May box office $ 269.3 mil to date Heading into Memorial Day, domestic film box office for the May period (April 30-June 3) is 14% ahead of last year.

At this pace, final monthly tally will challenge 1989’s record May gross of $ 398.6 million. A strong holiday could set a new record. In any case, May 1993 will almost certainly beat last May’s $ 378.2 million.
