Fantastic Beasts 3 does not offer Harry Potter magic

In the US, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore won’t premiere until next week, but in several other countries, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Part II (2016) has already appeared on the silver screen.

This start can be described as very modest and not convincing enough in reality. David Yates’ film has appeared in 22 markets, according to Variety, and has grossed about $58 million. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald raised about $91 million after its first weekend, but had shown in 79 countries when it launched in 2018.

Germany ($9.4 million), Japan ($8.6 million) and the United Kingdom ($8.0 million) were particularly high. In China, where important Covid measures have been put in place once again, the film only reached $10 million.

Coming days in more countries
The good news is that the movie will premiere in France, Mexico, Italy, Brazil, South Korea and thus North America in the coming days. Incidentally, the previous two segments combined about 75 percent of out-of-state sales.

The $200 million prequel Harry Potter movie is sure to make around $450-500 million worldwide to be called a financial success right away. For WarnerMedia, an advantage is that the movie will be a huge banner for HBO Max.
