> Harry Potter (series)
The Harry Potter movies first started coming out around or before LotR. Doesn't count.
A pale, forgettable rip-off of not only LotR, but also essentially a fantasy-ized version of Star Wars too.
> Bridge to Terabitha
Doesn't count. Even the producers of the movie admitted that the advertisements were misleading. Yes, there is some fantasy to it, but by and large it's a depressing 'coming of age' story set in the real world with some moments of escapist fantasy.
> The Brothers Grimm
I suppose they count, but both were ultimately flops at the box office for various, separate reasons.
> Chronicles of Narnia (worth pointing out thats a series of movies)
That I will concede.
> Upcoming: Beowulf
Right, but if I'm not mistaken, didn't Beowulf inspire some of LotR?
> Upcoming: His Dark Materials (series)
Never read the books, so I wouldn't know
> Arguably: Pirates of the Caribbean (series)
You know, your list actually had some credibility until you mentioned that. PotC might be fantasy, yes, but it's not mythological-based fantasy, unlike a majority of the movies you listed.
