WikiTrend.org: Traditional entertainment is trending downward
The trends-spotting collaborative is seeing major changes in the film and television industries
Sequels continue to trend as a commodity in the film business. Studios are looking to cash in on previous hits with familiar characters and situations. The sequel business is so popular, in fact, that the book publishing industry is also trying their luck with faster story continuations. Demand trends at the box office are also changing the types of movies that are being made. Traditional romantic comedies are not getting green lighted as frequently, as studios look to cash in on big budget action movies.
Television viewing habits are also changing. It is a well-known fact that cable is on the downtrend, as subscribers opt away from controlled cable options and limited viewing times. Instead, viewers are opting to find pirate copies of shows online. Binge watching is also on trend, as customers are using streaming services to watch countless episodes consecutively, in disregard for traditional television schedules.
