Harry Potter Movies

The final Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is poised to break records and make millions, if not billions, once it hits theaters this weekend. I'm sure many have heard before that it's already one of the most successful film franchises in history, earning more morning than just about anything, but that makes sense considering there are a total of 8 movies spanning back to 2001. On Cinema Blend, they've whipped up an infographic titled Harry Potter Movies By The Numbers that looks at all the facts and figures regarding its $6 billion+ box office earnings. If you're not already in awe of Harry Potter, you will by the end of this!

Harry Potter Movies By The Numbers

These are some impressive numbers and I just thought it was a good infographic related to Harry Potter worth sharing this week. I also love some of the statistics (like that one about Matthew Lewis as Neville Longbottom) that show just how far this series has come, that an actor like that can make such a name for himself by sticking true to the character over so many years. I'm also amazed that Sorcerer's Stone is still the top earner. Where is the graph comparing earnings of all 8 movies? And also, can someone please tell me how anyone can play Quidditch without magical floating brooms and snitches? That doesn't make sense!

    The Quidditch thing is not true, there are many more than that.
  • Jericho
    and three out of four pirates movies and all of the LoTR movies make up the rest....

      No, just the two LoTR sequels.

    Shocked about Prisoner of Azkaban - always been my favourite movie but lowest grossing?

    I thought the worst was Goblet of Fire

      Ask any fan and I'm willing to bet they'd say its Goblet of Fire a well. Order was one of the best.

        The problem with Order was that it was the longest book, so they had to chop a lot of the content out to get it to fit in their 2 1/2 hour feature time frame.  Other than that, I think they did a pretty good job, considering they kept the somber tone and Harry's evolving relationships with the other characters, especially with Dumbledore.  I just loved the tension they were able to develop in those scenes where Harry was desperate for Dumbledore's help and was being ignored.  And I have to agree with you two on Goblet being the worst.

          Sorry folks, the Half-Blood Prince is the worst, by far. The cut most of the story for the actual Half-Blood Prince out for a crazy ho; the battle with Dumbledoor's army; and the funeral. Of all the numerous cuts in the meatier films why keep such an unimportant subplot like Lavender Brown?
          • JL
            Not to mention the bitty in the restaurant in the beginning.  I don't believe that was in the book.  Adding impertinent nonsense is not forgivable.  I may have to agree with you on Half-Blood, as soon as I watch these movies over again.

            I don't think Half-Blood Prince was the worst, but I do agree that they over did it with Lavender.  I also  agree with JL that the part with the girl at the beginning was silly, it was like they were trying to show that Harry was a player or something.  They could have cut all that crap out, and added the bit in the pensieve where we met Voldemort's biological family, sitting in their creepy house speaking Parseltongue.  Now THAT would have been cool.

    It just might be possible that Deathly Hallows pt.2, the shortest film in the series will become the highest grossing of the lot
    • Teacherkid
      Deathly Hallows Part II also has a 97% rating! So now THAT is the highest rated!

    Here is the comparison of the earnings of six of the films: http://boxofficemojo.com/showdowns/chart/?id=vs-harrypotter.htm

    I'm actually shocked...  that there are 13 of the Land Before Time movies.
  • Flbball23
    I'm not. A children dinosaur series... seriously you can't get to much better of an idea. The first film made 88.9 Million in 1988. That's some serious cash for that time and is considered a classic now.

    There is a lot more than four universities that have quidditch teams the number is more like 70-80.
