One of the biggest events in the film industry at present is the great success of The Avengers. Since its debut in May 5th, it has received over 200 million dollars in box office and has created a new record, making its former keeper Harry Potter's 168 million dollars a gone history.
Two million dollars in box office are the final achievements of some films like Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, which is named another version of Harry Potter. However, The Avengers has managed it in two days and hence becomes the biggest menace to Avatar, the film with the highest box office recipients.
Every movie of Harry Potter series is a guarantee to the box office performance and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 as the last movie in this series has received unprecedented attention. How come The Avengers can beat it so easily? Here the post will show you factors that help The Avengers to beat Harry Potter.
1. The plot
As a superhero movie, the plot of The Avengers is known to all: bad guys appear and superheroes manage to beat them. To this extent, Harry Potter should have beaten The Avengers easily in terms of the plot because you cannot trace the plot of a new Harry Potter movie that easily.
However, Rotten Tomatoes has given them almost the same fresh rate which means that The Avengers is also excellent in plot. More importantly, Harry Potter movies are directed based on the novel so you can get to know the plot before the movie. To me, I had already known the fate of Harry before I watched that movie. This makes Harry Potter less attractive than The Avengers in plot.
2. The influence
One must admit that the influence of Harry Potter is beyond comparison among youth. However, the failure of Harry Potter has proved to us that a magician is not powerful enough to beat five superheroes.
Superhero movie is always popular in America. Movies like Spiderman, Superman and Iron Man can always guarantee box office performance. Harry can beat any single of them, but once they have united, Harry has to accept his failure. More importantly, those heroes can not only attract youth but also those middle-age people who were fond of those superheroes in their childhood.
3. The arrangement
In terms of arrangement, Harry Potter has successfully kept audience in suspense by dividing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into two parts. It worked and lead to the great success of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. However, The Avengers has done better in this field.
So let's have general view at those superheroes in the movie: Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Hawkeye. If you have no idea about any of them, you can know them via four movies. Among those heroes, movies on Thor and Captain America were made in 2011.
This can be viewed as steps to pave the way for The Avengers. More importantly, you can trace the association between The Avengers and those two movies. Captain America wakes up in the end because he needs to cooperate with other heroes in The Avengers. Loki as an evil image in Thor successfully joins in the evil side of The Avengers. We are all looking forward to the cooperation between those superheroes.
Due to those three factors, The Avengers has successfully broken the record made by Harry Potter. If you want to make a good comparison between those two movies, you may watch The Avengers in the cinema and convert the DVD of Harry Potter to mp4 files for The new iPad with DVD Ripper.
