Alright, this is a bit of a Hollywood studio glory story. Here we go.
According to IMDB News, Warner Brothers announced that on Sunday, July 25th, the dubB. Studios rocked it out to become the 1st film studio in Hollywood history to earn $1 billion at the domestic box office, with non stop movie action across to solid years in a row.
Adding to their modest efforts for Tinsel Town achievement in cinema, Warner Brothers also have crossed the billion-dollar threshold for eleven of the past twelve years.
Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution made the annoucement. Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” gave the studio the wings to reach this benchmark as the film has taken in $142.9 million to date.
The year began well for the dubB with Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes,” opening on Christmas Day last year with good box office earnings. Alcon Entertainment’s action adventure “The Book of Eli” also gave Warner Brothers a good lift. Bullish entertainment. Good to see.
