Why Scarlett Johansson's 'lucy' Strikes Blow For Women With Hot Box Office - Msn Movies News

"Movie-goers are sending Hollywood a message, and it couldn't be more clear: They want visite site more movies with women at the center of them," BoxOffice.com vice-president and senior analyst Phil Contrino told TheWrap. It's worth noting that when assessing movies made with and for women, we're not talking about audiences made up of just females. You don't see the sort of blockbuster grosses that "Catching Fire" and "Maleficent" have rung up without drawing plenty of males. This weekend's audiences for "Lucy" were split 50-50 between men and women, for example. Contrino believes that Hollywood's tin ear when it comes to female-driven projects is in part because of its largely male leadership. There are powerful women in key studio posts like Donna Langley at Universal, Sue Kroll at Warner Bros. and Amy Pascal at Sony, but they remain a minority in the meeting rooms.
