Harry Potter Series Has Generated More Than $1.6B in Disc Sales

Harry Potter is cinematic gold bullion.

The final film in the mega-grossing series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” shattered box office records last weekend after debuting to north of $478 million worldwide.

But that’s just a taste of the spoils to come if the bespectacled wizard’s performance on DVD and Blu-ray is any indication.

Thus far, the first seven films in Warner Bros. boy-wizard franchise have banked some $1.63 billion in domestic disc sales, according to new estimates from the media research firm IHS Screen Digest.

That heady number doesn’t even count the additional $150 million that “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1″ is still expected to generate on home video in North America. Also, importantly, it doesn’t take into account the hundreds of millions of dollars more the series has grossed in foreign home entertainment rentals and sales.

All told, the first six films in the series shipped an estimated 89 million video units in their initial releases to the U.S. video market during the past eight years, IHS reports.

Theatrically, Potter has lapped James Bond as the most lucrative franchise in movie history, having already grossed more than $6.8 billion worldwide through Tuesday. 

Here’s a look at the numbers IHS came up with:

‘Hogwarts Castle’ Lego Package: Best Harry Potter Lego Set Yet

Article by Rudy English

It appears it’s not possible to be a top film persona these days and not have your own Lego doppelganger. Harry Potter is among the top-selling book series ever and is the most profitable motion picture franchise in history, and therefore it was merely a question of time until Lego got involved. This, as expected, happened, and they’ve since introduced a large selection of Harry Potter Lego products.The most current, and as an aside greatest, Harry Potter Lego collection is referred to as ‘Hogwarts Castle’. It develops during the desperate events of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, when He Who Must Not Be Named attacks the wizarding school, and Harry, Ron, Hermione plus the remainder of the pupils have to preserve Hogwarts while fighting He Who Must Not Be Named and his lackeys. The Hogwarts Castle Lego set is available with Harry himself (it wouldn’t be much of a set without him, would it?), Ron, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Professor Dumbledore, Professor Trelawney as well as 2 dementors. Lego have gone the whole hog in making this their very best collection yet: first of all this package offers a massive 1290 pieces and is made up of 11 figures most notably for the very first time Lord Voldemort. Moreover, the attention to detail detailing of his features is just outstanding. Lego have clearly labored to ensure every aspect in this outstanding new collection is precisely like the Hogwarts Castle in the books and motion pictures. Consequently even the most devoted Harry Potter aficionados aren’t going to be disappointed.On top of that if you would like, you’re able to add in a whole lot more people to the milieu such as Professor Snape, Professor McGonagall, Flitwick, Mrs. Norris, Argus Filch and many more Dementors for even more breathtaking events necessitating the tricky ‘Patronus Charm’ to correctly fend them away.It’s impressive exactly how alike the Lego Hogwarts Castle is weighed against the Hogwarts Castle we have come to know both in the novels and the movies. The Lego version has even got the clock tower and its swinging pendulum, the Gryffindor Tower, as well as undetectable rooms that even Harry has not ventured in. It’s so extremely in-depth that both dutiful admirers plus non-fans should love it. You’ll even get access to Professor Dumbledore’s private office including its sliding stairway.With the eighth and last installment of the Harry Potter movie series in theaters now and destroying box office records around the globe, the series seems more popular than ever before. Given the immense status of the Potter franchise – a franchise displaying no signs of losing popularity – the Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle set will end up being particularly successful – it’s been diligently fashioned, and despite there being 1290 pieces in all, 8-14 year old kids will have no trouble in assembling it. Then again you will need to free up enough space for making the castle, and with heaps of small pieces you’ll also have to watch out for younger children and pets or you might end up losing some of the bits!So there it is – the Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle collection. The largest and best package ever.

I enjoy pc games and going on the internet on the hunt for the latest tech, plus also enjoy snooker – but don’t usually have enough spare time, sadly… at least these days.Buy a Harry Potter DVD or BookBuy Harry Potter Lego
