Short of the Week poses an interesting question with an even more interesting info graphic (above): Has Hollywood Lost its Way? From their site:
Much has been said over the last few days about the bleak year for theatrical films with year-end box office sales down 3.8% compared to last year and attendance down 4.7%. But there’s been less coverage of a bigger problem looming over the film industry — one that would be hard to blame on a bad year — the growing scarcity of original stories coming from Hollywood.
So sad. But perhaps the question isn’t whether or not hollywood is not making good films but whether or not people are watching them… This list is based on ticket purchases not film releases…
