“Harry Potter” heading to IMAX screens in China


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Doesn’t “Harry Potter” have enough money? His vault at Gringots is bursting at the seams. His film became the second movie this year to cross the $1 billion mark worldwide. And he hasn’t even reached China … yet.

According to a release, Warner Bros. plans to release “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” on 26 IMAX screens in China tomorrow. David Yates’ final installment in the eight-picture fantasy series will be released day-and-date with its traditional 35mm rollout in China.

Not that the “Potter” films can do much better, from a financial standpoint. “Deathly Hallows” already is the highest-grossing film in the franchise, and is the only film to cross the $1 billion mark. Now it’s only increasing its lead over the closest competitor, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.”
