Box Office Report: 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' Continues Worldwide Sweep
The eighth installment of the beloved franchise ups its international cume to $355 million on Monday.
In the days following the opening of Warner Bros.' Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, the film shows no signs of slowing down.
The eighth and final film in the series has already smashed records internationally, raking in $312.3 million at the foreign box office over its opening. On Monday, the numbers increased by a staggering $41 million in 59 countries outside the U.S. and Canada.
To date, the international cume has reached $355 million.
In North America, the film boasted an impressive $18 million on Monday, bringing the domestic total to $187.2 million and worldwide cume to an overwhelming $542.3 million.
Deathly Hallows –Part 2 is obviously off to the best offshore start of any title in the 10-year Harry Potter franchise. That’s critical since the first seven Harry Potter titles grossed significantly higher amounts offshore than in the U.S. and Canada – of the total of $6.4 billion amassed worldwide, $4.4 billion came from foreign playoff.
Top overseas franchise earner to date is 2010’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, which grossed $659 million offshore, more than double its domestic take.
