Warners at $1 billion mark

Studio breaks personal record in domestic grosses

Warner Bros. has joined Paramount in hitting the $1 billion mark in domestic grosses this year.

Studio made the announcement Sunday after “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” grossed $159.7 million in its first five days. Warners said that reaching the $1 billion mark in 192 days is a record for the studio.

Paramount reached the milestone July 8.

Warner Bros. noted that seven of its films have led a weekend this year. The others are “17 Again,” “Friday the 13th,” “Gran Torino,” “The Hangover,” “He’s Just Not That Into You” and “Watchmen.”

Warners said it’s hit the $1 billion domestic mark in 10 of the past 11 years and is the only studio to do so for nine consecutive years. The studio’s “The Hangover” has become the highest-grossing R-rated comedy ever at the domestic box office, with more than $235 million, breaking a record held by “Beverly Hills Cop” for 25 years.
