The digit: 59

Red Eye Chicago - - Cheat Sheet -

Girls ran the world, or at least the box of­fice, in 2017. Ac­cord­ing to Box Of­fice Mojo, it’s been 59 years since the top three high­est gross­ing films of the year were all fronted by women. In 1958, those films were “South Pa­cific,” “Aun­tie Mame” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” This year, the big win­ners were “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Won­der Woman.”
