Hollywood Studios Will Withhold Box-Office Numbers For The Weekend
Normally on Sunday, Hollywood studios release their box-office totals for the weekend to see which movie rakes in the most money. While it is expected that “The Dark Knight Rises” will clearly be the winner this weekend, with estimates of over $160 million being made in its 3-day opening weekend, the studios are withholding numbers until Monday following the tragic events in Colorado.
Our partners at The Northland’s News Center are reporting that Sony, Fox, Disney and Universal are joining “Dark Knight Rises” distributor Warner Brothers in withholding their box-office numbers for the weekend.
Warner Brothers said it would wait until Monday to release its revenue report out of respect for the families and victims of the shootings.
