So here we are, basking in the glory of the film industry’s biggest box office year in history. But in the back of our minds, we know that come the end of 2016 the media is going to be bagging us about the 4% drop (or whatever it may be) in box office results in comparison to the results of 2015. No doubt they will be talking doom and gloom and predicting the demise of cinema and all the usual stuff. This got me thinking: Why can’t every year be a Star Wars year? How do Star Wars years come about? And what is the best way to make sure that every year is a Star Wars year? With help from our data scientists at Movio, we've taken a look at what's happening with box office numbers and attendance in general.
