“Deathly Hallows – Part 2” hits $1 billion in ticket sales as of today!

While it comes as no surprise given how fast tickets have been selling since the July 15 opening, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 today will cross $1 billion in ticket sales.

It joins eight other films that have pulled in $1 billion including Avatar, Titanic, Toy Story 3, and The Lord of The Rings.

That also makes this film the top Potter earner ever.

Strong ticket sales are thanks to 3D tickets, Potter fans going for repeat viewings, and of course the fact that this is the last film in the series.
