I have the same question [In reply to] Can't Post

I am in America but have also wondered why Americans and the American press judge a movie by domestic box office and ignore total box office. I have been told that Hollywood and the studios are American and that they judge by how much money a film makes here in America. If this is true, then they (the studios) are stupid given the fact that for at least the last decade, films make more money overseas then they do domestically. I don't think they are stupid. To them money is money and all money is good and a measure of if they will make a profit which to them is the bottom line. This can also be seen in the fact that movies spend less time in theaters these days. The amount going to studios decreases week by week; so, they want to get into the newer revenue sources as soon as possible: streaming, pay per view, Netflix, DVD etc.

                Well, yes, but the dollar's "worth" was higher back then. Imladris18 Send a private message to Imladris18 Mar 6, 7:28pm
                    If you ask anyone which made more, what are they going to say?// tsmith675 Send a private message to tsmith675 Mar 6, 7:36pm
                        I'd ask if they want the more relevant adjusted value, or dollar amount :) Imladris18 Send a private message to Imladris18 Mar 6, 8:12pm
