The Ebb and Flow of Movies

From nytimes.com. This is a very cool way to visualize the spike in movie ticket revenue when movies are released in theaters, and then slow down quickly after the first week. The graphic covers 1986-2007, and when you look back you can only find a few movies that maintained high ticket sales for more than a couple weeks. Star Wars Episode 1 and Titanic both had high sales for almost 6 weeks. Highlight and click any "wave" to see the details for that movie.

Summer blockbusters and holiday hits make up the bulk of box office revenue each year, while contenders for the top Oscar awards tend to attract smaller audiences that build over time. Here's a look at how movies have fared at the box office, after adjusting for inflation.

Yeah, that's a great find. I'm really interested in how the news media use info-graphics to communicate vast amounts of information into an easy to understand graphic. Of course, the Web gives news outlets previously unattainable flexibility with info-graphics. It's fascinating, at least for me, to watch the evolving innovation in this discipline.
