"Deathly Hallows" Smashes Records, Rakes in P102-M in 4 Days

MANILA, Nov. 22 – It's Pottermania all over again in the Philippines as Warner Bros.' “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” shattered records and created box-office magic!

The seventh Potter film made history by debuting with a death-defying P102-M nationwide for the Nov 18-21 frame, this according to Francis Soliven, general manager of Warner Bros. (F.E.), Inc. which distributed the film.

Its four-day Metro Manila gross of P75.6-million represents the year’s most successful opening weekend for a Warner Bros. title, beating April’s mythological blockbuster “Clash of the Titans.”

Rolling out in more than 100 screens across the country, “Deathly Hallows” posted magical openings in the following Top 20 cinemas: SM Mall of Asia (P8.13-M), SM North EDSA (P6.32-M), Trinoma (P5.98-M), Glorietta 4 (P3.97-M), Gateway Cineplex (P3.81-M), SM Megamall (P3.73-M), SM Cebu (P3.58-M), Greenbelt 3 (P2.96-M), Power Plant (P2.93-M) and Eastwood (P2.57-M).

Also showing impressive sales are Shang Cineplex (P2.45-M), Ayala Cebu (P2.22-M), Robinsons Ermita (P2.13-M), Alabang Town Center (P2.12-M), Robinsons Galleria (P1.91-M), Theatremall (P1.73-M), Market Market (P1.62-M), Festival (P1.58-M), SM San Lazaro (P1.52-M) and SM Fairview (P1.44-M).

Internationally, “Hallows – Part 1” soared to the top of the global box office in its opening weekend, earning a staggering $330.1 million dollars worldwide, encompassing $125.1 million in the US and $205 million overseas.

The North American box office numbers shattered the franchise’s previous opening weekend record—held by “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” at $102.6 million—surpassing it by an astounding 23%.

Worldwide, the opening weekend for “Hallows” ranks as one of the highest of all time, which is especially impressive for a non-holiday weekend.

With the success of its first six of seven titles, the Harry Potter series had already achieved the distinction of being the top-grossing film franchise of all time, reaching a combined worldwide gross of $5.4 billion. The numbers for “Deathly Hallows – Part 1,” as well as the anticipation for “Part 2,” opening on July 15, 2011, should ensure its place in film history for years to come.

In “Part 1,” Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” is still showing across the Philippines.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Teaser Poster Revealed

2010-07-05, 22:31 by lianne

Following the release of the teaser trailer (Which you can watch/download here) last Tuesday, June 28, Warner Bros. revealed the official teaser poster for the 2-part movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.



Official Synopsis

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is a much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts.

Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort…alive.

Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale—the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.

Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “the Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is directed by David Yates, who also helmed the blockbusters “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” David Heyman, the producer of all of the Harry Potter films, produced the film, together with David Barron. Screenwriter Steve Kloves adapted the screenplay, based on the book by J.K. Rowling. Lionel Wigram is the executive producer.

Heading the cast, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reprise their roles as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

The film’s ensemble cast also includes Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Tom Felton, Ralph Fiennes, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Griffiths, John Hurt, Jason Isaacs, Helen McCrory, Bill Nighy, Miranda Richardson, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Timothy Spall, Imelda Staunton, David Thewlis, Julie Walters and Bonnie Wright.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Heyday Films production, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” which marks the latest installment in the most successful film franchise of all time. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” will be released worldwide starting November 19, 2010, and “Part 2” starting July 15, 2011.
