Film slate and money

Two recent statistical reports about film as an investment provide very encouraging news..and should be read by potential investors.

The first is the MPAA 2015 Theatrical Market Statistics Report. It clearly demonstrates that worldwide box office sales have increased 9% over 2015, and have steadily risen 18% since 2011. More importantly it shows that the US box office sales have reached 11.1 billion, an increase of 8% over 2014, which was a down year, and marking an solid increase since 2006, when US sales were $9.2 billion. Movies sell!

But the investor wants to know if movies make profits … and according to the April 7, 2016 report by, they do! Slated analyzed 1600 films released between 2010-2015, and found that no matter the budget of the film, profit was seen. In fact, it states “The overall investment in film rivals that of Silicon Valley…..When it comes to theatrical releases, it turns out that all budget sizes have shown overall profits.” And then it notes….”that the $5-million-and-under tadpoles almost match the the investment returns of their supersized predators at the box office.
