“Harry Potter” now has beaten out “Star Wars” to become the top-grossing film franchise, Entertainment Weekly recently reported in its 2011 “year in review” issue.

This summer’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” earned $381 million at the box office, bringing the franchise’s domestic total to $2.4 billion. “Star Wars” has taken in $2.2 billion domestically.

Also doing well at the box office in 2011 were superhero films, with “Captain America,” “X-Men: First Class” and “Thor” pulling in about $504 million combined (all three also made Entertainment Weekly’s list of the 15 top-grossing movies of the year).
