YEAR TO DATE BOX OFFICE. Looking at North American box office, 2014 is still running 7% ahead of last year and now 1% above the average for this point the past four years ($2.386 billion).  Over the same period, Hollywood films have grossed almost $6.4 billion worldwide when we add overseas box office.  

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.)
