IN GENERAL, HOLLYWOOD WAS HAPPY with BOX OFFICE NUMBERS for 2012 -- GROSSES SET an ALL-TIME RECORD, TOPPING $10 BILLION, and ATTENDANCE WAS UP (THOUGH MOST of the GROWTH in TOTAL TAKE WAS DUE to INFLATED TICKET PRICES). 

HERE's the http://www.boxofficemojo.com/yearly/chart/?yr=2012&p=.htm - to CHECK OUT BOX OFFICE MO JO's ANNUAL CHART of BIGGEST-GROSSING MOVIES. MOST of the TOP-RANKED TITLES WERE PREDICTABLE EVEN BEFORE THEY WERE RELEASED -- THE BERRY ENTERTAINING POPCORN FLICK AVENGERS CAME IN at #1 by a WIDE MARGIN (with an IMPRESSIVE TOTAL DOMESTIC TAKE of $623.5 MILLION).


ONLY ONE of OUR POTENTIAL WORST PICTURE CANDIDATES PLACED NEAR the TOP of the LIST: TWILIGHT S.B.D. #2 CAME in JUST BEHIND SKYFALL for 5th PLACE. 

OTHER RAZZIE® TARGETS FARED LESS WELL: TAKEN 2 IS the ONLY OTHER MAJOR CATEGORY CONTENDER to TOP $100 MILLION. EXPENDABLES 2 DID BETTER THAN the FIRST FILM in THAT FRANCHISE, TOPPING $85 MILLION. WRATH of the TITANS, JOHN CARTER, MADEA's WITLESS PROTECTION, BATTLESHIP, UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING, TOTAL RECALL, THE DEVIL INSIDE and GHOST-RIDER 2 EACH TOPPED $50 MILLION by VARYING DEGREES. NONE of OUR OTHER MAJOR RAZZIE® CONTENDERS BROKE the $50 MILLION BARRIER. 

FINALLY, WE ARE BERRY PLEASED to ANNOUNCE THAT THAT's MY BOY (ADAM SANDLER's FOLLOW-UP to HIS BOX OFFICE DUD THAT SWEPT LAST YEAR's RAZZIES®) ONLY GROSSED ABOUT 50% of WHAT JACK & JILL DID ($36.9m for BOY VERSUS $74.1 for J&J). WE'D LIKE to THINK WE HAD SOMETHING to DO with THAT...
