'Harry Potter' and 'Twilight' series belongs to a different genre of films. 'Harry Potter' had a refreshing storyline for the kids and the kids got back to their reading habits. With the soaring popularity the production team of 'Harry Potter' has now split up final part into two to rake in the moolah. Critics are of the opinion that one movie could have been enough instead of splitting it up into two.
The box office reports and collections have another story to tell as the Potter series has made a great business surpassing even the 'Twilight' series. 'Harry Potter' broke all records in the opening day itself. 'Twilight' falls much behind the Potter series in spite of having the heartthrob of millions -Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
In case of the earlier movies of both the series, 'Eclipse' and 'New Moon' has captivated the audience more than the Potter series. The exception to the rule is in the case of 'Sorcerer's Stone' and 'Half-Blood Prince'.
A 'Twilight' movie is just made in about one third of the budget of any Potter movie (Chamber of Secrets was made on a low budget compared to other Potter movies).It"s interesting to note that 'Twilight' series has always managed to reap great dividends irrespective of its budget. According to Moviefone, 'Twilight' was far ahead than Potter in terms of adaptation from a novel. Twilight and Potter caters to two different kinds of audiences. Potter is for the young minds. On the other hand, Twilight series is solely for adults. So it would be quite unfair to compare the two.
