Harry Potter To Dominate Star Wars!

harry potter to beat out star wars

You better start making some more Star Wars movies, George Lucas!

According to box office analysts, Harry Potter will almost definitely become the highest-grossing film franchise of all time after Parts 1 and 2 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows are released.

Here's what Box Office Mojo president Brandon Gray had to say about it:

"This is one of the greatest box office franchises in movie history. It's phenomenal they could maintain this level of business six movies in. That's nearly unheard of."

In total, the Star Wars films have made $1.9 billion domestically, but Harry Potter is at $1.7 billion already AND it has two more films on the way!

Looks like your record, much like the Death Star, is about to be destroyed, Star Wars.

Do U think Harry Potter deserves to dethrone Star Wars?

    Harry Potter has two more movies, that's why.
    If you look at it now that both franchise are at 6 movies, star wars won.



  2. 2

    of course harry potter desrves it! theres nothing better than harry potter, some people might make fun of him ut they still go to the movies to watch it



  3. 3

    Star Wars blows so yes HP deserves the top spot. What about James Bond though?



  4. 4

    to me, star wars will always be the winner.



  5. 5

    Harry Potter deserves it !!!
    All the Harry Potter movies are perfect.
    I can watch them over and over again .I never get bored of them or lose interest.
    All the filthy mudbloods can suck it !

    ever hear of something called inflation perez?



  7. 7

    well ALL the "Harry Potter" m ovies are good and so far the ONLY good "Star Wars" movie was the original one…I'd say "Star Wars" had been damn lucky to do as well as it has done!



  8. 8

    star wars is retarded. hp all the way



  9. 9

    If you adjusted for inflation, Star Wars really dominates.



  10. 10

    The harry potter books are legit but honestly star wars movies are better. When the first star wars movies were in theaters it probably would cost like 2 dollars to see a movie and now its 10 thats why harry potter is making more money



  11. 11

    While I think inflation is a valid point. Here are two you may not have thought of: 1. When Stars Wars came out, how many other movie options were there? How many other movie franchises were there? Not nearly as many as there are today. To win over that many people when movies and movie franchises are a dime a dozen, I think that says something! And 2. When the majority of the Star Wars movies came out, you couldn't get ahold of a copy of the movie from a stand on a street corner in any major city and you couldn't illegally watch a copy of the movie on the internet either. If you wanted to see the movie, you actually had to go to theatre or video store and purchase it! I think both are great movie franchises, but accurately judging one against the other, is more than a simple matter of how much money was made or how many people legally watch the movie…

    no George, please don't make anymore Star Wars movies! you almost ruined them whole franchise with the pre-quels.

    as for HP…AGH SO EXCITED! i have tickets for a matinee tomorrow and can't wait!



  13. 13

    star wars (originals) are my fav movies of all time.. but harry potter def deserves it its a great bunch of movies



  14. 14

    Ya sure. Why not? H.P. is current.



  15. 15

    Wait ’til Star Wars comes out in 3D ^^



  16. 16

    they´re both great franchises…I actually can´t decide which one is better



  17. 17

    Since Star Wars did it without the mega-millions budget (the originals were made much cheaper), did it with only 6 movies (Harry has 8, and didn't make it with the first 6), aaaand the adjustment of modern movie price inflation, Star Wars still wins. Harry's movies are very good, but they still can't top the first and best: Star Wars.



  18. 18

    Fuck yes! Star Wars had its time! Its not to say one is better than the other. Its just that Harry Potter fans are part of a completely different generation than Star Wars fans. I mean the first Star Wars movie came out in 1977!!! The first Harry Potter movie came out in 2001… HP is just a bit more modern, a bit more relevant to todays youth.



  19. 19

    Never really been interested in Stars Wars. Harry Potter is great though. But it really shouldn't have to be a competition between the two. I mean, they're obviously both great movie franchises.



  20. 20

    Def no.. SW is epic



  21. 21

    Even if you take inflation into account and the number of movies in each franchise, the original Star Wars Three have constantly been re-released in movie theatres. For example Star Wars IV A New Hope was re-released in 78, 79, 81, 82 and in 1997 when Lucas decided to start capitalising again on its popularity before releasing Star Wars I, II and III. So lets just say that cancels out inflation and HP is going to win!



  22. 22

    Straight cash - HP wins.

    Adjusted for inflation, Star Wars wins hands down.

    Perez shows once again he's still a tool…



  23. 23

    Hells yes! Long live&love HP!!!!!!!!!

  26. 26

  27. 27
