‘Lord of the Rings’ Could Become the Top Film Franchise of All Time

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

With today’s release of “The Hobbit,” “The Lord of the Rings” franchise is on the fast track to become the top-earning film franchise in history.

The franchise currently ranks ninth, just behind “Twilight.” It only needs to bring in $310 million more to take over the “Twilight” spot, which it should be able to do with ease. Prior to the release of “The Hobbit,” the franchise has earned $2.91 billion.

The top-earning franchise is “Harry Potter,” which has raked in an astounding $7.70 billion in global ticket sales. “LOTR” has some pretty heavy lifting to do if it wants to get anywhere close to that, but it’s certainly not out of the realm of possibility.

The first of the three “Hobbit” films is currently playing nationwide.
