|The success of Harry Potter’s box office release is a sure bet. But if you knew just how successful the movie would be you could triple your money by taking odds at 3:1 on the film beating box office records. BetWWTS.com has created a line on Harry Potter 2 eclipsing the success of Spiderman in its first weekend of release. |
You can also grab a 10/11 bet that the film will top $100,000,000 in gross revenue in weekend 1, while those in the know could back it won’t at 10/13.
This is not the first time a movie’s success has had a line at the bookies, but with Harry Potter being a modern US icon, it may be the first time the pubic will stand up and notice.
Will the ticket agents be in the box office window when you get there, or will they bet against and take the night off? Will the film projector operator meet with sudden misfortune as the figures creep towards the $100,000,000 mark? There have yet to be accusations of “fixing” in the film industry...but in Hollywood anything is possible.
