it will likely never become the top grossing film, it has squeaked into the top three, forcing Peter Jackson’s ‘Lord of the Rings: Return of the King’ out of the bronze medal position.

According to THR, ‘Death Hallows Part 2’ has edged past the billion dollar mark to $1.14 billion after this past weekend, helped by the largest China opening ever for a Warner Bros. film at $26.5 million. But don’t expect the film to just stop making money now. Potter has moved past ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ to become the highest grossing film domestically of the year, and after this week it will most definitely surpass ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ as the highest grossing international film of the year. It’s likely these records will not be topped.

The all-time third place position is where Potter will almost definitely stay, as two James Cameron power houses are sitting comfortably on the top spot thrones: ‘Titanic‘ is at number two with $1.8 billion, and ‘Avatar’ is number one with $2.8 billion. It is not impossible that Potter will earn another $400 million and surpass ‘Titanic’ to overtake the number two spot, but unless there’s another big push it’s unlikely to happen.
