Fox Hits $3 Billion in Worldwide Box Office for 2014

Fox Box Office: Studio Hits $3

Led by “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” 20th Century Fox has crossed the $3 billion mark in worldwide box office grosses this year.

The studio noted it had reached the $3 billion milestone only once before — in 2010, when it did so on June 30. Most of the 2010 grosses came from “Avatar.”

Fox’s 2014 grosses consist of a third in the U.S. and two-thirds internationally. It became the first studio to gross $1 billion in domestic box office for the year on July 13 and crossed the $2 billion mark in international box office on July 16 – also the first studio to do so.

Fox has hit $2 billion internationally for six years in a row and eight times in all.

The key contributors have been Fox Searchlight’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” with $168 million worldwide; “Rio 2” with  $490 million; “The Other Woman” with $195 million; “X-Men: Days of Future Past” with $735 million; “The Fault in Our Stars” with $243 million; “How to Train Your Dragon 2” with $366 million; and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” with $132 million.
