2018 Box Office on Track to Set New Record

2018 box office total

Despite the persistent fear that streaming will kill off movie theaters, the 2018 box office is on track to break records, domestically. The domestic box office revenue for the year just hit $11 billion, and will only continue to increase in the remaining days of 2018. This puts 2018 on the path to obliterate the previous record-holding year of 2016, where the annual box office topped-out at $11.4 billion. In short, it was a very good year for the movies. But some films weren’t so lucky…

bird box review

“It’s going to be rough,” Malorie says at the start of Bird Box. She’s looking right into the camera when she says this, and it’s as if she’s speaking directly to us – warning us that what we’re about to see is particularly unpleasant.
