Box Office Results · Year of 2011
Now with 2011 officially behind us lets look back at the most successful movies of the year. Despite this year being the lowest for box office receipts in 16 years, something has to be number one.
This year that honour went to the beloved Harry Potter and friends in their final instalment. ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’ took the top spot with a whopping $381M. Fans who have been watching Harry for the past 10 years certainly came out in big numbers to see the big final showdown between the boy wizard and “He-Who-Must–Not–Be-Named“.
One thing that is obvious by looking at the top ten flicks is that only two of them aren’t sequels. But those two are Marvel’s ‘Thor’ and ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, and it’s certainly not like these two characters haven’t appeared on the silver screen before.
Well, well, well… nothing new, exciting or original at the movies and a 16-year low, eh?? Interesting! Quite the coincidence!
Let’s see how 2012 shapes up with all its 3D re-releases of old movies!!
