2012’s box office top 10 passes 2011’s top ten

2012’s box office top 10 passes 2011’s top ten

2012 has been looking like a great year at the domestic movie box office…and a very profitable one,

We track this all pretty carefully.

Well, as a sign of the strength of this year, the combined dogro (domestic gross) of the top ten movies of 2012 has already passed the combined dogro of the top 10 of 2011…and it’s only July.

Some of the top ten 2012 movies (especially ones that are new to the list) will still make a lot more money…and there are some really big movies yet to come that could knock some of these off the list with even higher totals  (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, to name two).

These were the top ten last year (2011):

They total $2,487m in dogro.

Here are the top ten of 2012 (so far):

The dogro total? $2,549m.

Here is our tracking for 2011:

and our tracking for 2012:

While it’s possible that the biggest movies of the year have already opened (The Avengers seems safe at number one…and catching The Hunger Games with over $400m would be impressive, but doable), there are still some really big movies to open.

This could be a very good year indeed…
