The studio — which commands nearly a third of marketshare — set the previous industry record of $7.6 billion in 2016. Disney's domination has reached a new high. The studio announced Sunday that it is crossing the $10 billion mark in 2019 global ticket sales, including $3.28 billion domestically and $6.72 billion internationally. When including Fox titles the studio has released since the Disney-21st Century merger in late March, that number grows to $11.94 billion. Disney blew past the previous industry record of $7.6 billion all the way back in July. The question now is how high Disney will fly by by the time Dec. 31 wraps, considering it has yet to release Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which opens in less than two weeks. Frozen 2 is the latest mega-win for Disney. The sequel finished Sunday with a massive global total of $919.7 million and is now assured of becoming the sixth 2019 Disney release to join the billion dollar club after Avengers: Endgame — … [Read more...] about Box Office: Disney Smashes Past $10B in 2019 Global Ticket Sales
Neon’s film festival favorite Portrait of a Lady on Fire didn’t cause an inferno at the specialty box office, but it managed to have a warming glow of an estimated weekend gross of $67,105.

But I reckon I got to light out for the Territory ahead of the rest, because Aunt Sally she’s going to adopt me and sivilise me and I can’t stand it. I been there before. – Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn The Dead didn’t get it going Wednesday night at Winterland, and that was too bad. The gig was a bail fund benefit for the People’s Park in Berkeley, and the giant ice-skating cavern was packed with heads. The whole park hassle – the benefit was for the 450 busted a few days before – had been a Berkeley political trip all the way down, but the issue was a good-timey park, so the crowd, though older and more radical than most San Francisco rock crowds, was a fine one in a good dancing mood, watery mouths waiting for the groove to come. The Airplane were on the bill too, so were Santana, the Act of Cups, Aum, and a righteous range of others; a San Francisco all-star … [Read more...] about Good Old Grateful Dead

Disney Animation Studios' Frozen 2 easily stayed atop the North American box office in its third weekend with $34.7 million, while fellow animated pic Playmobil: The Movie came apart with a debut of just $811,000. Playmobil, released domestically by STXfilms, marks the third-worst opening of all time for a title rolling out domestically in more than 2,000 theaters despite special ticket pricing of $5 in most theaters across the country.
