MADRID – Adding another major market crown to No. 1 rankings in the U.K. and France, Warner Bros. topped Spanish distributor charts in 2013 for the forth year running, punching a 17% market share.
Universal came second, its movies taking 14% of Spain’s total box office.
Unlike France, one U.S. Warner title towered over the rest in Spain, a sign of now far-more-selective cinema-going in the country: “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” grossed €14.3 million ($19.4 million) in 2013 off a Dec. 13 bow.
