Every "Potter" film has flirted with a billion dollars worldwide, but
will the sixth movie finally cross that sacred plateau? By the time
July 17 rolls around, it will have been two years since fans saw their
wizard friends onscreen, and many regard "Half-Blood" to be one of the
best books in the franchise. Through the first five films, Harry has
overseen the most successful movie franchise of all time, and it seems
likely that "Prince" will once again crown him king.
, such films as the film adaptation of Angels and Demons
, Terminator: Salvation
, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
also made the list. The complete list of Top 10 Surefire 2009 Blockbusters can be found right here
.Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
will be in theaters July 17, 2009.
I don’t know if the sales will go over 1 billion but i think it will be the best movie yet.
I think the combined movie gross of Deathly Hallows 1 and 2 will go over 2 billion, which would be counted as one movie record! As for HBP, I think the comedy aspect will help the overall bottom line…it looks brilliant!
All I can say is… I can not wait!!!
I think you’re wrong, i went to see Oopt 5 times when it was released, that’s how easily they make the money. But i have to agree, this movie will be the best one yet.
I just hope that HP#6 will better than HP#5 which I thought was awful. It was D for dreadful. I hope that HP#6 will be a whole lot better.
Everyone certainly is entitled to their opinion, but I myself liked OOTP the best. I guess part of it might be because aside from DH, it’s my favorite of the books.
if u think wb is dropping sdh due to reccession click here
All I can say to this is… “Duh!” Of course it’s Top Ten, I’m surprised it’s not #1 given the competition and how many people love Harry. Cannot WAIT!!!!
HA! Scratch that! It IS #!!!! Should have read the list first. :)
Of course HBP was #1, I’m also really excited that Avatar was #2!
I wasn’t that impressed with OotP, although I did see it 3 times at the cinema and it cashed in a LOT. I have high expectations for HBP (also because it was my fav book in the series) and, by what I see now it’s gonna be good and probably cash in mor ethan OotP.
Sounds about accurate, although I’m surprised they placed Salvation so high on the list. The Terminator franchise has been on the rocks for a few years, and I’m not sure if even Bale will be able to push it into “blockbuster” territory.
There’s a reason they moved HBP into the summer, and that’s because WB’s not comfortable enough with Salvation as its tentpole summer feature.
Also, if any of those movies has the chance to move, it has to be Up. Pixar’s a juggernaut, it could easily pass Avatar and Terminator, and probably Transformers.
I hope it makes a lot. But i cant wait to see it. 6 months…EXCITED!!!!!!!1
