Lionsgate Reaches One Billion Dollars at The Box Office

Posted on November 19, 2012 at 6:36 am by Justin Cavender

Lionsgate reported today they have eclipsed the $1 billion mark at the domestic box office in a single calendar year. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 brought in $141 million (USA box office) over this past weekend and totaled 340.9 million worldwide. Pretty impressive numbers and let’s not forget about The Hunger Games, which  grossed $408 million in domestic box office sales last Spring.

“Every member of our Motion Picture Group should take tremendous pride in this singular accomplishment,” said Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer and Vice ChairmanMichael Burns.  “The strength of our theatrical slate, both domestically and internationally, reflects the critical mass we’ve built throughout all of our businesses.  Led by the next three installments of our HUNGER GAMES franchise and new and emerging brands like ENDER’S GAME and DIVERGENT, our pipeline going forward continues to be strong.”

It will be interesting to see how much Lionsgate brings in domestically and worldwide by the end of the year. Did you watch Breaking Dawn Part 2 over the weekend? What did you think?
