You know that little franchise about a secret agent? I think it’s called…James Bond or something? Well, Harry Potter is basically kicking his ass, wizard style! Here’s the latest statistics:
The past five “Harry Potter” movies have grossed a total of $4.48 billion worldwide at the box office. The James Bond movies come in at $5 billion over the course of 22 films, starting with “Dr. No” in 1962.
But Wednesday night’s witching-hour Potter screenings will put it on the road to the top of the box office pile. The “Harry Potter” franchise is expected to surpass the British spy thrillers by the end of July.
Potter. Harry Potter. Shaken, not stirred.
