2018 Domestic Box Office Will Cross $11B Mark In Record Time This Week

  • Deadline
2018 Domestic Box Office Will Cross $11B Mark In Record Time This Week
Streaming did not kill moviegoing this year, not one bit.

While we all knew that the domestic box office was headed for an $11 billion-plus year, it turns out that we’re going to hit that mark in record time this week on either Tuesday or Wednesday completing the feat in 345 or 346 days. Through the end of today, ComScore estimates that we’re at $10.986 billion with $14.2M left to gross before we hit $11B. Remember, it will be an even slower week at the box office than last week since there weren’t any wide studio entries.

2016 was the last time we crossed $11B in record time –361 days for the period of Jan. 1 through Dec. 26– and that year also repped a banner one at the domestic B.O. with $11.4B.

Currently U.S./Canada movie ticket sales are pacing 6% ahead of 2016 ($10.35B) at this point in time for the period of Jan.

Kourtney Kardashian and Her Kids Met The Grinch and They Weren't Amused

Kourtney Kardashian and Her Kids Met The Grinch and They Weren't Amused
Sometimes the youngest kids ask the most profound questions. On Sunday, Kourtney Kardashian shared photos from her day at Universal Studios with her kids and her nieces and nephews, where they enjoyed a day at the park and met some pretty influential movie characters.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed in her caption that her son wisely asked Mr. Grinch, "Why did you steal Christmas?" That's the million dollar question! For someone who likes to burgle Christmas, The Grinch seemed pretty happy to be there. Reign, on the other hand, was the exact opposite. He appeared less than amused...

‘Green Book’ Rises; Same 6 Films Lead Box Office for Unprecedented Third Weekend

‘Green Book’ Rises; Same 6 Films Lead Box Office for Unprecedented Third Weekend
This was the worst-grossing weekend of 2018, not that it matters; this pre-Christmas weekend is usually among the lowest. All distributors avoided it for any new release, even throwaway titles. Historically, next week can be even worse (unless your film is “Star Wars” or similar). The priority now is to stake a claim that doesn’t risk seeing a film pulled for Christmas.

So, no new films, decreased gross — and at the same time, better holds for films currently on screen. That formula explains this week’s results. However, the same six films have led all others for three straight weeks and that’s unprecedented.

It also could have impact on weeks ahead. “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” “The Grinch,” and “Creed II” all grossed over $10 million in their third weekend (or later), in a slow period: That suggests they will play through the holiday. That would mean a major bonus for all three,

'Ralph' Reigns Over Slow Weekend at the Box Office While 'Aquaman' Dominates in China Debut
The domestic weekend was, for the most part, as light as was expected. While it wasn't the lowest grossing weekend of the year so far, it was the second lowest with the top twelve delivering a combined $77.8 million. This is all in advance of what should be a profitable holiday season to come and we got a hint as to just how profitable it could be with the launch of WB's Aquaman in China this weekend where the film delivered a massive $93.6 million, becoming the #1 film globally from one market alone. Beginning with the domestic box office, while it looked like it might be neck-and-neck between Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet and Universal and Illumination's The Grinch at the top of the box office following Friday's estimates, Ralph carried the weekend as expected, though The Grinch wasn't far behind.
