Harry Potter Finale May Take New Moon and Eclipse Records

According to Entertainment Weekly, Part 2 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows may overtake he box office records set by New Moon:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows–Part 2 has already collected $25 million domestically from advance ticket sales, according to Variety. The majority of the sales have reportedly been for midnight screenings, giving Deathly Hallows a legitimate shot at beating the $30 million midnight record set last year by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The final Harry Potter film will also be aiming its wand at some other box-office milestones, such as the largest opening day (currently The Twilight Saga: New Moon with $72.7 million) and the biggest opening weekend (The Dark Knight with $158.4 million).”

Next Movie Summarizes the Best Movie Nominees for the 2011 MTV Movie Awards

Eclipse will probably pull this one out in our opinion. The strongest competition comes from the Harry Potter franchise, so it’s important to keep voting! Here’s what Next Movie had to say about Eclipse:

“Eclipse” earned $700 million at the worldwide box office, yet was ignored by the Oscars. Fie on you, Academy! Fie! Granted, Twi-Hards would probably have loved this movie no matter how good it was; but fortunately it was good, with thrilling fight scenes, comedic moments, two swoon-worthy romances and plenty to keep fans of both Team Edward and Team Jacob happy. (We don’t know about you, but we always sleep half-naked when we go camping.) The bar’s been set. Your move, “Breaking Dawn.”

Eclipse Is the Second Most Profitable Movie of 2010

Most Profitable Movies Released in 2010

There are other movies who brought in big box office dollars, but because they cost so much more to make. In other words they flopped or barely broke even. A lot of small budget movies raked in megaprofit when they landed in the top 100 films of the year. Two examples were from Summit Entertainment: Letters to Juliet and Remember Me

What’s interesting is to look at the box office totals for the above movies. Alice in Wonderland and Toy Story 3 are the only two that came in ahead of Eclipse. Harry Potter’s box office run has not yet closed out; however given it’s rate of intake it’s not likely to overtake Eclipse.

Twilight Saga Rocks Multiple Top Ten Lists

Best movie Soundtrack of 2010, Eclipse on Next Movie

soundrtrackcovere“Everybody likes to make fun of “Twilight” – adults, children, house pets – but the producers of the films threw a monkey wrench in the gears of the irony machine by stuffing the soundtrack to their latest effort full of awesome songs from ultra-cool indie bands. “Eclipse” is a who’s who of moody indie rock, featuring a lineup that would make Pitchfork’s brains explode: Beck, Bat For Lashes, Metric, Vampire Weekend, Muse, the Black Keys…the list goes on and on. Perhaps this all shouldn’t be surprising given that music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas made a name for herself turning television’s “The O.C.” into an avenue for indie rock exposure, but it’s still a very pleasant surprise to see the music from a “Twilight” film become the “Singles” soundtrack of the aughts.”

Top Movie Trailer of 2010, Eclipse, via  Google tracking

“Blockbuster ‘Twilight Eclipse’ has beaten ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’, ‘Iron Man 2’ and ‘A Team’ as the top most searched film trailer on google.

While the film didn’t have the enormous hype of Harry Potter, it was a favorite amongst internet users who search for trailers using google. This was despite the fact it received mixed reviews and was not as highly regarded as the previous outing of the franchise.”

Number Three Charity Auction of the Year, according to Tonic

“3. Meet Robert Pattinson on the set of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, to benefit the GO Campaign — $85,000.
The winner received the chance for four people total to experience first-hand the biggest pop culture phenomenon of the decade as they will spend a day on the set, including the chance to meet the film’s star Robert Pattinson!

This auction package included 2 nights in a Deluxe Executive Suite at the elite Four Season Hotel in Vancouver and VIP limousine service to and from the Breaking Dawn set provided by Star Limousine Services!”

New Moon was the third biggest VOD (video on demand) film for 2010.According to Variety who reported on Comcast’s results,

“The second most popular pic on VOD was “Couples Retreat,” followed by “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and “Hot Tub Time Machine.”

Coming in at No. 5 was “The Hurt Locker,” which made just $16.4 million in theatrical release. Though that Kathryn Bigelow film was released in 2009, VOD transactions were strong after its six Oscar wins in March.”

New Moon and Eclipse Still Hang on to Midnight Sales Record

It was widely predicted that the latest installment of the Harry Potter franchise would upset the records set by the two most recent Twilight films. However the results fell short of what was widely thought to be a shoe-in for Harry Potter to overtake New Moon. Most  industry blogs were divided 50/50 on whether it would overtake Eclipse. In the end, Harry Potter didn’t overtake either of them in midnight sales(midnight sales cover tickets sold midnight until circa 10:00am).

According to MarketWatch:

““Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I” made $24 million in its debut during the wee hours Friday, enough to pull into third place among films with midnight screenings, according to figures from box-office tracker Hollywood.com.

“Deathly Hallows” fell behind two films in the “Twilight” series. “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” still is tops with its $30 million-plus debut earlier this year on June 30. And “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” comes in second at $26.3 million for its Nov. 20, 2009 midnight release.”

Regardless of the midnight showing results, Harry Potter will undoubtedly be in the top ten films this year and in all likelihood make the top five. The franchise is also set to overtake Star Wars as the most successful film franchise at the box office. Also in fairness to the Potter chain, Eclipse opened at roughly 4,400 theaters opening day while Potter opened at roughly 4,100. (Stats via Box Office Mojo).

What will really be interesting is if Harry Potter can do two things: 1) break the $300,000,000 mark, something it has only done twice 2) beat the $317,575,550 benchmark set back in 2001 with the first Harry Potter movie. To overtake Eclipse in total sales, Harry Potter needs to come in at over $300,531,751 by the time it finishes its run.

Eclipse Hits Theaters in Wider Distribution Today: But Where Will it Land in 2010?

eclipsebill

Today Eclipse hits theatres in a wider distribution. It’s sort of a re-release since it’s hitting a broader area. Fandango is selling tickets to the re-release of Eclipse in celebration of Bella’s birthday! The link will help you find a theater near you, showtimes, and of course will let you order tickets!

As of Wednesday night, domestic sales of Eclipse are $298,859,646. That’s roughly 2 million more than the final domestic in theater sales of New Moon. As of right  now Eclipse is the number four film of the year behind Toy Story 3, Alice In Wonderland, and Iron Man 2.  It’s not very likely that Eclipse would overtake either of the top two this weekend. Toy Story 3 has earned over a whopping $400,000,000 and Alice in Wonderland has $334,191,110. On the other hand, Eclipse stands a decent chance at overtaking Iron Man 2 either by the end of this weekend or when it ends its in theater run some time in late November.

This re-release should solidify Eclipse as a top five film of the year putting it well ahead of Inception, currently in the number 5 position. The major challenge in the top five will come when the the first segment of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows releases by the end of the year. Eclipse shouldn’t get knocked out of the top five, but it will be interesting to see what the final rankings will be.

We’re betting on the following:  Toy Story, Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, Eclipse, Iron Man 2 being the final order. What do you think?
