WORLDWIDE STUDIO SCORECARD.
YEAR TO DATE BOX OFFICE. Looking at North American box office, 2015 to date is now +4% above last year and still +2% above the average for this point the past four years ($8.361 billion). Over the same period, Hollywood films have grossed $22.6 billion worldwide when we add overseas box office (that’s still +6% 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.)
