3D movies - Are they right for you

Right now it seems that no matter what most of us say, the 3D movies option is hurtling at us and not slowing down.  From home entertainment systems to movies only being offered in 3D at the movie theater or older movies being re-released in 3D, the consumer options are getting whittled down to either not going to some movies or taking the plunge, “at least this once.”

But the mentality of “at least this once” is what the industry is banking on.  Even if you never go see another 3D movie again after that one time, if they tap every single movie-goer at least once, then the marketing onslaught of 3D movies has worked to some degree.

As it was, 2011 saw the lowest number of movie attendee’s in 16 years.  Yet as a mere 1.28 billion customers coughed up money for a movie last year, in amongst all the dire headlines of declining movie attendance, folks seem to forget that “The overseas movie market has generated an all-time record of $13.53B in 2011.”

Yea… body counts are low, but prices are up, as are profits.

Cinema Static Top-10 Movies & Box Office NumbersAccording to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, a mere 1.28 billion movie-goers fessed up their hard earned cash to see movies in 2011.

This number is a decrease from 2010 by 4.4% and they report that this is the lowest number of movie-goers to attend movie theaters since 1995, when 1.211 billion folks went to the movies back then.

But that’s domestically speaking, here in the U.S..  Overseas (Worldwide) box office tallies are still a huge aspect of the income to any studio that captures our overseas movie fan brethren.

For example, from two of the top-10 movies out there, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 brought in $381 million in 2011, but worldwide it’s pulled in $1.3B.  Transformers 3 (Dark of the Moon) pulled in $352M, but worldwide it pulled in $1.1B.  And we’re not counting the home-entertainment market.
