The Hollywood insider

Information is beautiful has developed a tool that allows you to explore data on over 1000 major films of the last eight years. It's facinating to see what films cost, the budget they recovered, and how they were rated by the critics. You can also alter the axis to compare different values. Using this tool you can see how in 2015 Sequels were a far safer bet for recovering your budget than original screenplays, but suprisingly remakes don't fare so well.
