    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone has Reached $1 Billion Box Office Profit in the Muggles' World

    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone has Reached $1 Billion Box Office Profit in the Muggles' World

    The Chinese citizens surely missed going to movie theaters. As soon as the cinemas were permitted to re-open amidst the lockdown, movies earned millions of dollars in box office led by the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone re-released.

    Since the pandemic, most of the theater houses are forced to close their businesses that resulted in a huge market loss. It was just four weeks ago when cinemas are allowed to operate again in China.

    In times like this, people are still in doubt to see movies in theaters, so business owners needed a reliable strategy to encourage profit once more.

    One of their cards is re-releasing timeless movies such as J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter series and other box office hit film. Theaters have made it work by making the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone available into 3D and 4k screens.



    Harry Potter fans in China swarmed over 16,000 cinemas that offer the fantasy movie in 3D and 4K, which led it to $1 billion box office profit worldwide. In three days alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone garnered $13 million, including the $2.9 million hits in 594 IMAX screens.

    The 19-year-old fantasy-themed movie was the second amongst the series, which have reached the $1 billion box office profit, taking after the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. The entire magical series of Harry Potter has grossed for over $7.77 billion, which has made its director and producers proud.

    “We are thrilled to see Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone delight a new generation of audiences. The popularity of the film with moviegoers in China, who are discovering it for the first time, proves that the appeal of these stories is truly timeless and universal,” the president of Warner Bros Pictures, Andrew Cripps, said today.

    The film was based on the well-known novelist J.K. Rowling, which was directed by Chris Columbus along with Steve Kloves’ screenplay. David Heyman led the production of the series with Columbus and the executive producers, namely Mark Radcliffe, Michael Barnathan, and Duncan Henderson.

    Previous Guest of DeGeneres Show Shared her "pretty humiliating" Experience Behind the Scenes

    Previous Guest of DeGeneres Show Shared her "pretty humiliating" Experience Behind the Scenes

    Allegations about the Ellen DeGeneres show still circulate the internet as speculations were continuously coming out about the show and the host.

    Former guests of the talk show wanted to share how it is to be in front of the well-known Ellen DeGeneres and be part of the show.

    Dana Dimatteo and her friends flew from Chicago to be part of the Ellen Show segment ‘Make it Rain.’ They have expected it to be an amazing experience, but it turns out that they were completely wrong.

    According to Dana, there is a rule that needs to follow if ever chosen to take part in a segment, and that is “not to be funnier and smarter than Ellen.” Since according to the producers, the star and comedian of the show is not her guest but Ellen. Dana also added that the experience was “pretty humiliating,” she told The Sun.



    “We were told to act in a very specific way and to only speak if she asked us a question. They made us scream and jump around backstage as a test, it was pretty humiliating.”

    She also claimed that the smiling and laughing were all for the show because as soon as the camera is not rolling, the host would not acknowledge or talk to anyone and will sit alone silently.

    “During commercial breaks, Ellen would break out of her ‘kind’ of character and sit moodily in silence on her couch, not acknowledging anyone,” Dana continued.

    “She didn’t say one word to the audience unless the cameras were on, she snapped out of her character the second the cameras stopped rolling.”

    Recently, the staff of the show complains about having toxicity within the workplace. Complaints were publicized in a news portal and cause the show to be scrutinized. And soon after, Ellen DeGeneres’ executive managers were accused of sexual harassment and racism, which have added fuel to the fire.

    Previous known staff like DJ Tony shared his experience as well during his stay on the show. He also claimed that there is really toxicity in the said show.

    Although there is no claim directly pointing at Ellen DeGeneres, she apologizes through an email sent to her staff and said that she took full responsibility for what happened.

    In addition, the firm stated that they are currently making a compilation of those unlawful comments as evidence for “making criminal complaints.” They have also mentioned that they will be requesting to delete the malicious comments on several online platforms, including DC Inside, cafes, and blogs.

    Moreover, the firm and Lee’s agency hopes for other people who might have read or seen articles about the actor to disseminate the information to MYM’s email address.

    “We are also collecting evidence and building a list of malicious commenters based on information received through the email address from MYM below, so we are hoping to receive a lot of information.”



    Lee Min Ho’s agency already warned the online bullies about the legal action that they could take since last year. MYM Entertainment revealed that the renowned Korean actor had suffered mental stress because of the critical comments and posts about Lee.

    According to reports, the online harassment affected the actor's mental health and even his work. Fortunately, he was doing well right now after resting and seeking help from professionals.

    Cyberbullying and harassment have been the ultimate problem faced by celebrities and famous personalities nowadays. It must stop and need to be stopped since it does not just affect the person but also his whole life.

    Last week, Alyssa Milano shared on her Instagram that she tested positive of coronavirus disease. And on Sunday, she posted a video of her while combing her hair and shared that she is still experiencing hair loss as one of the symptoms of the disease.

    The 47-year-old actress is filming herself while combing several times and showed a bunch of hair afterward. Alyssa said that she “just want to show to you the amount of hair that’s coming out of my head as a result of COVID.” She also implied to her followers to take the matter seriously and to “wear a damn mask.”



    Although hair loss is still not on the current list of the official symptoms of the coronavirus, there is a study found that over 400 people experienced hair loss out of 1,500 who are suffering from long-term effects of the virus.

    On “Who’s the boss” actress’s post last week, she shared her experience of the disease, which includes the screenshot of her result along with a photo of her while wearing an oxygen mask.

    “This was me on April 2nd after being sick for 2 weeks, I have never been this kind of sick. Everything hurt. Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breath. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible,” she captioned on her post.

    This was me on April 2nd after being sick for 2 weeks. I had never been this kind of sick. Everything hurt. Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible. I basically had every Covid symptom. At the very end of march I took two covid19 tests and both were negative. I also took a covid antibody test (the finger prick test) after I was feeling a bit better. NEGATIVE. After living the last 4 months with lingering symptoms like, vertigo, stomach abnormalities, irregular periods, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, zero short term memory, and general malaise, I went and got an antibody test from a blood draw (not the finger prick) from a lab. I am POSITIVE for covid antibodies. I had Covid19. I just want you to be aware that our testing system is flawed and we don’t know the real numbers. I also want you to know, this illness is not a hoax. I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying. I will be donating my plasma with hopes that I might save a life. Please take care of yourselves. Please wash your hands and wear a mask and social distance. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I felt. Be well. I love you all (well, maybe not the trolls. Just the kind people.)❤️

    Prior to the positive result, she had already undergone testing twice in March, but both resulted in negative. As she felt sick even though she tested negative, Alyssa decided to take the finger-prick test, which can detect COVID-19 antibodies, but she still got a negative result.

    In the next four months, Alyssa experienced severe symptoms of the virus and decided to get tested again. Fortunately, she is now recovering from the disease, and she also decided to donate plasma to “save a life.”

    “I also want you to know, this illness is not a hoax. I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying,” Alyssa wrote. “I will be donating my plasma with hopes that I might save a life. Please take care of yourselves. Please wash your hands and wear a mask and social distance. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I felt. Be well. I love you all (well, maybe not the trolls.
