Reuters is reporting that "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" has reached $900 million in the worldwide box office only 15 days after its initial release. This makes it the fastest movie to ever reach this milestone, breaking the previous 18-day record held by James Cameron's "Avatar."
In the U.S., "Part 2" has brought in over $291 million and another $615 million in the foreign box office.
According to analysts, "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" is on track to become the first Harry Potter film to reach the $1 billion mark. Currently, "Sorcerer's Stone" holds the top spot as the biggest Harry Potter film with a total of $974.8 million.
I already saw it twice and I’m going again in a couple of days… but… why is everybody so happy that the movie is reaching the billion dolar mark? We are not getting any dime of it… we’re making WB soooooo rich! I’m just glad the movie got such great acceptance not only because we are loyal fans but because it is the end of an era.
@ chikitcorpuzvesterbaek, I agree with having Neville with hufflepuff student Hannah Abbott.
Yeah, I’ll go watch it a 2nd time. The only reason I didn’t is because I wanted to watch it with a friend who hasn’t seen it yet.
with a 17 day holiday ( with 3 days left) a years cinema pass which allows me to go to the cinema as many times as i wish during that period and a bemused group of family and friends. i’ve seen this film 31 times and counting. When Harry’s on, i only go and see him. Same as when in New York in April I went for 5 days purely to see Dan in H2S and saw it 6 times.If i enjoy it, why not. When i watch the end and see the three leads fading into blackness, i know it’s the end of an era.
Fantastic! Hopefully we’ll be able to beat Titanic, I don’t think anything will move Avatar from the top spot. grumbles
I was going to see the film again on the 31st to celebrate Harry’s birthday but I’m desperate be be a Pottermore tester, I’ll probably go next week instead (and the week after that, and the week after that ETC.) :D
I saw it twice on IMAX 3D the first I’ve ever done in my movie watching life…and I must say with the rate of movie watchers up until now in 2D, 3D or IMAX 3D reaching the 1 billion mark is definitely possible.
