The biggest movie stars of the past and future are more important than ever to the fate of film, and they’re all on the verge of being ushered out of the industry, according to a new study.
The study, by researchers at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business, looked at the movies that have made the most money in the last five years.
The results are pretty interesting.
The most popular movies of the last decade, including “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” are on the way out, and that includes the most popular films of the next five years, as well.
“The most important stars are still the ones who make the movies, even if they’ve moved away,” said lead author Michael Pacey.
“We are seeing a shift away from the star-driven culture that has defined the past two decades.”
The study looked at movies released in 2016, 2017 and 2018, the first three years of the current decade.
The researchers looked at gross revenues, the amount of money a film makes, gross domestic profits and ticket sales.
“A lot of the stars are gone, and we’re seeing a dramatic shift toward stars who are the creators,” Pacey said.
“For some of them, it may be an artistic decision, but for many it’s a financial one.
It’s also a business decision.
They’re taking on a much bigger responsibility, not just for the movies they make, but also for their legacy.”
The number of stars in the movies industry is decreasing, according the study.
“Over the past five years the number of directors has declined by over 50 percent,” Payson said.
The biggest stars in Hollywood have left the industry in the past few years, with the likes of Steven Spielberg, James Cameron and James Gunn all retiring, but many are expected to return to the industry.
The researchers examined the top-grossing movies in the United States, from 2010 to 2020.
The top five grossing films in the U.S. in 2020 were “Captain Americans: The First Avenger,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.
2″ and the “Thor: Ragnarok” movie.
“There’s no doubt that the stars of these films are important, but we’re also seeing that the film-making power of these stars is diminishing,” Pitzer said.
