WORLDWIDE STUDIO SCORECARD.  A great week for Fox, which vaults into second place and just over $900 million worldwide box office year to date.  The very strong Fox week was paced by the domestic rollout of The Other Woman and continued international strength from Rio 2.  Disney remains in the top spot with just under $1 billion worldwide so far this year, and Warner Brothers is lurking in third place (just under $900 million).

YEAR TO DATE BOX OFFICE. Looking at North American box office, 2014 is now running a healthy 11% ahead of last year and now 3% above the average for this point the past four years ($2.671 billion).  Over the same period, Hollywood films have grossed over $7.1 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.)
