Where the Data Ranks 2017’s Comic Book Films
Last week we wrapped up our coverage of 2016’s comic adaptations and this week we begin to look at 2017 where there’s already been six films released in just five months.
Already, there year is an interesting one with two clear successes and a whole lot of mixed otherwise. Logan and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have done well this year, The LEGO Batman Movie and Smurfs: The Lost Village are in that debatable area, and Wilson and Ghost in the Shell are generally disappointments.
Here’s where this year’s movie crop stands as far as the actual numbers:
Total Domestic Gross: $819.5 million
Total International Gross: $1.238 billion
Worldwide Gross: $2.0 billion
Total Reported Budgets: $552 million
Total “Profit”: $1.505 billion
Average Domestic Gross: $136.6 million
Average International Gross: $247.5 million
Average: Worldwide Gross: $333.4 million
Average Budget: $92 million
