For those keeping track at home, we have a quick update today regarding box office success for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. While faring well here in the US, the sixth installment in the Harry Potter series continues to have very impressive box office sum totals due to international showings.  ScreenDaily reports:

"Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince became the third biggest film in the series worldwide after adding $7.7m from 5,000 screens in 61 markets through Warner Bros Pictures International (WBPI) for $610.5m overseas and $904.9m globally. Greece was the final territory to receive the sixth episode in the family franchise and delivered an excellent $1.9m from 135 screens that was a clear number one and scored the biggest launch of the year.

Latest figures put Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince on $80.8m in the UK, $79.4m in Japan, $60.9m in Germany, $51.6m in France, $31.7m in Australia, $27m in Italy, $24.1m in China, $21.4m in Mexico, $19.6m in Spain, $18.6m in Brazil, and $18.4m in Russia."

You can also see slightly different numbers here (international here) from Box Office Mojo.

I went twice, once being in IMAX 3D. I am glad it is doing so well and I hope they use that money to make the next 2 great.

Congratulations go to JK Rowling & her great story telling.

Warner Brothers & Yates no matter how they butcher the great stories in the Harry Potter series, they still make mega $$$$$$ on it. I thought that OOTP was the worst movie in the HP series until HBP which I rated as “D” for dreadful. I think Warner Brothers & Yates could make an HP movie of Harry taking a nap & still make $$$$$$$$$ on it. Sad part is that Warner Brothers could have done great things with the HP series with their movies, but Warner Brothers is just milking it.

Thank God for the books!!!!!!!!!!

Also when I went to see GOF it cost $7.50, HBP cost $9.00 so take that into consideration on the totals.

I wish that Columbus had directed all the Harry Potter movies! He brought the great stories by JK to life on the screen. Unlike Yates who has butchered them + added pure crap. Sad what he has done to these great stories.
