“Harry Potter,” “Inception” power Warner to industry-leading 2010 tallies

By Sean O’Connell Warner Bros. was the big winner at the 2010 box office, though as with the overall ticket-tracking figures, numbers were down when compared to 2009.

Movies like Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” and the next-to-last “Harry Potter” installment powered Warner to a $1.89 billion haul for 2010, making it the highest-grossing studio in town with 18.3 percent of the overall pie, according to THR.

Both “Inception” and “Harry Potter” approached $300M without passing the mark, with the former pulling in $292.5M and the latter nabbing $283M to date.

This is the third year that Warner has led its studio competition. In 2009, the studio pulled in $2.1 billion to lead all studios. It was just ahead of Paramount, which was powered by such films as “Iron Man 2” ($312.1M) and “Shrek Forever After” ($238.3M).

As was reported, this was the second consecutive year that the overall domestic box crossed $10 billion, and only the second year in Hollywood history that the mark has been passed. So while it is a victory for Hollywood, there has to be concern that the overall total was slightly less in 2010 over 2009.
