Statista dossier on the box office in the U.S.

This dossier has been compiled to provide statistical information about the box office in the United States, and offers data on box office revenue and market shares, popular movies and genres, and admissions. The report also includes global key figures and takes a look at the number of screens and sites consumers in the U.S. have at their disposal to enjoy the latest releases.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, cinemas closed their doors to consumers in early 2020. This naturally impacted everything from film premieres to entire movie production schedules as social distancing measures were enforced and restrictions put in place for large public and private gatherings. Sources tracking box office results, making revenue predictions, or analyzing a movie's performance on the big screen were suddenly left without data to report on. In spite of this, the information in this dossier is as current as possible and provides yearly breakdowns running until the end of 2019, as well as the most recently available data before coronavirus shutdowns. In addition, the dossier features a chapter providing insights into the impact of the outbreak on the box office, which will be updated as more data becomes available.
