2007: State of the Union with regards to the Motion Picture Industry

2007 broke box office records, yet it was from the
strength of a few movies in which a climatic trilogy
was concluded. In fact this year featured at least 13
movies that were the 3rd part of a trilogy.

Overall the motion picture industry lost money, with
"Grindhouse" being one of the biggest box office losers of
the year. The Quentin Taratino/Robert Rodriquez double
featured earned 25 million dollars at the box office,
but cost the fledgling Weinstein Studios an estimated
53 million dollars to produce.

It is a hard sale to motivate people to see big budgeted homages to films
that were considered trailer trash from the 1970s time of exploitation.
