BOX OFFICE PREDICTIONS
As we do every Friday, Box Office Predictions (brought to you by AMC Theatre).. This is the part of the show where the panelists make their predictions of what movies and in what order will top this weekend’s box office.
Raymundo writes: Hello Crew, A few weeks back you were talking about how many people that go to film school don’t become directors or involved in making movies. On another show you mentioned that most people that become big names in Hollywood is because they know someone in the industry. Does having a BA or AA matter at all? Are degrees something that studios take into consideration? Should people not bother going to school and just make small films in hopes to make it big someday?
Shahrukh Ali writes: Hello Collider! You often talk about ‘Character Development’ when you analyze movies. Do you mean a character which enjoys enough screen time will always be a well developed one? Best regards…thanks and keep up the great work…
