No, it isn't the title of the next Fantastic Beasts movie, but how much the movie has managed to bring in globally... $800M!
Continuing to generate box office magic, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” has crossed the $800 million mark at the worldwide box office. The announcement was made today by Sue Kroll, President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
The acclaimed film—set in a new era in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, decades before Harry Potter and half a world away—is the Studio’s top-grossing film internationally for 2016. In addition, “Fantastic Beasts” just earned five BAFTA Award nominations: for Outstanding British Film, Best Production Design, Best Costume Design, Best Sound, and Best Special Visual Effects.
In her announcement, Kroll stated, “Returning to the Wizarding world in ‘Fantastic Beasts’ was a labor of love for all of us, and it has been a privilege to watch audiences around the world embrace a new cast of characters in this world created by the incomparable J.K. Rowling. This is an extraordinary milestone for the first film in our new franchise and speaks to the remarkable talents of the cast and filmmakers who worked so hard to bring it to the screen. Congratulations to them, as well as to the Warner Bros. marketing and distribution teams on this great success.”
