TARGET AUDIENCE

Romantic Comedies & The Hispanic Moviegoer

VARIETY: Univision’s Peter Filaci presented statistics such as Hispanics contributing 19% of US. box office revenue while representing 17.5% of the population; the 18-49 demographic will see an increase of 5 million Hispanic consumers by 2024, far larger than any other demographic; and that Hispanics are more likely than non-Hipanics to see a movie on its opening weekend by margin of 47% to 37%.

VARIETY: One of the reasons that the summer of 2014 has been so catastrophic, with box office grosses down 18 percent, is the glut of indistinguishable product. Every movie, from “Transformers 4” to “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” feels like a photocopy of something that came before it. But the biggest profit margins aren’t always tied to CGI or comic book stories. For proof, look no further than the weepy melodrama “The Fault in Our Stars,” which has so far grossed $263 million worldwide despite its tiny budget of $12 million.
