If you’re anything like us, you get just a wee-bit excited (read: pretty damn hard) when you see awesome charts. And if those awesome charts happen to be about Hollywood data, well then – there’s just no self containment. Enter in analyst Horace Dediu Farshad Nayeri’s analysis of Hollywood box office trends from 1975 to the present. He presents data on genre, time of year, scope of movie, distributor to give a full picture of how this town really functions.
