  1. Well, like I promised I opened a thread about the box office of my country. I will strat with the yearly results, some short analysis about the nature of the market here.. I dont have the numbers of admissions because that is really hard information to find so I only have Box Office Mojo as my source of information about the box office of my country. There is available data since 2008 so I will start with that year until present. Every Wednesday or Thursday I will give updates about weekend box office and movies coming out the following weekend along with my predictions. Please feel free to add information if I miss anything. 2008 1 Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa $5,452,823 12/12 2 Kung Fu Panda $4,646,290 7/11 3 The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor $4,609,277 8/1 4 Wall-E $4,003,106 8/8 5 Hancock $3,603,410 7/4 6 The Dark Knight $3,488,816 7/18 7 The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian $3,292,014 6/20 8 Get Smart $3,043,734 6/27 9 10,000 B.C. $2,779,173 3/21 10 Twilight $2,766,971 12/19 11 Speed Racer $2,730,600 5/9 12 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull $2,682,566 5/22 13 What Happens in Vegas $2,480,128 5/16 14 The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008) $2,352,448 12/12 15 Bolt $2,236,184 12/19 16 Journey to the Center of the Earth $2,113,054 9/26 17 Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! $1,968,000 3/14 18 The Happening $1,910,445 6/13 19 Iron Man $1,891,944 4/30 20 You Don't Mess with the Zohan $1,886,460 8/29 Exchange rate: US $1 = 2.1518 Venezuelan Bolivar Fuerte 2009 1 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs Fox $11,644,527 7/3 2 2012 Sony $8,046,572 11/13 3 Up Disney $7,249,646 6/5 4 Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince WB $6,610,040 7/15 5 G-Force Disney $5,183,475 7/31 6 Avatar Fox $5,125,939 12/18 7 Fast and Furious UIP $4,604,144 4/3 8 Angels & Demons Sony $4,444,803 5/15 9 Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian Fox $4,372,866 5/22 10 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen UIP $4,030,620 6/26 11 Bedtime Stories Disney $3,556,942 2/13 12 Yes Man WB $3,356,562 1/23 13 Monsters Vs.

That is because other than Marvel superhero movies, the animated family films are the hot ticket here, almost garanteed box office hits. Here we have no "animation is just for kids" complex like other countries have. If its good everybody will go and see it. On 2013 that streak was going to continue until a local movie called Papita Mani Tostón came out on December 20th, 2013. This movie is a comedy about a couple who are fans of different baseball local teams, but these local teams are the eternal rivals (Lions of Caracas vs Sailors of Magallanes) and the boyfriend has to pretend in front the girlfriends family that he is a Magillian fan because her dad is non other than the manager of the Magillians team. It was a pretty big deal because baseball is the national sport here and Lion and Magillians truly are rival teams (I am a Lions fan myself ) and the movie was really really good. Its the first time that a local movie truly reflected the humorous venezuelan nature on screen so it became a huge success. The Venezuelan market is a very leggy one and competition is not really a problem but its in fact the opposite. The more movies are in theatres the better all movies will perform in general because we like variety, If nothing new is released in 2 or 3 weeks we just stop going and all movies perform bad no matter how good they are. Some of you make ask yourselves how come a country with such a bad economy can have a very healthy movie bussiness. Well the awnser its this: We are awere that this is a shitty country with a really bad economy, the social problems are even worse, insecurity is insane and dont even get me started about the politians here. The news at the TV and the papers are always depressing and its difficult to find pretty much any product anywhere because of lack of production. But like any other normal person we dont like to be depressed all time so we go to the movies to forget about these problems for at least two hours in a dark room. After all that is waht movie are made for, to escape from life just for a moment. But this is not a poor country (we produce and export petrolium) and people are not stupid, we will get out of this crisis and this corrupt goverment when the time comes. But we love movies no matter how good or bad things are and we will keep going because we deeply enjoy it. Well, Tomorrow or sooner I will post the weekend numbers as soon as BOM has the data available.
