WORLDWIDE STUDIO SCORECARD. Here is the first look at the 2015 Scorecard, with of course Warner Brothers breaking away into an early lead in worldwide box office thanks to American Sniper. If you are interested in the 2014 Scorecard, scroll down to the bottom of the post (as the remnants of overseas box office for late 2014 films continue to trickle in).
YEAR TO DATE BOX OFFICE. Looking at North American box office, 2015 to date is now +9% above last year and a huge +20% above the average for this point the past four years ($0.533 billion). Over the same period, Hollywood films have grossed just over $1.6 billion worldwide when we add overseas box office (that’s +12% ahead of the comparable worldwide box office last year at this stage).
A reminder: we define the start of each year as the first Monday after New Year’s Day, and our year ends on the Sunday after New Year’s Day the following calendar year. (The most recent week’s numbers are based on weekend estimates, which are usually at worst a couple of percentage points off from the final weekend tallies.)
|Box Office YEAR TO DATE|
|2015||$0.637||$1.613||Jan 5-Jan 25|
|2014||$0.584||$1.445||Jan 6-Jan 26|
|2013||$0.519||n/a||Jan 7-Jan 27|
|2012||$0.564||n/a||Jan 2-Jan 22|
|2011||$0.464||n/a||Jan 3-Jan 23|
The past six weeks in North America are now up +2% from the same period last year (much better than the -8% pace last week and the -11% two weeks ago) and now a healthy +13% above the four-year average for the similar six-week period ($1.326 billion).
