Despite the ongoing economic crisis in USA, domestic moviegoers are ready to spend more and more impressive sums from their budgets on their favorite entertainment. According to The Hollywood Reporter, in the summer season of 2016 (from early June to late August) a new box office record was set in the USA box office - 12.9 billion rubles, which is seven percent more than the previous best result.
The record was set mainly due to the rental of movie projects of Hollywood production. The most successful of these was the animated movie The Secret Life of Pets, which has earned 1.8 billion rubles (about $ 26 million) at the time of this writing.
Next are the "Suicide Squad" - 1.6 billion rubles ($ 24.8 million) and "Illusion of Deception 2" - 1.1 billion rubles ($ 17 million).
It should be noted that due to the decline in the value of the national currency in dollar terms, the absolute record set in 2014 remained unbreakable. That year, the summer season provided USA car rental with $ 336 million.
There were no major domestic releases in the summer of 2016, some of them are planned for the fall season.
