Manufacturers of large movie studios do not go with the occupation of new projects, only to Talent, but have also become the question: How popular is an actress? Guaranteed me exactly this actress a large audience?

What is the effect of the Cast actually has on the success of a film at the box office, it is hard to assess: it Would have been a gefloppter Film with a different cast, perhaps more successful?

Also expensive, highly paid stars have not brought so many movie in the past, the hoped-for attention, a lucrative box-office takings, which would have justified the high financial production costs. The business magazine “Forbes” publishes every year a list of actors who have proved to be the true box office poison.

Mismatch between the Gage and sales

Among the overpaid actors, Gage stood in stark disproportion to the revenue of the film, included Sandra Bullock, Adam Sandler, and the formerly Man Sexiest Alive, Johnny Depp. For the works of the Studios of 2016, took only $ 2.80 for every to be paid cash dollars.

The Ranking is of course no indicator of quality. In 2016, Leonardo DiCaprio was not on place eight of the dreaded “Forbes”-list, because his films “The Revenant” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” brought to the box office the hoped-for sales. For both roles, DiCaprio was nominated for the Oscar, for “The Revenant” he took him as “Best actor” to take home.

Strong woman role: Wonder Woman even sends Batman and Superman in the second row.

To be able to in the selection of Cast and, in particular, the lucrative film materials, safe decide, should the film of interest to producers, especially in the United States published a study, according to movies, in which there are strong women’s roles, at the box office particularly well.

350 films from the years 2014 to 2017 were used, of which 105 cinema productions, women in the leading roles, played. Divided into five categories according to the production budget, in all divisions, respectively, films with female main characters at the top of the box office results.

The statements of the study are solely put into perspective insofar that among the largest one-player many Comic follow find film adaptations of the publishing houses Marvel and DC, could also be rich with male super heroes like “Iron Man” and “Thor” a whopping sales once.

Stereotypes do not pay

But also in successful movies with male main a change in roles is evident. For the study, also the non-scientific Bechdel-Test was applied, the female roles valued in feature films and on three questions-based: there Are roles for at least two load-bearing woman? They talk to each other? They talk about something other than a man?

Between 2014 and 2017, achieved eleven films grossing over one billion dollars, including “Jurassic World,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron”. Not all women are in the foreground, however, all of the eleven films passed the Bechdel Test-a sign that stereotypical representations of gender roles, pay.

The study is based on a survey of the talent Agency CAA on the relationship between sales success and ethnic diversity from the year 2017, which was complemented in the course of the “Time’s up”movement with the new data.

A few movies that have also achieved thanks to its strong images of women of outstanding box office results, can be found in our photo gallery.
