Devising a Practical Model for Predicting Theatrical Movie Success: Focusing on the Experience Good Property
This study attempts to devise a new theoretical framework to classify and develop predictors of box office performance for theatrical movies. Three dependent variables including total box office, first-week box office, and length of run were adopted. Four categories of independent variables were employed: brand-related variables, objective features, information sources, and distribution-related variables. Sequel, actor, budget, genre (drama), Motion Picture Association of America rating (PG and R), release periods (Summer and Easter), and number of first-week screens were significantly related to total box office performance.
