U.S. Box Office Hits Record $9.6 Billion

The U.S. movie box office took in $9.6 billion in 2007, according to numbers released by the Motion Picture Association of America. That figure is a 5.4 percent increase from 2006 and is an all-time record, the association said. U.S. film studios released 603 films, of which 11 grossed $200 million or more. Four of those films grossed $300 million or more during the year. The entertainment industry faced serious challenges in 2007, from the television and film writers strike to the global impact of film theft, said association Chairman and CEO Dan Glickman. “But, ultimately, we got our Hollywood ending,” Glickman said. “Once again, diverse, quality films and the timeless allure of the movie house proved a winning combination with consumers around the world.”
