WORLDWIDE STUDIO SCORECARD.  20th Century Fox had a terrific week with the combination of the okay arrival of How to Train Your Dragon 2 and the continued overseas revenue from X-Men Days of Future Past.  Fox now stands at over $2.2 billion worldwide year to date, miles ahead of Warner Brothers ($1.7 billion), which is still seeing overseas returns from Edge of Tomorrow and Godzilla.  Sony flipped back above Disney (each just over $1.5 billion), thanks to opening of 22 Jump Street.

YEAR TO DATE BOX OFFICE. Looking at North American box office, 2014 is now running 1% ahead of last year and now 2% above the average for this point the past four years ($4.172 billion).  Over the same period, Hollywood films have grossed just over $11.2 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.)
