RESEARCH:Cinema Audiences

Today we looked at some figures for UK cinema by genre and we found out that

1.      31 suspense films were released in 2009 and 503 released altogether last year.
2.      Action, animation and comedy films account for 52% of box office in 2009 in the UK, I think the reasons why these genres are popular because they appeal to a wider audience as they are family movies meaning it is appropriate for everyone to watch.
3.      I believe thrillers account for such a low proportion of UK Box Office because most thriller films are 18+ this is because they include a lot of violence and some psychological issues which can be disturbing for many younger viewers, and mostly teenagers go to cinemas to watch these movies, and this does not allow a great number of viewers.
