Box Office Earnings Hit Record Low Since September 2001

comscore box office

According to comScore, 'STX's 'Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets' enjoyed a solid weekend taking in $32.775 million in 32 international territories with a global cume to date of $163.8 million

Meanwhile, Warner Bros.' 'Annabelle: Creation' had another scary good weekend of $29.35 million and now stands at over $200 million worldwide.  China-based title 'Wolf Warrior 2' impressively crosses the $800 million mark.

But despite these earnings, the domestic box office hit a record low - the lowest amount earned in 16 years. To give you an idea, all of the films combined earned just $65m in North America and the top 12 films generated just $49.6m. The box office has had similar disappointments back in September in 2014 and in 2016. But it's not since September 2001 that the earnings have been this bad.

Perhaps people were spending their money on the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight instead.
