Study Finds Female-Led Movies Make More Money Than Movies Led By Men


A new study found that not only is more female representation better for culture as a whole, but it also leads to more box office success. For the study, Creative Artists Agency and shift7 collected data from films releases between 2014 and 2017 with budgets ranging from less than $10 million to more than $100 million. If a female was the first billed actor in the credits, the film was considered to have a female lead. According to comicbook.com, the data confirmed that within each budget range, these films perform better than films without a female as the lead.
