Who watches thrillers???
- In 2009 503 films were released and only 31 of them were suspense films
- Animation and Comedy films account for 52% of Box Offices in the Uk, while Thrillers account for a small 4% why this you say?
Well animations and comedy's target a very very wide audience, an animation can target ages 5-40, while thrillers are usually 15+ films and most 15+ cinema goers would most likely go and watch more popular genres such as horror and comedy.
Also it must be taken into account that a lot of cinema goers are well families usually parents and little children and parents would rather take their child to a child friendly animation i.e Toy Story 3 or a fun comedy like Big Momma's House 2 than a thriller like What lies Beneath.
- What Genre likes what Thriller???
Making it almost impossible to say a certain Gender is more interested in thrillers.
- After looking at many Age ratings in almost Different Thrillers i can conclude that most thrillers are generally targeted at older audiences rather than younger ones.
