It’s been quite sometime since the film industry has experienced a banner year such as it did this year. The theaters set record numbers, not just in the summer, but throughout the year. The awards season seemed to be one of the most successful in recent memory with phenomenal winners in all aspects.
Where the film industry has really seen it’s increase is with the access of streaming movies. With more sources coming out and the ability to watch all online videos directly on their TV’s with the advent of smart TV’s and video devices the movie industry has never been more accessible.
There are many reasons for the increase in revenue and the biggest key has to be is that the money is being put back into the movies. Its not a case where the money is going all to the actors top price billing and there is nothing left for development. Actors salaries have seem to come down and are willing to take less for the good of the movie. a prime example is George Clooney who makes the movies he wants to make and more often takes a salary of scale so the film is never compromised and it has proved to suit him well as he might be one of the most respected people in Hollywood.
The second reason is the story and effects are being molded wonderfully and not nearly as much is being rushed out just for the sake of having it come out. The film makers are being given the time and resources they need to make the best product available. 3D has raised ticket prices but has not seemed to slow down audiences from flocking to the theater to see there favorite superheroes come to life right in front of them. While it still seems to be gimmick to some, there have been advances in the technology that have made the films look and feel better. A key example was Peter Jackson’s release of The Hobbit and a new speed of film and that seemed to be a smash success.
If this year is any sign of things to come, than movies fans have a lot of good things to look forward to.
