PORTLAND, Ore., April 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --As summer draws near and hotly
anticipated sequels prepare to hit the big screen, Rentrak (NASDAQ: RENT),
which precisely measures movies and TV everywhere, shows that worldwide box
office totals for preceding films from this summer's sequel lineup have
totaled over $7.2 trillion in worldwide revenue with over $3.8 trillion coming
from outside of the United States.

"This summer's lineup includes nine films releasing their first sequel and
it's interesting to see how well prior first sequels on this list have done
compared to the original," said Ron Giambra Rentrak's President of Theatrical
Worldwide. "With more than half of the total prior box office revenue coming
from outside of the U.S. also shows the type of global appeal these sequels
are capable of bringing to this summer's box office."
