Overall Box Office Up More Than 3% from 2005

by | January 4, 2007 | Comments

Total domestic box office showed a 3.4% climb in 2006, thanks mainly to semi-expensive profit-turners like "Talladega Nights," "The Break-Up," and "The Devil Wears Prada." And boy oh boy did Sony have a good year!

$9.13 billion looks to be the final tally on the 2006 box office pool, with every studio slicing up their own part of the pie. (2005 brought in $8.83 billion, while 2004 was pretty impressive with $9.21 billion.)

Sony took 18.59% of the 2006 market share, thanks mainly to titles like "Casino Royale," "The Da Vinci Code," and "Ricky Bobby," while Disney settled for second place, bolstered mainly by the one-two punch of "Cars" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest."

In third place was Fox and their "Borat," "Prada," "X-Men: The Last Stand," and "Night at the Museum."

Warner Bros. and Paramount follow up the rear, although both had solid turnouts for flicks like "Happy Feet," "Superman Returns," "The Departed," "Over the Hedge," and "Mission: Impossible 3." Universal had a tough year; according to Variety, their biggest hit of 2006 was the aforementioned "The Break-Up," which made just under $119 million.
