Summer Movie Wrap-Up: 2013's Winners And Losers

Winner: R-rated Comedies
Thanks to releases like The Hangover, Bridesmaids and Ted in recent years, R-rated comedies have dug out a nice little home during the summer months, and 2013 continues that trend. Things kicked off in May with Todd Phillips’ The Hangover Part III – which underperformed domestically, but wound up with a worldwide total over $350 million – and the season only got better from there. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s apocalyptic laugher This Is The End wound up making over $114 million globally on a tiny $32 million budget; Paul Feig’s The Heat was a $200 million-plus success at the box office; and Rawson Marshall Thurber’s We’re The Millers has already made over $115 million and is still going. Even Edgar Wright’s The World’s End (which just opened in the U.S. last weekend) has already made its small $20 million budget back and could keep going strong thanks to buzz and overwhelmingly positive reviews. It’s been a good year for funny movies with plenty of raunchiness, and hopefully it will remain a trend for many years to come.
