FOTR Reaches 200 Million

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” continued its fantastic run at the box office, enjoying a three-peat atop the charts and becoming the sixth movie released in 2001 to soar past the $200 million mark. Business slipped a reasonable 41 percent to an estimated $23 million, on par with “Harry Potter’s” third weekend, elevating the $93 million three-hour epic’s 19-day total to $205.5 million. On its current pace, a final gross of $300 million is not out of the question.

By comparison, “Harry Potter” had $222.3 million by its 19th day of release and this weekend became the tenth movie in history and Warner Bros.’ first to cross the $300 million mark in raw grosses. The British boy wizard fell 44 percent from last weekend to an estimated $6.1 million, raising its tally to $300.6 million. Adjusted for ticket price inflation, though, “Potter” would reside at No. 67 on the all time list. [More]
