Latin America Box Office | Year of records! Endgame highest grosser ever, Toy Story 4 #1 animation, Joker biggest DC

Recommended Posts

Latin America is a very dynamic region with expanding audience and grosses in local currency. Sadly due to shrinking exchange rates, the gross in US$ is lower in 2015 than in previous years. For box office purposes, it comprises the following markets:

  • Mexico
  • Central America and some of the biggest Caribbean islands (usually reported as Panama)
  • Trinidad, Suriname and smaller Caribbean islands (usually reported as Trinidad)
  • Colombia
  • Venezuela
  • Ecuador
  • Brazil
  • Peru
  • Bolivia
  • Argentina
  • Chile
  • Uruguay
  • Paraguay

In 2015, Mexico (US$0.9B), Brazil (US$0.8B), Venezuela (US$0.3B) and Argentina (US$0.2B) were the Top 4 in terms of US$ gross.

 

Since it's hard to find details for the whole area, decided to open this thread to ask for help, gather numbers and find out which are the best grossing and most viewed movies in Latin America, as well as potential forecasts.  Any other info exchange is welcome.

First one is Fast and Furious 7. I think it has the record for biggest US$ gross in the region, with over $222.2M. It'd be interesting to see its audience.

 Mexico 	 $51,794 
 Brazil 	 $46,522 
 Venezuela 	 $39,076 
 Argentina 	 $25,899 
 Colombia 	 $16,390 
 Central Amer 	 $13,061 
 Chile 	 	  $9,430 
 Peru 	 	  $7,222 
 Ecuador 	  $6,157 
 Caribbean 	  $2,266 
 Bolivia 	  $2,082

Some updated TFA totals in USD to 27/12 as per Mojo:

  • Venezuela: $9,225,427
  • Argentina: $4,630,657 --> with the pre-December ER, it'd be over $6M.
  • Chile: $4,576,238 --> good
  • Peru: $4,182,958 --> very good
  • Colombia: $3,134,553
  • Ecuador: $1,309,075
  • Bolivia: $1,085,072
  • Uruguay: $269,469

 

No numbers for Paraguay, Central America or Caribbean.  Adding latest Mexico and Brazil numbers, TFA has grossed $66M in the region so far.

Star Wars surpassed 1Million Tickets in Chile (and is really close to 1.1Million), probably its going to end at 1.3 (hollywood movies here tend to be REALLY front loaded). That is a good result for a December release here (the strongest box office time is July and October here)

Found this today

 

Box Office Report of Panama in 2015

 

According to the report 5,750,000 people attended theaters in Panama last year which would be an increase of 13.3% over 2014 (We are approximately 4 million people so I assume it has to be total admissions).

 

Therefore, the number of cinemas and screens display has been rising. About 80 in early 2014, it became 99 in 2015, spread over 14 cinema complexes throughout the country, according to records of the Association of Film Distributors.

 

In 2016 it is expected to have 135 screens across the country and within these the first IMAX screen in Panama.

 

This are admissions numbers

 

Asistencia

 

And the Top 10 was:

 

1. Fast and Furious 7

2. Avengers: Age of Ultron

3. Minions

4. Jurassic World

5. San Andreas

6. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (still in theaters)

7. Hotel Transylvania 2

8. Inside Out

9. The Hunger Games: Mockigjay Part II

10. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Didn't know where to post this. There is a Top 10 for Paraguay, published almost every day by Comscore (@cSMoviesPara) on Twitter. Sadly no BO numbers or indication if it's a daily or weekend ranking. Latest one: #1 IA5, #2 Me Before You, #3 Dory, #4 Conjuring 2, #5 Warcraft.
