Theater Counts: Circle Plays In 3163 Locations; Guardians Coming To 4200 Theaters Next Week
April comes to end with two wide releases that have modest ambitions at the box office. The Circle opens in 3,163 theaters for STX Entertainment, who will be happy if it beats The Bye Bye Mans $13.5 million opening weekend and becomes their second-best opening to date . Speaking of records, The Circle holds a very unusual oneMore…
Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2
The final movie in the initial Harry Potter franchise came in 2011 as Harry Potter, and his friends joined forces with the wizards that had survived the Death Eaters to this point. It was the Battle of Hogwarts, and everyone gathered to take on the villains and save their school.
Video On Demand And Streaming
The movie was made available on Video on Demand and for streaming in 2009, but it is not widely available anymore. However, it seems that you could still rent the Sorcerers Stone Extended Version on Amazon, but the Chamber of Secrets is unavailable. On Amazon UK it is possible to buy and rent both extended versions.

Weekend Estimates: Ralph Slips Still Strong Hannah Tops Expectations Still Soft
Ralph Breaks the Internet will retain top spot on the weekend box office chart with an estimated $25.8 million for a two-week total of $119.3 million. Granted, this is lower than we predicted, but not so much lower than anyone at Disney should be panicking. Internationally, the film added an estimated $33.7 million in 27 markets, lifting its international total to $87.7 million after two weeks of release. Its only major market opening of the weekend was the U.K. where it reportedly earned $5.2 million. This is less than Wreck-It Ralph opened with, but that film debuted during the school holidays, so it got a boost. Ralph Breaks the Internet should have longer than average legs thanks to Christmas, but I dont think it will match its predecessor in this market. More…
Harry Potter Movies In Chronological Order Of Events
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Set in 1926, roughly seven decades prior to Harry Potter beginning his education at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the first Fantastic Beasts movie focuses on the New York adventures of Newt Scamander , a British wizard and Ministry of Magic employee who finds himself embroiled in an insidious scheme involving the Magical Congress of the United States and a powerful wizard named Gellert Grindelwald , who believes wizards should reign over non-magical humans.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
A few months after the events of the first Fantastic Beasts, Newt is back in England, but hes soon tasked by the by Albus Dumbledore , who will one day look over Harry as the Headmaster of Hogwarts, to track down Credence Barebone , a troubled young wizard who is also being sought out by a recently escaped Grindelwald. In addition to Dumbledore, The Crimes of Grindelwald introduces other characters who will later play a significant role in the Harry Potter films, including a young Minerva McGonagall and Nagini, a circus performer whose blood curse will permanently transform her into a giant snake.

Home Market Releases For November 7 2017
It is not a particularly strong week on the home market. Cars 3 is the biggest new release, but it is far from the best. There were not a lot of contenders for Pick of the Week. The Philadelphia Story and Your Name were the two best with the latter coming out on top and its Blu-ray Combo Pack is the Pick of the Week. More…
Weekend Prediction: Is Grindelwald Committing Crimes Against The Harry Potter Franchise
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the latest installment in the Harry Potter franchise, but sadly, its reviews are, by far, the worst in the franchise. It should still have no trouble earning first place and will very likely break even just on its international numbers, but this is still troubling for its future. The second biggest release of the week is Instant Family and its reviews are good, but not great. They are certainly fine for a family comedy. Widows is the best-reviewed new release, but its buzz is quiet enough that it will barely finish in the top five. Meanwhile, A Private War is expanding nationwide and that could help it earn a spot in the top ten, but I wouldnt bet on it. This weekend last year, Justice League opened with $93.84 million, while Wonder debuted in second place with $27.55 million. Add in The Stars $9.81 million opening and the three wide releases pulled in $130 million. Theres no way the new releases this year will match that and 2018 will likely lose in the year-over-year comparison. More…

Analysis: Why Havent There Been Fifty Shades Of Grey Copycats
This weekend the Fifty Shades franchise is expected to surpass $1 billion in total worldwide box office with the release of the final installment, Fifty Shades Freed. All that income comes from films with an estimated combined budget for all three films of $150 million. The last time Hollywood saw this kind of success with an erotic drama/thriller, it created an entire subgenre that ate its way all through the 90s. Yet, after this year, it seems Valentines Day weekend will be left without a Fifty Shades replacement. So why the hesitancy from Hollywood to step up to the challenge this time?
Harry Potter Movies To Get Extended Edition Re
I’ve always wished that Warner Bros had filmed extended editions of the Harry Potter films, in the same vein as Peter Jackson filmed the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Of course, anyone who knows the many differences between the books and the released films knows that it really wouldn’t have been possible. To squeeze the most important plot points into the films, scenes, characters and information have been combined in a way that sometimes eliminate the wonderful side stories that we loved from the novels.
Over the course of the series, there have been many scenes, sequences and moments that were filmed but ended up on the cutting room floor. And it appears that Warner Bros is hoping to squeeze a bit more money out of the very popular wizard franchise by releasing extended editions of all the Harry Potter films.
RopeofSilicon was the first to notice a listing in the latest MPAA Rating Bulletin for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone which earned the same PG rating, for the same reasons as te theatrical release . Ropes contacted Warner Bros Home Video about the mention, and they confirmed that “Although we’ve not announced , all Harry Potter films are being planned to get special upcoming releases!”
Will the new extended editions be released exclusively on Blu-Ray? DVD? Will the get a theatrical re-release? We have no idea as no further details were mentioned.

