Domestic Box Office Top 100 of 2018: Disney Paces Record Year

The domestic box office hit $11.9 billion in 2018, up 6.7% over the previous year, and smashing the record $11.38 billion set in 2016. The top three earners — “Black Panther,” “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Incredibles 2” — all bested 2017’s B.O. champ, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”  ($517 million). Promisingly, in an era of increased entertainment options, more people went to the movies in 2018: Attendance is expected to rise more than 4% over the prior year. Disney took 26% of this year’s market share, outpacing Warner Bros., its closest rival, by more than $1 billion.
