Potter Madness Begins

The final installment in the Harry Potter franchise hits the big screen this week. Last night – Monday, July 11, 2011 – New York City’s Lincoln Center was the site of the U.S. premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. On the red carpet, Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter himself. Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley also made an appearance at the premiere too.

If history is any indication of how this eight flick will do, it will no doubt have a strong box office debut when it opens on Friday. The previous seven Harry Potter films have each earned at least $249 million at the domestic box office and $796 million worldwide. Altogether, this wizard franchise has pulled in over $2 billion in the United States and slightly more than $6 billion worldwide.
