More Milestones for The Two Towers
February 2nd, 2003
Weekend estimates are in and The Two Towers pulled in $5 million for a total of nearly $316 million surpassed both The Fellowship of the Ring and The Lion King to put The Two Towers into 9th spot for the All Time Domestic box office. Next on the list is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone at $317.5 million and Forrest Gump at $329 million. How much farther The Two Towers can go domestically now depends heavily on Oscar nominations and the resulting box office bump.
Although reliable international estimates for this weekend are not yet in, it looks like The Two Towers broke $750 million mark worldwide, only the 12th film to reach that plateau. With the Japanese premiere still three weeks away The Two Towers incredible worldwide run is still going strong.
