WORLDWIDE STUDIO SCORECARD.  Very little change in the studio rankings of worldwide box office for the year to date.  No studio changed its ranking this week, and the top four studios grossed a modest $60 to $101 million each over the past week.

YEAR TO DATE BOX OFFICE. Looking at North American box office, 2014 is now running 1% behind last year but now 1% above the average for this point the past four years ($4.416 billion).  Over the same period, Hollywood films have grossed just almost $11.7 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.)

(billions) Weeks 1-24
North America Worldwide
2014 $4.469 $11.667 Jan 6-Jun 22
2013 $4.509 n/a Jan 7-Jun 23

2011 $4.134 n/a Jan 3-Jun 19
2010 $4.411 n/a Jan 4-Jun 20

The past six weeks in North America are now -13% behind the same period last year but now 2% above the four-year average for the similar six-week period ($1.349 billion).

WORLDWIDE GROSSES BY FILM TITLE.  Updated below.  Opening this week, Think Like a Man Too enters the chart at #29 with almost no overseas potential, while Jersey Boys enters the chart at #44 with very modest prospects overseas at best.  Still earning overseas, X-Men Days of Future Past took over the #2 spot, pushing Amazing Spider-Man 2 down to #3.  Maleficent (currently #4) and How to Train Your Dragon 2 (currently #15) earned the most overseas this past week.
