The movie business is changing fast. The
opening weekend is becoming the big money-maker for the studios,
and for most movies, it's the audience that determines if a
movie will succeed or die. When six million moviegoers see a
film on its opening weekend, the studio makes 37 million
dollars, but it is the word-of-mouth advertising which
will keep the movie alive. Those six million people go and
tell their friends and co-workers about the movie, thus reaching
another 20 million people, and their recommendations will
basically determine if the movie is going to be seen by the rest
of the public. This is why some movies close after only a
few days in the theater, rather than a few weeks.
