Holy magic-making moneymaker!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 has hit the $1 billion mark worldwide.

By last Thursday, the movie grossed $296 million domestically and $630 million overseas. With this weekend's box office numbers, the movie crossed the magical billion dollar mark, making it the 9th movie in history to do so.

The only movie to go past $2 billion was Avatar.

Don't worry, we have a feeling Potterheads will make sure it joins the $2 billion club very, very soon.

Are U surprised that it's made $1 billion so soon??

    Nah, I am surprised it took this long to reach 1 billion

    As much as I love Harry Potter it is not going to reach to $2 billion mark the vast majority of people saw it within about a week of its opening and now it will only be getting business from people seeing it a second time. Still $1 billion is hardly anything to sniff at it's the first Potter film to do it so the series is ending on a high.

    yeah Harry Potter!!!

    I agree with MntDew, I'm surprised it took this long. And I wouldn't be surprised if it hit the $2million mark. I know a few people who have seen it 5 times…. I've seen it three times already :P

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, BidsGet.com

    Re: Black Swan – That's exactly what people said about it reaching the 1 billion dollar mark. You have no idea just how popular Harry Potter is. After this, it's going to make its way to the cheap seats. More money.

    i love Harry Potter i do. i saw this opening week and won't rule out going again.

    but some of you don't know what you're talking about. this movie won't make $2 billion (if it does though i'll be very happy). only 1 movie has done it and i doubt any other movie will do it anytime soon (that includes Avatar 2 and 3)

    I donr understand what people likes abot this. I find Harry potter kind of boring.

    Re: Whassup_FOOL – No, I always thought it would reach the billion mark, actually because it is the final one people who wouldn't come out for say film 5 or 6 wanted to see how it ended. I just don't think it can do double what it has already especially when 99% of big blockbusters get nowhere close to $2 billion.

    Re: Whassup_FOOL – Yeah I just checked and only one film (Avatar) has got past $2 billion. DH will out-gross Return of the King but it won't touch Titanic and Avatar. And yeah I think I know how big Harry Potter is since I've been reading the books since 1998…

    Re: Black Swan – Harry Potter is currently the 3rd Highest Grossing film ever after less than a month. People are still seeing it despite what others think. 2 billion isn't that much of a stretch.
