Universal Pictures most lucrative studio in 2023


Los Angeles, United States, Jan 2 (EFE).-

With films such as “Oppenheimer” and “The Super Mario Bros. The Movie,” Universal Pictures became the most lucrative studio in 2023, dethroning it by a difference of $80 million to Disney, who had led in this metric since 2015.

According to a statement issued by the studio and reported by specialized media, Universal reached approximately $4.91 billion in ticket sales with the 24 films it released internationally in 2023.

Disney grossed approximately $4.83 billion internationally thanks to 17 films, including “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” and “The Little Mermaid.”

The $80 million difference can be attributed to the fact that Disney released seven fewer films than Universal, however this year the list of the three highest-grossing films of the year also does not include any Disney productions, which has not happened in years.

The highest grossing film of 2023 was the Warner Bros. comedy directed by Greta Gerwig, and inspired by Mattel’s toy doll “Barbie,” which grossed more than $1.44 billion, followed by the more than $1.36 million from “The Super Mario Bros. The Movie” and the more than $952 million from “Oppenheimer,” by Christopher Nolan.

The Marvel and Disney film “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” was the fourth most lucrative, with $845 million raised internationally. It is also the first year since 2014 that none of Disney’s films surpassed the $1 billion barrier.

The third most lucrative studio in 2023 was Warner Bros., which raised $3.84 billion for films such as “Barbie,” “The Nun II” and “Wonka.” EFE
