2019 Universal Preview

Universal Pictures accounted for 15% of box office revenue in 2018 for a total domestic gross of $1.8 billion and that was without a new FAST AND FURIOUS movie. With five movies grossing over $100 million, including MAMA MIA: HERE WE GO AGAIN and the long anticipated HALLOWEEN, Universal still made a lot of money off of critically maligned movies like THE GRINCH and JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM. In 2019, fans can look forward to HOBBS & SHAW as well as multiple Blumhouse horror movies. Plus, there are marquee movies from award-winning directors Tom Hooper, Danny Boyle, and Sam Mendes.
