Box Office: ‘Potter’ Beats ‘Transformers’ to $1 Billion

Transformers: Dark of the Moon’s two-week head start couldn’t hold off Harry Potter’s record-breaking pace: Deathly Hallows Part 2 passed $1 billion worldwide (domestic plus foreign) on Sunday, while Transformers still has a few days left before it arrives at that coveted milestone.

Deathly Hallows Part 2 hit $1 billion on its 19th day in theaters, which tied Avatar’s record for fastest to reach that level. With a $1.008 billion total, Potter ranked eighth on all-time worldwide chart, ahead of The Dark Knight but behind Alice in Wonderland. With China opening next weekend, Potter’s poised to ultimately take third place from The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ($1.12 billion).
