I think Hollywood is going to have to have a nice little paradign shift soon...

It would probably be better stated that 50% of a movie's gross is made in about 10% of a movies run. The opening weekend... This has worked nice for the past two years, you have movies being created just because it could have a good trailer...

But I wonder how much longer this can go on, it's almost like a mini dot com boom, you have companies making millions putting out horrible product, just because they know they can open big. (And on another note, a studio gets about 93% of the first week gross from the theater)

Seems to me the people will tire of this soon, and just start looking for good movies again. Though I could be wrong. Many just go to the movies for the sake of going to the moive, and they can put almost anything up on the screen.
