What are the 5 strongest genres at the box office today?

Recommended Posts

Relative to the at home popularity, I imagine horror would score really well (same goes relative for the resource needed)

 

In 2021 by the numbers break down:

Rank Genre Movies 2021 Gross Tickets Share
1 Action 45 $2,340,543,322 255,239,168 51.24%
2 Adventure 27 $789,147,690 86,057,535 17.28%
3 Horror 49 $580,589,442 63,313,994 12.71%
4 Comedy 59 $360,877,351 39,354,106 7.90%
5 Drama 119 $234,202,898 25,540,072 5.13

 

latest normal year

Rank Genre Movies 2019 Gross Tickets Share
1 Adventure 47 $3,824,655,753 417,538,823 33.98%
2 Action 55 $2,897,574,987 316,329,127 25.74%
3 Drama 229 $1,386,938,422 151,412,394 12.32%
4 Thriller/Suspense 53 $1,126,925,762 123,026,805 10.01%
5 Horror 41 $810,478,370 88,480,157 7.20%

 

If we go in more specific type than horror/action genre, but more like a class of movies like your example.

 

The Pixar/Dreamwork 3d animation style (now took by everyone else including Disney) is a strong one, the disney classic remake genre for what is left classic wise, the 80s/90s classic semi-remake nostalagia a la Ghostbuster/Scream

Adventure is a strange category. It's mostly just kid's animation.  I think that it should be considered the kid's animation genre. Stuff like Star Wars and Jumanji could easily go into action instead.

In all seriousness, Superhero movies imo have transcended "genres" a long time at this point.

 

Guardians of the Galaxy is as much of an adventure movie / Space Opera / Comedy as it is a Superhero movie.

 

Captain America: The Winter Soldier id argue is more of an action thriller that just poses as a Superhero movie.

 

Aquaman is a straight-up Comedy.

 

The Batman is as much of a crime thriller as it is a Superhero film.

 

What does the term "Superhero genre" even mean at this point? Id even argue that those films adapting different gernes like comedys, action thrillers etc into them led to the decline of "classic" genre films like pure comedys.

Okay, let’s go:

 

1. Superhero (Ya got yah Marvel, yah DC, yah MorbiusSweep)

2. Family (While I do think kids animation is a big thing in the states, I don’t like calling animation a genre when it’s a medium. Also you can fold your Sonics, Dick Pik and shitty Disney remakes in here too!)

3. Action/Adventure (The fast movies, the Dino movies @Brainbug the Dinosaur Will stan to kingdom come, whatever the Rock does, most tentpoles fall under these)

4. Sci-fi 

5. Horror
