Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 Crosses $1 Billion

Box Office

Thompson on HollywoodSince it opened 17 days ago, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 has been breaking box office records, but remember—the series finale had a 3-D boost. Anthony D’Alessandro does the global numbers:

In just 17 days, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 flew past the $1-billion mark at the global box office, making it the highest grossing chapter in the franchise as well as the ninth film ever to cross this benchmark (top nine grossers list is below).

Prior to Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone sat as the franchise’s highest-grossing installment for a decade, with $974.8 million.


Thompson on Hollywood

This raises the total for the entire Harry Potter franchise to $7.385 billion.  Potter has been the highest-grossing film series since 2009, when Half-Blood Prince assisted in unseating James Bond’s $5.1 billion global tally for the title.  After Bond, the two Star Wars trilogies and its feature toon The Clone Wars rank third with a cumulative $4.4 billion.

Even more impressively, Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is the second film this year after Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides to cross the $1 billion milestone—soon to be followed by Transformers: Dark of the Moon which is currently at $982.9 million. Transformers 3 will round out the $1-billion grosser list as a perfect 10. All three coasted on 3-D premium ticket prices, however.

All of these benchmarks bode well for the longevity the 3-D format, which is a continual B.O. driver abroad, versus its touch-and-go status in the U.S.  Since Avatar, 3-D films have populated the top billion-makers list; five 3-D titles already occupy a spot in the top nine.  As exhibition turns to digital 3-D overseas in such prime territories as China and Russia, the format’s share of foreign receipts on a particular title easily hits 60% on average.  During its opening weekend, 43% of Deathly Hallows: Part 2’s domestic opening was repped by 3-D, while internationally that share was significantly higher at 60%. Through its second frame, 3-D accounted for 56% of Deathly Hallows: Part 2’s foreign cume.

Despite these impressive ratios, where international reps 70% of a film’s worldwide ticket sales, the irony remains that major studios tend to green light projects based on their potential success in the U.S. versus abroad.  Although international saves the asses of many projects, some studios continue to spend more on U.S. audience test marketing than foreign.  That because stateside success usually translates abroad. A bomb in North American actually playing abroad is the exception. Annually, this theory is often disproven, as foreign B.O. swells and such anomalies as The Golden Compass ($70.1 million stateside, $302.1 million foreign) and The Tourist ($67.6 million, $210.7 million foreign) prove they are worthwhile.


Top Nine Worldwide Grossers List

1.Avatar ($2.78 billion)
2. Titanic ($1.8 billion)
3. The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ($1.119 billion)
4. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest ($1.066 billion)
5. Toy Story 3 ($1.06 billion)
6. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) ($1.032 billion)
7. Alice in Wonderland ($1.024 billion)

9. The Dark Knight ($1.002 billion).

Harry Potter $1 billion | Worldwide Box Office | Gossip Cop

Rating

(Warner Bros.)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 passed $1 billion at the worldwide box office on Sunday, a first for history’s most successful film franchise.

2001’s original, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, came closest to the milestone, with a final tally of $974.8 million. Adjusted for inflation, it’s still the record-holder.

But Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint’s current hit is now racing up the all-time list.

The eighth and final Potter movie has now earned $318 million in North America and $690 million overseas, passing The Dark Knight for 8th on the all-time worldwide box office chart and passing Transformers: Dark of the Moon to become the year’s second-highest grossing movie.

It should wind up topping 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which is currently at $1.033 billion worldwide.

Despite its incredible success, Deathly Hallows will need serious magic to become history’s all-time champ.

That title still goes to Avatar, which earned a staggering $2.78 billion across all markets two years ago.

Premier Magic Wand Maker Selects The UrbanStash.com For Exclusive Worldwide Distribution

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 16, 2007

The UrbanStash.com is pleased to announce the addition of Thordarson Wands Magical Wands to the UrbanStash.com Collection. The Thordarson Wands line includes limited edition magic wands that are hand-crafted solid wood, hand-painted and suitable for museum display. The UrbanStash.com is the exclusive online retailer of Thordarson Wands.

“We’re very excited to carry the Thordarson Wands line of collectible magic wands,” said Greg Ladson of The UrbanStash.com. “The wands complement our collectible toy lines, particularly the Harry Potter? licensed products. Even if you’re not a fan of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter? books, a Thordarson Wand makes an excellent showpiece.”

Made in the U.S.A, Thordarson Wands are beautifully hand-crafted. Each wand comes with an official certificate of ownership, a unique and stylish display stand, and an enchanted core. The Thordarson Wands come in a variety of classic styles and measure between 15 and 21 inches in length.

“Unlike other wands, the size of Thordarson Wands makes for a much more substantial and formidable appearance,” said Joe Thordarson, Thordarson Wands founder and Master Wand Maker.

The wands come in assorted colors on the handle and tip. “My kids love the Harry Potter books and wanted something to remind them of the Ravenclaw?, Hufflepuff?, Slytherin? and Griffindor? House colors,” explains Thordarson. “The Crescent Moon 1st Gen wands come in gold, green, blue, black and red in honor of those traditional House colors.”

Thordarson Wands 1st Generation collectibles will be available in limited supply beginning November 1, 2007, at http://www.urbanstash.com.

deathly-hallows-voldemort-harry-potter.jpg“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” made history the weekend of July 31, becoming the first film in the Potter franchise to pass the worldwide $1 billion mark just two weeks after its theatrical debut.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Deathly Hallows Part 2” earned $926 million over the weekend, enough to reach the milestone.

‘Deathly Hallows 2’ is only the ninth movie in history to reach that target, the others are “Avatar,” “Titanic,” “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” “Toy Story,” “The Dark Knight,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”

Only one movie, according to THR, has grossed more than $2 billion: James Cameron’s “Avatar.”
