The determinants of box office revenue: a case based study: thirty, low budget, highest ROI films vs. thirty, big budget, highest grossing Hollywood films

Abstract : This paper investigates the determinants of box office revenue in motion picture industry on a case base study. Thirty highest grossing low budget ROI movies, are compared with thirty highest grossing Hollywood - high budget movies made in the history of cinema. It is believed that the characteristics due to the budget difference between these two samples affect the way their financial success path is driven. While the descriptive data is evidently showing us some clear facts and overlaps with the literature and our expectation, the simple regression part show only two variable the budget and release date are in a significant positive correlation with box office revenue, the other ten determinants found to be insignificant.