Which Harry Potter Film Is The Shortest
Contrary to the last response, the shortest Harry Potter movie is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 with a length of 2 hours and 10 minutes. However, both Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban come close with a length of 2 hours and 22 minutes.
Home Market Releases For March 28th 2017
Its a good week for Pick of the Week contenders, as there are seven such releases on this weeks list. Unfortunately, none of them really scream out as The Pick of the Week. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is by far the biggest, but it is only out on Video on Demand right now, while Hidden Figures is the best, but again, it is only on VOD this week. There are also a couple of busted Oscar-bait films, Archer: Season Seven is only getting a DVD release, while the previous seasons came out on Blu-ray. In the end, I went with Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXVIII, partially to celebrate the return of the show. More…
Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoneix
Though Harry Potter and the order of the Phoneix is the longest book in the series, it is actually one of the shortest films amongst the Harry Potter movies. With a run time of only 2 hours and 22 minutes, many fans were disappointed that so many details from this book, in particular, were left out of the movie.
Daily Box Office: Ralph Is Breaking Record Books
Its Thanksgiving long weekend, which means many studios are closed and are not reporting official numbers. However, one of the studios that is reporting numbers is Disney and they are reporting record-breaking numbers. Ralph Breaks the Internet earned $18.5 million on Wednesday, which is significantly more than either Coco or Moana managed the previous two years. In fact, this is more than Frozen managed during its record-breaking wide expansion back in 2013. This films reviews are great and it earned an A minus from CinemaScore, so it should have good legs and could top Frozens $93.59 million five-day opening. In fact, some studios think it has a real chance of $100 million during its five-day opening. Im not that bullish, but even if it only earns $90 million over five-days, it will still be a monster hit and way more than we predicted. More…

Contest: Game Of Chance
There are three wide releases, but only two of them have any chance of becoming more than a midlevel hit. Free Birds is a digitally animated family film that has a very timely release, but it is also a second-tier CG animated film. Ender’s Game is a $110 million film based on a book aimed at young adults. It is yet another film trying to tap into the vacuum left behind by Harry Potter. I don’t think either of them will be big hits, but one of them has to be the target film. I think Free Birds will have better legs, but that Ender’s Game will have a better opening. As such, it is the target film for this week’s box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for Ender’s Game. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film’s opening 3-day weekend box office , regardless if they go over or not, will win a copy of The Conjuring on Blu-ray Combo Pack.

“Deathly Hallows – Part 1” is the set-up for the triumphant finale in “Part 2,” and yet, Yates managed to keep audiences entertained in a movie that could have been pretty boring.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part : $125 Million
For the final two movies in the entire series, Warner Bros made the bold decision to split the last book into two. Each blockbuster was given a budget of $125m as a result and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 did a good job at setting the stage for Harrys dramatic final showdown with Lord Voldemort and his repulsive Death Eaters.
It was popular, too. It made $960,666,490 at the box office worldwide with only two Potter movies managing more. And, speaking of that
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald
The final movie so far in the Harry Potter world hit theaters in 2018. This was the second movie in the;Fantastic Beasts series. While Newt Scamander was still the main protagonist, there was a lot here to set up a battle mentioned in the original Harry Potter movies between Albus Dumbledore and his greatest rival, Gellert Grindelwald.

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire Didn’t Wow Fans As Much As The Other Films
Audience score: 74%
“Goblet of Fire” is the fourth installment in the “Harry Potter” series.
Although some complained that it felt “episodic,” or like a long “teaser” for the fifth film, others thought it did a fine job ushering in the final chapters of the series.
“A very solid movie in the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise. While it may not have been as good as the third, this is the first movie where you get the sense that these characters have matured, and are no longer the same as when we first met them,” audience reviewer Aiden S. wrote.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald Is The Lowest
Audience score: 54%
Audiences felt the sequel to 2016’s “Fantastic Beasts” left a lot to be desired.
Many fans felt like they;didn’t care about the new characters introduced in the “Fantastic Beasts” universe, even though they really felt for the ones in the “Harry Potter” movies.;
“I had my hopes up for ‘Crimes of Grindelwald’ thinking it would actually expand the Potterverse in a new and intriguing way but like it’s predecessor, is full of plot fluff,” audience reviewer Anna R. wrote. “A lot of this new information isn’t all that important or engaging. I find myself bored by most of these new characters and their stories.”

Weekend Estimates: Coco Gives Disney Another Thanksgiving Win
Coco will easily top the box office chart this Thanksgiving weekend, with Disney projecting a $71 million 5-day opening, including $49 million from Friday to Sunday. Thats the fourth-best Thanksgiving opening of all time, behind Frozen , Moana , and Toy Story 2 . In all, Disney lays claim to 10 of the top 11 opening weekends over this holiday period, although, to be fair, the Hunger Games and Harry Potter franchises both claim several spots in the higher reaches of the Thanksgiving weekend record chart, but were just playing in their second weekend, rather than opening.
Nit-picking aside, its a great weekend for Coco.More…
The Rest Of The Harry Potter Series
The remaining movies from the series actually dont have extended versions, at least not officially. The extended versions of the first two movies were released with the Wizarding Collection, but there were no extended versions of the rest of the franchise.
However, there is a bunch of deleted scenes from the theatrical versions that were a topic of discussion among fans for many years. Most of these scenes according to fans would have made the movies much better, especially when it comes to the last movie.
There are many different scenes fans want to see released in the extended versions but there is a small number that gets mentioned any time the extended versions are mentioned.
The first one and perhaps the best-known one is Draco ultimately switching sides in the last move. Allegedly, the extended versions would feature Draco running across the Hogwarts yard once Harry reveals himself as alive and throws him his own wand.;
A lot of fans wanted to see this scene featured since it serves as a good closure to Dracos are over the course of the series as well as make the epilogue of the story make more sense.
Another fan-favorite among the deleted scenes is the one from the last movie where Harry says goodbye to his cousin and his parents before they move away from their home.
