"As 2013 comes to an end, Hollywood studios are reviewing their last year's performance in theatrical. For the first time ever, Warner Brothers surpassed $3bn for international box office, according to data from Variety and Screen Daily. With total revenues at $5.04bn, of which $3.14bn from international sales and $1.90bn from domestic, Warner topped the list among other Hollywood studios. Warner had a total of 19 new releases in 2013, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was the biggest hit with $653m box office. Other top performers include Gravity ($398.7m, and still on release), Man of Steel ($371.8m) and Pacific Rim ($305.8m).
Disney ranked second with a total box office of $4.73bn worldwide, and also crossed the $3bn for the first time in international revenue ($3.01bn from overseas and $1.72bn from domestic). Disney actually had a very impressive year, given the fact that it only had 10 releases in 2013, significantly fewer than Warner. Disney's highest grossing film was Iron Man 3, which generated $1.21bn globally and was also the number one film in the whole industry in 2013...."
