'Harry Potter' Will Soon Become The Biggest Movie Franchise of All Time

With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 set to invade theaters this weekend in the hopes of taking home one or two box office records, Mr. Potter is also on his way to staking his claim as the biggest movie franchise of all time. As of right now, the Star Wars films are in the lead with $1.9 billion in sales, though Harry Potter and his $1.7 billion is hot on their galactic tail.

'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part1'

According to a story in USA Today, experts already feel as if Harry Potter will overtake Star Wars even before the final installment hits theaters this July. Considering the fact that each Potter installment has averaged about $285 million at the box office, it's not hard to see them grabbing the lead real soon.
 
Sure, you'll say that Potter had an extra film (7 to Star Wars' 6), that you need to take inflation into account, and that Avatar could easily beat both of them once more sequels come out. Yeah, I can see all that. But still, what these Potter films have been able to accomplish over the course of six (count 'em six!) films is incredibly impressive and unheard of these days.
 
So kudos to Mr. Potter, and make sure you grab your Deathly Hallow tickets now on Fandango before your local theater sells out. Do you think Harry Potter deserves the top spot as the biggest movie franchise of all time?
