Yearly 2014 Box Office Down In Italy, But ‘Sniper’ Killing Is Sparking Upbeat Mood For 2015

19 January 2015 6:32 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Yearly box office in Italy dropped 7 percent in 2014 to $666 million, as both local and Hollywood pics lost market share. But 2015 has kicked off strong largely thanks to Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” which has now cumed more than $18 million on Italian screens since making a killer opening as the year started.

And solid bows this weekend of both “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and “The Theory of Everything” also bode well for Italo moviegoing to bounce back this year.

“Exodus” bowed this weekend in Italy at $3 million of 649 screens via Fox; “Everything” took $1.5 million from 308 via Universal.

“Sniper,” which launched in Italy on January 1, prior to any other country on the planet, is being cited by a Warner Bros. statement as testimony that Italy remains an important movie market. Since the start of 2015 Italo box office intake and admissions are both up more than 10 percent year-on-year.

After smashing all previous »
