Who said Harry Potter is the past? Fantastic Beast has roared into the future with a Huge Worldwide opening of $218 Million!!!!!
The Harry Potter franchise, aka the boy who lived, is showing a lot of kick for it's age. It grossed $75 million domestic & $143 million internationally. While some reviews were mixed it blew past the competition. In the end the battle of magicians was not even close. Dr Strange, after a good run of a couple of weeks, saw its magic taken over by Fantastic Beast. It grossed $17 million dollars. Next week Disney will seek to recapture its box office crown with the animated film, Moana. Can Fantastic Beast devour this challenge. Time will tell.
