Posted by at 4:12 pm on January 1, 2018

Box-office tracking service comScore has released the results of the year in movie box-office with the industry generating a record $39.92 billion worldwide in 2017, jumping 3% on last year.

The gain came despite a 2.3% slide in US box office to a total of $11.12 billion. International receipts jumped 5% to $28.8 billion and not only covered the shortfall but helped surge the overall tally to a new high.

The improvement was due to a variety of strong performances, notably the Chinese blockbuster Wolf Warrior 2 which has grossed $870 million along with all the various major U.S. releases like Beauty and the Beast, Despicable Me 3, The Fate of the Furious and Star Wars: The Last Jedi which all took in over a billion each.

Wonder WomanThor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 each took in more than $800 million on a worldwide basis.
