RECORD YEAR AT BOX OFFICE

It’s been a year for the history books…and we’ve still got one more weekend to go! The latest numbers show that box office revenue in 2018 hit an all-time high of $11.383 billion, surpassing the previous record of $11.382 billion set in 2016 (and erasing 2017’s flop). Disney’s trio of superhero action flicks, which we didn’t like but everyone else apparently did, helped drive sales, as did Aquaman, which opened to $67.4 million at the box office, and made a big splash over Christmas. Also bumping the numbers up, but to a much lesser degree: Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee.
