WORLDWIDE STUDIO SCORECARD.  The release of Maleficent has put Disney in a virtual three-way tie for second place (with Warner Brothers and Sony), each with around $1.35 billion worldwide for 2014 to date.  Fox remains comfortably in first place with $1.7 billion.  The other studios remain out of the running, particularly Universal, which was not helped at all by A Million Ways to Die in the West.

YEAR TO DATE BOX OFFICE. Looking at North American box office, 2014 is still running 2% ahead of last year and still only 1% above the average for this point the past four years ($3.732 billion).  Over the same period, Hollywood films have grossed just over $10.0 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.)
