Variety on Eight Harry Potter Films: Possibly Grossing 7 Billion in Worldwide Box Office

Here is an eye opening number for you: Variety has a new article online listing the upcoming blockbusters in Warner Bros lineup for the next four years, with the piece reading "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2," directed by Yates and starring Radcliffe, Watson and Grint. Opening July 15, 2011. The eight films will probably win up grossing somewhere around $7 billion in worldwide box office."

The industry magazine also has a second article online where it notes WB's continued investment in the Harry Potter franchise, mentioning the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park currently under construction in Orlando, Florida. The 20-acre venture will feature a slew of rides, restaurants and attractions based on the books and films, including a 150-foot recreation of Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmeade Village. Rides will feature cast members from the pics." Readers will recall of course that actress Emma Watson recently confirmed that she filmed a piece to be used as part of one ride for certain.

Finally in an odd related note, on Friday, Harry Potter producers David Heyman and David Barron, along with director David Yates were the celebrity guests to ring the closing bell on Wall Street; photos here in our galleries.

I am sure that all eight movies(if you count Deathly as two) will make more than Variety’s guess. I am glad for Jo, because she will be evn richer, and she does a lot for charity. I can hardly wiat to see Half Blood Prince!

I think the box office gross could be higher than 7 billion given that. . .
-movies tend to historically make more at the box office in recessions
-there will be huge hype surrounding the last two films
-pre-sales numbers coming in for HBP are looking very good and the film is getting fairly good reviews
-most of the actors in the series are getting better as time the films go on
