Warner Bros set to break own global box-office record

MUMBAI: Warner Bros Pictures Group is set to reach global box-office industry record of $3.99bn for 2009. It thus surpassed its own previous industry mark of $3.66bn that it set in 2007.

According to its own projections, the studio‘s domestic gross will reach $2.13billion surpassing the industry record of $1.789billion set by the studio in 2008.

Warner Bros Pictures International is projected to reach $1.86bn year-end gross. This will mark the ninth consecutive billion-dollar year for both the domestic and international divisions.

In 2009, Warner Bros released nine films like Gran Torino, He‘s Just Not That Into You, Friday The 13th,Watchmen, 17 Again, The Hangover, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, The Final Destination, and Where The Wild Things Are. 

Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince was the key driver for the year, earning $632 million overseas and $302 million domestically. It was the biggest film of the year globally and ranks as the second highest Harry Potter release in North America and the third highest internationally.

Four other films crossed $100m internationally in 2009. They were Yes Man on $132m, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button on $205m, Gran Torino on $121m, and The Hangover- the highest R-rated comedy in history in North America and overseas - on $190m.
