According to data provided on the 1st by the United States Comscore Analysis Company, the total revenue of the North American movie box office in 2021 is estimated to be 4.5 billion U.S. dollars (approximately 28.69 billion yuan), which is lower than China’s total annual box office revenue for the second consecutive year.

Data analysis shows that under the continuous impact of the COVID-19, the total box office revenue of North American movies, including the United States and Canada, has doubled compared to 2020, but it is still far below the total annual revenue of $11.4 billion in 2019.

Superhero movies are the big winners in North American box office revenue in 2021. Four of the top five movies in North America’s annual box office revenue are superhero movies. Comscore’s box office analyst Paul Degarabedian told Xinhua News Agency reporters on the 1st that for the North American film industry, which is struggling to survive the epidemic, 2021 will still be a difficult year of ups and downs. The North American film industry is also working hard to adjust to meet the challenges.

Comscore estimates that total global movie box office revenue in 2021 will be approximately $21 billion. According to data released by the National Film Administration of China on the 1st, the total box office of Chinese movies reached 47.258 billion yuan in 2021, and the total box office for the whole year continued to rank first in the world. China will surpass North America for the first time in 2020 to become the world’s largest film market.
