The Wrap reported, Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer and Vice Chairman Michael Burns said it was consistency and their team’s effort that made the difference.

“We continue to do more with less, maintaining our commitment to a disciplined financial model that is focused on limiting production capital at risk,” they said in a statement. “We’re especially pleased to achieve contributions from our entire portfolio of films this year, from Lionsgate’s ‘Catching Fire’ and Summit’s ‘Now You See Me’ to Pantelion’s ‘Instructions Not Included’ and Codeblack’s ‘Kevin Hart Let Me Explain.’”
