why don’t harry potter movies last more than 2 and a half hours?
the longest harry potter movie is harry potter and the chamber of secrets from 2002. it is the only harry potter movie that exceeds 2 hours and 30 minutes, but why?
well, this is something that is not rare. The Warner Brothers, who have distributed the Harry Potter film series, along with most other Hollywood productions, have a standard they rarely shy away from. It seems like movies that go past the 2 hour 30 minute mark are unproductive; the longer the film, the more production costs rise, theaters can squeeze in fewer features, and the audience becomes restless. especially if the audience is younger, their attention span is much shorter as they lose interest faster than their older peers.
so how long would it take to watch all the harry potter movies in a row?
If you were to have a movie marathon, excluding credits, it would take approximately 19 hours and 39 minutes. However, taking into account the breaks and the time it would take to even switch movies, the full movie marathon would probably work out to a little over 20 hours, which also marks the length of the full Harry Potter movies combined. so to effectively cut down on overtime, you’d be better off using the credits (which are typically 8-14 minutes long) as short breaks to recharge on snacks or maybe even stretch a bit. the other possibility would be to try to skip to the next movie first.
