The final “Harry Potter” may not have had the magic to stay No. 1 at the domestic box office past its first week. But worldwide, the film has now crossed the $1 billion mark, a feat only eight other films have accomplished.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” reached the monetary pinnacle in 19 days, tying “Avatar’s” record for the speediest arrival to that point, according to Box Office Mojo. “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” is expected to join the $1 billion club in the near future.
While the film continues to bring in the dollars at the box office, J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore site opened Sunday to those lucky enough to nab an early registration. For those lacking luck but possessing extra cash, there are several e-Bay auctions for Pottermore accounts going for around $100.
