The pandemic has had a devastating effect on the world over the past two years, and movie theaters are no exception. Box office revenues are down significantly as some moviegoers have chosen to stay away from crowded indoor events. Yet, theaters are slowly but surely climbing their way back to some level of normalcy, with many films crossing $100 million in the U.S. alone.
The big studios like Disney and Warner Bros. are continuing to lead the pack, even if their films are making slightly less than normal. Disney has already released two films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and “Black Widow,” with two more on the way in Winter 2021. They’ve also earned hits from new iterations of existing IP, such as “Cruella” and “Jungle Cruise.” Meanwhile, Warner Bros. has an interesting business strategy this year where they are releasing their films simultaneously in theaters and free (with a subscription) on HBO Max. This hasn’t prevented films like “Godzilla vs. Kong,” “Space Jam: A New Legacy” and the third “Conjuring” film from entering the top of the yearly domestic gross.
