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.

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

By how much?$100M?$150M?Not enough to beat it overall.

Most of the HP movies have outgrossed TDK with almost 200 mlm. each outside of the US. According to Box Office Mojo here's how much The Dark Knight and the Harry Potter films have grossed outside the US:

The Dark Knight $468.6 mln.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone $657 mln.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets $616.7 mln.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban $546.1 mln.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire $605.9 mln.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix $646.2 mln.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince $632 mln.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 $660 mln.

Considering the popularity of the franchise, the fact that it's the last part, the amazing reviews, and the fact that it's in 3D, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will easily become the most successful movie in the franchise, and will probably gross between $800 mln. and $1bln. outside the US (plus, the 3D especially will probably help it reach $400 mln. in the US).It's total world wide gross will end up being between $1.2-1.4 bln.

As for The Dark Knight Rises, it will not outgross HP. First of all, it's not in 3D. Second of all, it won't have the benefit of one of it's stars dying to draw attention to it (hoepfully, I'm sure we don't want anyone dying, do we?). Outside of the US it will probably do similar to what TDK did (either slightly less, or slightly more), which would put it $300 mln. behind HP if my predictions for that movie turn out to be accurate. In order for TDKR to make up for the difference it would need to not only outgross TDK in the US, but gross almost as much as Avatar did in the US, which is a feat unlikely to be pulled off, especially if you don't have 3D (and even then it may not be enough if HP reaches $1 bln. overseas).

You do realize how much the foreign markets have grown since 2008 right?

A very good example is Transformers DOTM,which is on track to pass $650M OS,and yet the previous movie did only $434M.Yes I know that ROTF wasn't in 3D,but that merely accounts for a 10-15% increase.

The Dark Knight did $468M back in 2008,a year before Revenge of the Fallen,with the OS market being weaker.It may not be in 3D but it is being shot in IMAX,which helps a bit.TDKR releases one year from now,god knows how much the foreign markets will grow even further.

Another thing you're forgetting is Inception.A part of it's audience will go see TDKR,because it will be obviously marketed as being made by Inception's director.

You brought up Heath Ledger's death,how can that account for more than a 5-7% increase?(even that is too much).

TDKR has something better than Heath Ledger,much better.The same factor that is helping HP right now,the finale factor.This is the end of Nolan's trilogy,after all.

IMO,Potter will pass $800M,but it will end around $850M.Pirates 4 ended up with $787M,and it opened with $260M,not even $50M less than HP7-2.With 350M DOM,it will get to 1.2B.

Right now,TDKR would do somewhere around $650M-$700M OS,a year from now it will be higher than that for sure.

If it does $550M DOM,but I doubt it will decrease with the finale factor,and $700M OS,it gets 1.2B-1.3B.All my bets are on Batman.



Awesome stuff for HP.. thoughg huge Satrday/Sunday drops. Expected nonetheless

The reason why TDK grossed so "little" in foreign markets wasn't because those markets weren't big enough, but because Batman has never been popular outside the US. TDK did "poorly" comapred to other big blockbusters (both released before it, and even in the same year) in foreign markets. All you have to do is check out Box Office Mojo's chartes, and you'll see that even movies as old as Jurassic Park did better. So what if Nolan directed Inception? TDKR isn't Inception, it's a Batman movie. There's no way TDKR will gross $700 mln. outside of the US (and I don'teven think it will top the first one in the US either), and I'll be happy to tell you "I told you so" this time next year.

As fot the finale factor, it's much stronger for HP, a series based on books which people nowadays have grown up with, and is the most successful movie franchise ever. This is also the end of the series, while TDKR is just the last Batman movie Nolan is directing (heck, up 'till you just mentioned it now, I wasn't even thinking of TDKR as a "finale", and I'm sure many others won't either). There will be other Batman movies released in the future, which will lessen the "finale effect" for the TDKR.

Haha,that's right.And that's why TDKR will do amazing numbers OS next year,foreign markets have just discovered Batman.Batman Begins did a poor $167M,and then TKD almost TRIPLED that,shows how much interest has grown over 3 years.

4 years after TDK,TDKR should at least increase $200M-$250M OS.

TDKR will be marketed as the last movie in the trilogy,and thats what counts for the casual crowd.Guys like you and me know that there are going to be more Batman movies,but it won't be anytime soon.

I would bet a damn finger that TDKR beats HP7-2.Damn freaking wizard



-Harry Potter to The Dark Knight: Avada Kedabra!!!

TDKR will do about 1.1-1.2 billion max imo. HP will go beyond 1.2 billion. HP is just insanely popular outside the US, unlike Batman. TDK had the highest grossing opening weekend here in Iceland though, before DHp2 released so TDKR will definitely be huge over here.



TDKR won't do as well as TDK in America because The Joker isn't there, the most iconic villain is gone.

Of course its Nolan so I expect a good film but I think it won't do as well

Overseas it will do better than TDK due to box office expansion thats taken place, however as its not in 3D I don't expect massive numbers either.

DH2 will go beyond 1.2 Million, falling short of ROTK's 1.3 Million

ROTK's box office performance hardly ever gets mentioned but its tremendous really, since 2003 its held onto 2nd and then 3rd place at the worldwide box office.
