Extensive Domestic and Worldwide Box Office Data Powered by Box Office Mojo is Now Featured on the IMDbPro Site for Members

LOS ANGELES--()--IMDbPro (www.imdbpro.com), the essential resource for entertainment industry professionals, today revealed the movies that topped the U.S. box office in January 2019 and the upcoming February theatrical releases that audiences are most anticipating. This definitive data is derived from Box Office Mojo, a service of IMDbPro and the leading online source of box-office data, and the IMDbPro MOVIEmeter rankings, which are based on the actual page views of the more than 250 million monthly unique visitors to IMDb.

“With the new year fully underway, the January box office saw audiences continue to turn out for Aquaman ($120 million domestic gross in January and the highest-grossing DC Comics adaptation worldwide) while new releases such as M. Night Shyamalan's Glass (on its way to a $100+ million domestic performance on just a $20 million budget) and Dragon Ball Super: Broly (already ranking as the third highest-grossing anime title domestically of all-time) delivered strong box office performances,” said Brad Brevet, editor of the IMDbPro box office reporting service, Box Office Mojo. “Green Book took advantage of its five Oscar nominations, landing in the following weekend’s top 10 and has since topped $55 million at the box office and counting. Looking ahead, February’s new releases include two major animated titles, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, which opens Friday and is enjoying strong early reviews, and Universal and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World on February 22.”

“The IMDbPro list of most anticipated movies opening in February shows that audiences have a lot to look forward to this month — and that industry professionals should keep a close eye on box office activity and the signals it sends,” said Matt Kumin, Head of IMDbPro. “IMDbPro empowers members to stay ahead of the latest news and trends with detailed box office grosses and a full suite of tools on trending projects and industry professionals, including exclusive STARmeter and MOVIEmeter rankings and more than 25,000 in-development film and TV titles not available on IMDb.”
