Box office revenue generated by 20th Century Fox
The studio celebrated its most successful year in 2010, when its box office revenue neared 1.5 billion US dollars. The most successful movie of the year was the third installment in “The Chronicles of Narnia” series – “The Voyage of the Dawn Trader”. The film adaptation of the classic children’s novel written by Clive Staples Lewis was shown in more than 3.5 thousand theaters across North America for a period of 18 weeks, generating in total 104.4 million US dollars. Remarkably, it was the least successful out of all the Narnia-movies Fox had produced.
2012 was a successful year for the studio. Though its box office revenue looks moderate in comparison with the 2010 result, Fox held the largest share of the U.S. movie market, even if by beating both Warner and Sony by only 0.3 percent. The studio released 18 movies, among them Academy Award nominated “Lincoln” and “Life of Pi”. Five of Fox’s movies became blockbusters in the United States (earning more than 100 million US dollars) – “Prometheus”, “Ice Age: Continental Drift”, “Taken 2”, “Lincoln” and “Life of Pi”.
