No thanks to Hollywood, we are getting more female led movies. Who is behind this? Not Hollywood that's for sure, Audiences themselves are behind more movies being made with female leads.
The more successfully movies with female leads are the more movies will be made.
Maybe I'll go see Ghostbusters a 2nd time.... and a 3rd...
But Rappler cautions against thanking Hollywood for this change. They note, “Although the data shows that Hollywood is funneling more of its cash into female-led films, it’s worth mentioning that these trends are a reflection of audience tastes more than the risk appetite of movie executives. There’s no organized effort within the industry to develop more scripts with female characters or, more broadly, to encourage moviegoers to rethink their gender biases. It’s all happening organically. For such an outwardly liberal ecosystem, Hollywood is relatively conservative with its bets. If it makes money on certain types of movies, it’ll continue to make more.”
