August Box Office Rises and Falls

2 September 2011 5:43 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Despite a plague of pathetic new releases over the past two weeks, August 2011 ended up ahead of August 2010 in terms of gross. The month came in at $894 million, which was up two percent over last August. August 2011 ranked as the fourth highest-grossing August of all time, behind 2007, 2009 and 2003. However, it saw the steepest July-to-August drop on record, as business was off 36 percent from July's $1.4 billion haul.An estimated 111 million tickets were sold in August, off two percent from last year. That was on par with August 2005, ranking as one of the least-attended Augusts of the past 20 years. Amidst the doldrums, three movies excelled: Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Help and The Smurfs. Rise had the mightiest haul, raking in $151.5 million in 27 days of August play. That was the fourth highest-grossing showing ever for a single movie in August, after The Bourne Ultimatum, Rush Hour 2 and Signs, though its standing was much lower in terms of attendance. »
