New York, (ANI): The Harry Potter film series seems set to topple James Bond movies as top-grossing franchise in box office history.
The last five Harry Potter films are said to have raked in a total of 4.48 dollars billion around the globe, while the James Bond movies stand at 5 billion dollars over the course of 22 films.
According to Variety.com, the Harry Potter series is expected to overtake the British spy thrillers by the end of this month, after the latest film in the former series hits the theatres on July 15, reports the New York Daily News.
Rick Butler, the Chief Operating Officer of Fandango, said: "It's our fastest ticket-seller since The Dark Knight, and Harry may eventually outpace Batman in advance ticket sales."
