Fantasy blockbusters such as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince push seasonal takings to more than $4bn.While many sectors of the US economy struggle with the most challenging conditions in decades, Hollywood is in the money. According to Variety, this summer's domestic box office gross was the industry's biggest ever, with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Up contributing to a total $4.17bn (£2.4bn) from US cinemagoers up to the end of August. The figure beats the previous record of $4.16bn in 2007, and is expected to increase by a further $100m or more over the forthcoming holiday weekend.
Fantasy blockbusters accounted for the lion's share of revenues, with income from the Transformers sequel alone nudging $400m. The sixth Harry Potter movie took $294m and Disney/Pixar's 3D animated feature Up, released in the UK next month, earned $289.6m. Star Trek and X-Men Origins: Wolverine added another $435m between them.’
