2013's third quarter came to a close on Monday, and for the fifth straight month the year improved upon 2012's performance. September rang up $572.8 million at the box office, up a hairline 0.2 percent from the same month last year. It marked the second best ever September gross behind 2011's $604.16 million.

 

FilmDistrict's Insidious Chapter 2 won the month with $69.7 million in its first 18 days of release. Among September's releases, Riddick and Prisoners were in tow with $40.2 million and $39.4 million, respectively. However, August holdovers Lee Daniels' The Butler ($42.0 million) and We're the Millers ($37.9 million) were equally as strong with fantastic word of mouth propelling each flick beyond summer's end. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 also contributed with its $34 million opening weekend. Not to be forgotten is Lionsgate's Spanish comedy sleeper, Instructions Not Included, which tallied an impressive $34.1 million throughout its September expansion.

 

Attendance-wise, September saw slightly fewer moviegoers visit their local cinema for a second straight year as estimated ticket sales dipped 2.2 percent from 2012's comparable month... (more)

Yeah, I just realised that this would be five months in a row that increased, something that last happened in 2009, from August to December.

Are you certain about admissions? The quarterly average isn't usually revealed until midway through the first month of the next quarter.

Unless everything in October performs well above expectations, it'll be a dire month. It could "beat" 2007 for the worst October since 1996.

We made it out of the worst month of the calendar year and I thought it was a good month.  IMO there was enough to keep us occupied.  

 

Whew!  We made it.  September is past us.  That wasn't so bad.  

 

 

Now, it only gets better from now until late December, starting with Gravity.

Sadly, it looks like I'm right. There needs to be at least 193m made for the rest of the month to beat 2007 in admissions and I just can't see that happening. Bad Grandpa and The Counselor would need to go for a combined gross > 60m.

This is of curse assuming that the quarterly average is very high. I'm going with 8.38 (Q2 price).

Bad Grandpa and Counselor can totally do that. :)

Hobbit 3 will be lucky to hit $240m
