CinemaCon: Worldwide B.O. Hits Record, Int’l Growth Strong

Worldwide box office hit a record $35.9 billion in 2013, with domestic totals reaching $10.9 billion, it was announced at Tuesday’s CinemaCon keynote address delivered by John Fithian, prexy of the National Assn. of Theater Owners, and Motion Picture Assn. of America topper Chris Dodd.

For the first time, the opening presentation of the annual exhib conference featured a retrospective of the top-grossing films worldwide. The promo was called “Going Global.” International markets brought in $25 billion in ticket sales last year, an increase of 4% from 2012.

“Our formula for success is simple. Hollywood creates and produces extraordinary stories, and you create truly extraordinary theater experiences,” Dodd said in his speech. “Together in 2013 we made that formula work perfectly.”
