With Harry Potter box office sales reaching a whopping $9,198,243,071 to date, will the latest instalment of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore help it to breach the $10 billion mark?
PartyCasino has taken a look into the spend behind the Harry Potter movies, including the Worldwide Box Office takings, noting that despite a 60% increase in production spend on Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the Worldwide Box Office takings amounted to under half of the final Harry Potter film. In fact, the last film in 2018, had the lowest opening weekend of all the previous movies in the series at just $62,163,104.
The highly anticipated release of Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore being only days away on 8th April and 15 April (US), is unlikely to come in under $200 million to produce. Will the latest instalment rekindle the wizarding wonder or is the magic truly dying for the franchise?
With a brand new Grindelwald, played by Mads Mikkelsen, there is hope for the franchise especially in the UK, with top 3 positions based on global Google search trends for both Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies.
Author and creator J.K. Rowling will likely cash in regardless of new movie releases and their success, already with a net worth estimated around $1 billion, by far higher than any Harry Potter star. Will the 25-year anniversary of the first Harry Potter book, break the spell and restore the magic to the series?
