SOME FACTS ABOUT THE FILM INDUSTRY YOU COULD CONSIDER:
  1. NO film 'grossed' (took in from total cinema ticket sales) over £50m in 2013
  2. Only TWO of the top THIRTY UK cinema box office hits of 2013 were British, including Les Miserables which is only marginally 'British'
  3. The rest are American!
  4. The combined cinema takings (box office) of all films released in the UK in 2013 was £1.17bn - its a big business!
  5. Of the current top ten at the UK box office, only THREE have made over £10m since their release
  6. If a film is budgeted over £10m, it almost certainly needs to include factors which will help it appeal to audiences in the US and elsewhere outside of the UK
  7. The 'Gant rule' (which is generally fairly accurate!) states that a US box office hit will make around 10 times as much money as a UK box office hit
  8. You can generally multiply the number of screens by 10 too!
  9. As Disney's $250m mega-flop John Carter showed, there are NO guarantees in the film business, no matter how many stars or how much money you throw at a film - especially if the marketing is as messed up as it was for this film!
  10. However ... as 2008's £10m budget Slumdog Millionaire showed, you can sometimes make serious box office despite picking unpopular genres, unknown cast and unlikely settings!
Surprised to find this...
