Global box office revenue hit a new all-time high of $37.7 billion in 2015, a significant increase of 4.2% over 2014’s total of $36.2 billion. The increase was driven by admissions and box office growth in most countries, and would have been even higher had it not been for exchange rate fluctuations between the US dollar and South American countries and (to a lesser extent) between the Rouble and the Euro.
