Box Office Mojo: 2012 Recap: Winners & Losers

Quote:With official results in, overall 2012 domestic box office came in at a record $10.83 billion. That's up six-and-a-half percent from last year and two percent from 2009, which previously held the record with $10.596 billion.

More importantly, there were approximately 1.36 billion tickets sold, which is higher than 2011 (1.28 billion) and 2010 (1.34 billion). While it isn't anywhere near the 2002 high of 1.58 billion, it still confirms that, even with the ever-increasing options for home entertainment, people will head out to movie theaters if the product is appealing enough.

As always, though, there were both winners and losers at the box office this year. Instead of breaking it down by title, we've decided to highlight a few trends in both the positive and negative column.

It's interesting to note that what you cannot see in these summaries is the various "nervous periods" when 2012 appeared to be behind 2011 on a week-by-week basis.

Basically the weeks 2012 performed better were way better than 2011 but there were many weeks of "weak openings".

Also interesting to note the growing CG animation field.

Another feature posted by Roberto in another thread adds to that note on CG Animation because this year we will have even more variety in animated pictures, including one about the designer responsible for Japan's World War 2 fighter planes.

It would interesting to know how many 3d tickets of the 1.36 billion were sold compare to previous years. Does Box Office Mojo has that kind of information?
