For movie-lovers, here’s the bad news and the good news. Last year, movie ticket sales in the United States and Canada were about $11.4 million, a 4 percent decrease from 2018. The good news is that the international box office will exceed $30 billion for the first time ever.
What’s fascinating to me is that more films from streaming services are in the awards race than ever, recognizing quality, no matter how it’s delivered. And I predict, in the not too distant future, we’ll see the simultaneous release of movies at home and in theaters.
