Harry Potter may have beaten Voldemort, but he didn’t stand a chance against Dominic Toretto. Box Office Mojo reports that Furious 7 has surpassed the worldwide gross of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The seventh Fast & Furious film now stands at about $1.349 billion worldwide, while Hallows: Part 2 ended its run at $1.342 billion. The boy wizard is the latest to fall to Furious 7, following a certain ice queen.
These totals are, of course, unadjusted for inflation. When that’s taken into account, Deathly Hallows: Part 2 would still sit above Furious 7 for the time being—but the global ticket sales for the action film represents the incredible forward momentum Furious 7 has carried in the month since its release. Furious 7 became the biggest film at China’s box office, and will likely rank among the highest earners in the U.S. for 2015 when the year comes to a close.
Furious 7’s dominance at the box office will fade this weekend, however, when Avengers: Age of Ultron makes its bid for the crown. Furious 7 currently sits below the original The Avengers on the unadjusted worldwide chart. So it should prove interesting to watch where Avengers: Age of Ultron eventually ends up, and whether Marvel’s superhero team knows the rules of a street fight as they go up against Dom and the team.
