The 4K, 3D reissue of Chris Columbus' "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," the first installment in the popular Harry Potter franchise, was a successful re-release in China last year and aroused serious Harry Potter nostalgia among Chinese fans. The film's release was an attempt to kickstart the frozen film market when screens reopened after having been shut for months due to COVID-19. Audiences were quick to demonstrate their excitement to return to the big screen and the film went on to gross 192 million yuan (247 million if you include the 65 million takings from its original release in 2002). When combined with its 2020 box office earnings, the film's global earnings exceed $1 billion, the second movie in the Harry Potter franchise to do so.
