I AM PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT STAR WARS EPISODE 3 REVENGE OF THE SITH IS THE OLDEST FILM ON THE LIST!!!!

And ONE OF 4 from the PRE 3D Inflation AGE!

THAT IS THE POWER OF THE FORCE!

LONG LIVE STAR WARS....the Box Office awaits your GREAT return in 2019 with Episode 7!!!!!!!!!!!

*breathes in an out deeply from fanboyism*

On topic:

Congrats to Potter, great gross for a great film!!!

I bet Star Wars is at the top for most ticket sales.

Seece ye know the original Star Wars (so Episode 4 as its known as now) is number 2 of all time behind Gone With The Wind in ticket sales in America.

Then Episode 1 is the biggest ticket seller of the past 20 years barring Avatar & Titanic and Episode 3 is way up there. Star Wars as a whole is massive in America....overseas unfortunately all the movies were released before the massive overseas explosion took place!

Niice, I really like that list, much more indicative of quality ...

Yeah! Nowadays because of DVD releases so quickly, online piracy etc any movie in the Top 50 that released after 1997 should be very proud of itself!

*realises Episode 3 is at number 58*

erghh correction any movie released after 1997 in The Top 60 should be proud of itself!!!!!!11

Eh. I never take the adjustment charts for what they are worth. With all the other royalty schemes involved today, you can't compare a movie like GWTW that had nearly a dozen re-releases and almost no competition with something today which is out in theaters for 3 months, then comes to DVD.

Enjoy Potter for what it is. I am more impressed with the $300m OS which didn't involve China. It could flirt with a billion OS, which would only be the third movie to do so, ever.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

That's impressive! But with ticket prices being more expensive and with 3D playing a decent role in sales, it's a no-brainer that this movie beat TDK. Of course, the TDKR will take the crown once again due to prices being higher and 3D. Still, HP is one of the most successful franchise of all time! I went to watch Transformers 3 yesterday and the theater was PACKED with people waiting to watch HP.

TKDR won't be in 3D so I expect it to be close



Around-the-World Brief: 'Potter' Obliterates Foreign Record

 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2outpaced even the most generous prognostications this weekend, setting a new weekend record with an incredible estimated $307 million at the foreign box office. That's 18 percent up on the previous record-holder, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and 30 percent up onHalf-Blood Prince's series record. Add in its stunning domestic take and Deathly Hallows Part 2 also eclipsedHalf-Blood Prince to set the worldwide opening weekend record with an astronomical $475.6 million. 

Not surprisingly, Potter's top territory was its native United Kingdom. It earned $36.6 million, which represented the biggest three-day weekend ever. It also obliterated the previous opening weekend record in Australia, where it debuted to $26.7 million. While it didn't set any weekend records in its other major territories, it still raked in boatloads of cash in Germany ($25.7 million), France ($23.9 million), Japan ($21.5 million), Russia ($19.5 million), Mexico ($15.3 million), Italy ($15.1 million), South Korea ($11 million), Brazil ($11 million) and Spain ($8.3 million). On average, the opening weekend 3D share was 61 percent, which was lower than Transformers: Dark of the Moon (70 percent) and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (66 percent). Foreign IMAX theaters accounted for $8 million, or 2.6 percent ofPotter's weekend.

"Harry Potter is truly a cultural phenomenon the world over," said Veronika Kwan-Rubinek, Warner Bros. president of international distribution, in a press release. "Whether in German, French, Japanese, Russian, or any language, international audiences have embraced the Harry Potter films over the years, with the powerful finale punctuating just how special the property is. We congratulate everyone associated with the films on this monumental achievement."

With $475 million worldwide already, Potter is poised to cross the half-billion dollar point sometime tomorrow, which is its sixth day in theaters. That slays the previous speed record established by Dark of the Moon just two weeks ago. Deathly Hallows Part 2 is also well-positioned to become the highest-grossing Harry Potter movie ever on a foreign and worldwide basis, and will almost certainly become the third movie this summer to reach $1 billion worldwide.

Rises is just a mere transition. Avatar 2 will shatter them all.

Avatar was just an average movie that did what it did because it was in 3D,it won't be the same case with A2.If anything,Avatar 2 should do some decent numbers because of Avatar's fanbase.

It likely won't overall, as HP will beat it outside the US.
