--Only Rentrak Provides the Global Standard in Box Office Reporting--

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rentrak Corporation (NASDAQ: RENT), the global leader in box office measurement, today announced the worldwide weekend box office estimates for the weekend of Dec. 1, 2013 as compiled by the company's Box Office Essentials™ and International Box Office Essentials™ theatrical measurement services.

As the trusted standard for all studio box office reporting, Rentrak provides intelligence into overnight theatre-level reporting across the global theatrical market. Coupled with the official reported data, studios are able to analyze admissions and gross results in over 50 territories using Rentrak's suite of products.

Rentrak's Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian commented, "Lionsgate's 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' had much to be thankful for with its weekend global take of $167 million, thus bringing its worldwide revenues to an astonishing $573 million. As the film continues its rollout into more countries, the Jennifer Lawrence box office juggernaut shows no signs of slowing down and has a real shot at eventually joining the $1 billion global box office club. The Walt Disney Studios also had a tremendous week, passing the $4 billion mark in global box office for the first time in its history."

The top-12 domestic weekend box office estimates listed in descending order, per data collected as of Sunday, Dec. 1, 2013 (3-Day) are below.

  1. Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The - Lionsgate - $74.5M
  2. Frozen - Disney - $66.7M
  3. Thor: The Dark World - Disney - $11.1M
  4. Best Man Holiday, The - Universal - $8.5M
