Produced by Really Useful Films and released by Warner Bros. Pictures, The Phantom of the Opera - starring Scottish actor Gerard Butler in the title role and introducing Emmy Rossum as Christine, with Tony and Emmy nominee Patrick Wilson - opened in late 2004, and grossed over $51 million dollars in the U.S. 

The film version of The Phantom of the Opera also starred Minnie Driver, Miranda Richardson, Simon Callow, and Ciaran Hinds, among others.

Broadway's longest-running musical, The Phantom of the Opera features music by Webber, lyrics by Charles Hart, and additional lyrics by Richard Stilgoe.  It is based on the classic novel by Gaston Leroux.
