WORLDWIDE STUDIO SCORECARD. Updated look at 2016 by studio.
YEAR TO DATE BOX OFFICE. Looking at North American box office, 2016 to date is now only marginally above last year and still +3% above the average for this point the past four years ($9.818 billion). Over the same period, Hollywood films have grossed $25.4 billion worldwide when we add overseas box office (that’s now -2% below the comparable worldwide box office last year at this stage and still ahead of 2014 by +5%).
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.)
