Box Office Mojo’s Ray Subers reveals the Top 10 Box Office Success Stories in 2013 as part on IMDb’s Year in Review. Three Wilmywood shot movies made that list which discusses over-performing blockbusters along with surprise hits:
#1 of course is Iron Man 3 – Ray says, “While Iron Man 3 was the top movie of the year at the domestic box office (over $409 million), the real upside was overseas, where its $806 million haul was more than double that of its predecessor. Worldwide, the movie’s $1.2 billion total ranks fifth all-time. ”
#6 We’re the Millers – Ray writes, “Benefiting from good scheduling and a strong premise, road trip comedy. We’re the Millers got off to a solid start in early August. The movie then held well thanks to strong word-of-mouth, and ultimately became the highest-grossing movie of August 2013. To date, it has earned over $150 million at the domestic box office. ”
Coming in right behind one of the best comedies of the year is The Conjuring at #7. This is definitely on the surprise list, surpassing all expectations. “The Conjuring wrapped up its domestic run with $137.4 million, which made it the top supernatural horror movie in over a decade. ”
