Hollywood lessons learned from 2016 box office

StorySmack Episode #7

2016 Lessons Learned StorySmack

Yes, 2016 generated an all-time high in box office revenue, but when you adjust for inflation how successful was it, really? Is Hollywood heading for major crash, a-la the music business of the 90s and the publishing biz of the oughts?


We cover that in this episode, as well as:

  • What were the Top-10 highest-grossing films of 2016?
  • The influence of Chinese investors and the Chinese government on Hollywood.
  • What year set the record for attendance, not for revenue?
  • Why it’s better to root for the Dark Side.
  • The evil that is Herbie the Love Bug.

    Have to say I like how Scott said when watching all the SW films now we have to include Rogue One. So it’s TPM, AOTC, ROTS, RO, ANH, ESB and ROTJ. No mention of TFA 😉
