MANILA, Philippines - Continuing to make box-office magic, Warner Bros. Pictures’ Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 has now become the top-grossing release of 2011 in all categories: domestic box-office, international box-office and worldwide box-office. The announcement was made by Warner Bros. Pictures president of Domestic Distribution, Dan Fellman, and president of International Distribution, Veronika Kwan-Rubinek.

The last installment of the blockbuster motion picture franchise has broken numerous box-office records around the world in just under a month since its July opening. As of Aug. 8, the film had earned $344.8M domestically and $801.5M internationally, for an astounding worldwide box-office gross of $1.146B, making Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 the third-highest-grossing film worldwide of all time.

Veronika Kwan-Rubinek stated, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 can truly be called a global phenomenon. The filmmakers and cast, who dedicated their talents to the success of these films for over a decade, share in this piece of cinema history. We congratulate and thank them all.”

Dan Fellman said, “This is another incredible milestone for the last chapter of this historic film series, and for the Harry Potter franchise as a whole. In a crowded and very competitive summer, it is a tribute to both the film and the people behind it that moviegoers are still turning out to enjoy it — whether for the first time or for a repeat viewing.”

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 is the first Harry Potter film to be released in both 3D and 2D. The film is being distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
