Already grossing more than $900 million worldwide, the last movie in franchise would top off the number of first film.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" is on the track to become the first in its franchise to pass the $1 billion milestone in only two weeks after its theatrical release. The last film in the "Harry Potter" saga was given an enthusiastic farewell from its fans worldwide and will pass the mark this Saturday, July 30.

Domestically, the seventh "Harry Potter" film has grossed $296 million as of Thursday, July 28. At the same time, the film has grossed $630 million in international market, adding to a total of $926 million. The weekend income is expected to easily close the gap between the total number and a billion.

Released in 3D, the movie has passed a number of milestones since its July 15 release. By comparison, it would beat the gross of "Socerer's Stone", the best in the series, this weekend. "Socerer's Stone" was the top grossing pic in the franchise with $974.8 million in 2001-02.

When "Deathly Hallows 2" reaches the $1 billion mark, it would officially be the ninth movie in history to gross that much worldwide after "The Dark Knight", "Alice in Wonderland", "Avatar" and five others.
