2015 has been a mammoth year for cinema, with an overflow of sequels, prequels, revivals and finales, as well as the odd new film attempting to begin a new franchise, or reel in the Oscar voters. However, while breaking the $11 billion intake barrier for the first time in history may seem like a banner for success, that result may in fact be a little unrepresentative, as it appears that for every major box office success, others 'flopped' and succumbed to changing habits. The year's five biggest releases - three of which appear on my list - account for 62.5% of Hollywood's intake, showing a major disparity in success.
