Anyone interested in applying statistics to analyzing box-office data might be interested in a piece I wrote a few months ago on the relationship between genre, gender, and the amount of gross taken by a film during its three-day weekend in the UK. In short, films with female characters (e.g. romance films) take a lower proportion of their gross at the weekend than films with male characters (e.g. action, crime). You can read the full study at http://nickredfern.wordpress.com/2009/03/26/gender-genre-and-the-uk-box-office/.

Thanks for your comment, Nick. I look forward to reading your article- sounds fascinating. I've added your blog to the blogroll.
