WORLDWIDE STUDIO SCORECARD.  The release of X-Men: Days of Future Past has pushed 20th Century Fox to the top of the heap with over $1.5 billion in worldwide box office in 2014 to date.  The race will ebb and flow through the rest of the summer and into the holiday season, but Fox, Warner Brothers and Sony look really impressive so far.

Studio YTD 2014 as of 2014 May 25

YEAR TO DATE BOX OFFICE. Looking at North American box office, 2014 is now running just 2% ahead of last year and still only 1% above the average for this point the past four years ($3.488 billion).  Over the same period, Hollywood films have grossed almost $9.4 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.)
