Deathly Hallows Part 2 Conjured Php155 M in RP Box Office in Just 4 Days



We got an official announcement.  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 just hit a whooping Php 155M in Philippine Box Office in just four days and crowned as the highest record breaking Warner Bros. title beating "Superman Returns", "Harry Potter and Order of the Phoenix" and "Green Lantern".  Here is the official statement from Warner Bros.

MANILA, July 18, 2011 – Till the end, Filipino fans of “Harry Potter” showered the boy wizard with affection, sending him off in a grand, sensational way.

With an astounding nationwide box office total of P155 million in 4 days, Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” shattered multiple box office records in a history-making opening weekend (July 14 to 17). The announcement was made today by Warner Bros. (F.E.), Inc. General Manager, Francis Soliven.

Grossing P117.06-M alone in Metro Manila, the penultimate “Harry Potter” film obliterated the following records: biggest opening weekend all-time for a Warner Bros. title (breaking past “Superman Returns”), best opening weekend ever in the “Harry Potter” franchise (surpassing “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”) and highest opening weekend of the year for a Warner title (clobbering “Green Lantern”).


Its IMAX receipts of P14.287-M also broke the all-time biggest IMAX opening weekend record (beating “Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon” at P12.15-M).

The film’s outstanding performance in the Philippines mirrored its phenomenal US bow. “Deathly Hallows – Part 2” earned a stunning $168.5 million at the American box office, which not only is the biggest Harry Potter opening weekend but also broke the industry’s opening weekend record, including holiday weekends. Among the other records broken were single-day box office (Friday at $92.1 million), Friday box office, and opening day box office.

With the film opening day-and-date in 59 territories, the international box office take was a staggering $307 million, making it the biggest international weekend of all time. Led by record-breaking grosses in the UK ($36.6 million) and Australia ($26.7 million), all markets have performed exceedingly well, including Germany ($25.7 million), France ($23.9 million) and Japan ($21.5 million).

Globally, it also broke the IMAX opening weekend record with a worldwide gross of $23.5 million, which includes setting a new record in North America with $15.5 million.


Back in the Philippines, the following cinemas posted the best box office receipts: SM Mall of Asia (P13.14-M including IMAX), SM North EDSA (P10.35-M including IMAX), Trinoma (P8.30-M), SM Megamall (P6.22-M), SM Cebu (P5.38-M including IMAX), Glorietta 4 (P5.36-M), Gateway Cineplex (P4.48-M), Power Plant (P4.16-M), Greenbelt 3 (P3.83-M) and SM Southmall (P3.70-M including IMAX).

Not to be outdone are Eastwood (P3.37-M), Newport (P3.31-M), Alabang Town Center (P3.26-M), Shang Cineplex (P3.03-M), Robinsons Ermita (P2.94-M), Robinsons Galleria (P2.67-M), SM Fairview (P2.48-M), Market Market (P2.47-M), SM San Lazaro (P2.45-M) and Ayala Cebu (P2.26-M).

To be honest I'm not a bit surprised.  The series is coming to an end and it is already expected that many people even non Potter fans will try to see this very last film on the franchise.  Then good feedback from critics also came thus bringing the interest towards this film up to another level. True enough as one of those who already saw it, this movie do live up with the promise of a triumphant end.


Now playing on IMAX 3D, Digital 3D and 2D conventional cinemas, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
