ShowEast is proud to announce that global box office data leader, Comscore, will present the 2023 Domestic and LATAM Box Office Achievement Awards at this year’s convention to be held from October 23-26 at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel.
The Domestic Award is given to the movie that opened and played in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico from May 1st through Labor Day and earned the most box office of any movie during that period in those territories. Similarly, the International Award is recognized for the movie that opened and played in Latin America from May 1st through Labor Day and earned the most box office of any movie during that period in the LATAM region.
This year, both of the Comscore 2023 Box Office Achievement Awards will be bestowed upon Warner Bros. Pictures for “Barbie.” “Barbie” is notably the biggest industry film of 2023 globally and the largest grossing movie of all time in Warner Bros.’ 100-year history. The Awards will be presented during this year’s Opening Day Luncheon on Monday, October 23, 2023.
“We are very excited to be honoring Warner Bros. for Barbie both domestically and for the LATAM region at ShowEast 2023. This is the first time one film has received both awards,” stated Andrew Sunshine, Managing Director of ShowEast. “Being able to once again work with our partners at Comscore to present the Boxoffice Achievement Awards continues to be very rewarding.”
