Towers Breaks Fellowship’s US Record

February 2, 2003 at 5:20 am by Demosthenes  - 

In Box Office news, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers has finally passed the US mark set by its predecessor Fellowship of the Ring.

In the US all-time moneylists, Towers just leapfrogged Fellowship to nab 10th spot and push toward Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 9th position. Towers now has amassed a US$315 million box office in just 44 days compared to the US$313 million that Fellowship took last year.

Outside the US, Towers is yet to overhaul Fellowship. But it only US$120 million in arrears. Box Office mojo reports that as at 31/1, Towers had grossed an enormous US$423.1 million, with the Japanese release still due to occur. Towers will release in Japan on February 22.
