Thriller Audiences- Who watches Thrillers?

1) How many suspense films were released in 2009? How many films were released altogether last year?
In 2009 out of 503 films released, only 31 were thrillers.
2) Action, animation and comedy account fro 52% of Box Office in the UK in 2009. Why do you think these genres are so popular?
Because a lot of children and teenagers tend to watch these types of movies. However when you look at the number of thriller films seen there's a big difference, this is probably because of the age restrinctions on thriller films.
3) why do you think Thrillers account for quite a low proprotion of UK Box Office takings (4% in 2009)?
Due to the age restrinctions
4) Looking at the 'genre by gender' diagram above, what information can be derived about Thriller audiences and gender?
Thrillers are usually seen as more of a male genre due to the sub genres of crime and action. However, thrillers also have a lot of suspence which by what the diagram tells us is more a female genre rather than a male genre.
5) Look at the age certificate for 10 of the films featured on the teaching blog. What does this tell you about Thriller audiences?
