Sony Pictures was the only major Hollywood studio to see box office gains in North America in the 2017 summer season compared to the same amount in 2016. This is evidenced by statistics cited by the publication Deadline.
It is said that the growth was 25 percent, and in absolute terms, the studio's projects earned $ 595 million at home. The most important financial "locomotive" of Sony Pictures was the movie "Spider-Man: Homecoming", which grossed nearly 400 million dollars at the American box office. The studio has also released a number of low-budget but successful movies, such as the crime thriller Baby Drive, which cost only $ 34 million to produce and grossed over $ 100 million.
The rest of the Hollywood majors recorded a drop in fees compared to the 2016 summer season, despite the presence of blockbusters. So, Warner Bros. were down nine percent, Paramount down 33 percent, Universal down 34 percent, and Walt Disney down 39 percent.
In terms of year-to-date gross, Walt Disney continues to lead the rankings. p>
