“Potter” helps Warner Bros. shatter domestic, foreign box office records in 2010

MTV Movies Blog reported earlier this evening that Warner Bros. broke box office records in 2010, thanks in large part to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1.

Warner Bros. made $4.81 billion worldwide this past year and $2.93 billion in international tickets, both setting new industry records. It grossed $1.88 billion domestically.
