  • Trilogies aan de kassa

    Pin it!

    Eén van de industrieën die zich niet veel schijnt aan te trekken van die opgefokte "economische recessie" is de filmwereld, en dan bij uitstek de grote filmstudio's in de Verenigde Staten. Zij verdienen bakken geld aan de productie van entertainment (voornamelijk voor de bioscoop maar ook met tv-series). Ze bieden werkgelegenheid voor miljoenen mensen, die met passie en toewijding hun taak vervullen.

    En gezien mijn interesse voor het cijfermatige en het analytische, ga ik met deze post de inkomsten van de trilogies van naderbij bekijken, via een rapport gepubliceerd in de boxofficemojo en de box-office cijfers in IMDB.

    Hieronder bevindt zich een lijst van de recettes uit de bioscopen in de VS. Verhuur én verkoop werden niet meegerekend – maar bij deze meeste succesvolle producties komt dit neer op hun bioscooprecette.

    Uiteraard zijn sommige van die trilogies reeds exponentieel uitgebreid, maar in deze analyse gaat het enkel om de eerste 3 films. Indrukwekkende nieuwkomers, waar het derde deel reeds in (pre-)productie is, worden aangeduid met een groene kleur. Ook de vervolgfilms in (pre-)productie op de trilogie zijn in kaart gebracht met hun respectievelijke box-office resultaat in het blauw, indien deze al bekend zou zijn. TV-films worden hier niet in beschouwing genomen.
