05:52 EDTVIAB, CMCSA, DIS, FOXAMore movies than usual to open this holiday season, WSJ reports
A dozen movies are set to open at 500 theaters or more between December 12 and 25, the highest number in recent time. Christmas is among the five highest-grossing weeks of the year at the box office and has been as high as No. 1. Total receipts in the U.S. and Canada are consistently higher than $300M, while in the average week theaters collect a little more than $200M. Still, people's movie time isn't infinite, and a surfeit of new titles could overtax even the most avid moviegoers, reports the Wall Street Journal.Reference Link
