Summer at the cinema: busting blocks and bucking trends

4 September 2012 6:46 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Look beyond the headlines, and you might think Americans are falling out of love with Hollywood. But there are reasons to cheer

Do you want the good news first or the bad news? The good news is that the summer of 2012 broke all the box office records that make studio executives feel their sap is on the rise. The Hunger Games gave them the "strongest opening weekend total for a spring release", while Joss Whedon's The Avengers smashed Harry Potter's record to become the biggest box office opening of all time." Seth McFarlane's Ted enjoyed "the best opening ever — $54m — by an R-rated original comedy", while The Dark Knight Rises, undented by the Aurora murders, provided not only "third- highest domestic bow ever, and the best opening for a 2D film" but "the biggest opening day of the year in France, where it grossed $2.7 million including previews." Vive la difference! »
