BOX OFFICE: FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM Has Alread Earned $500 Million Worldwide

It may not have opened as big as the Harry Potter movies, but Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has already reached a major benchmark after less than two weeks of release worldwide...

It has been confirmed today that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has passed the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office. With $161 million in North America and $344 million overseas, the Harry Potter prequel is doing well, but it's current cume is still a far cry from the massive $1.34 billion made by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 when that reached theaters five years ago. 

Warner Bros.' domestic distribution president, Jeff Goldstein, isn't concerned though as he still sees big things on the horizon for the movie. "Anticipation grew exponentially in the weeks leading up to the release of ‘Fantastic Beasts,’ and now with the film in theaters we are seeing strong word of mouth and repeat attendance, which should carry the film through the holiday season and beyond."

With a budget of around $180 million and plans in place for four more Fantastic Beasts movies, the movie will need to make at little more to ensure it's a franchise which is here to say, but things are looking good! However, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is right around the corner, so that won't help it!
