Where is your proof that backs up that statement? We can't find it. How come did you? Show me one!
I simply ask for actual proof, not the hearsay being offered, whether it be in figures or general statements released by the industry, showing I have been misinterpreting all that has been submitted - not speculation or mathematical calculations.
But THAT is exactly what you just did above. You have NO proof that 3D attendence dropped in 2010 yet you say it did.
So provide a link that SPECIFICALLY says; " 3D movie attendence dropped in 2010 versus/as compared to 2009."
Others and I have posted numerous articles and interviews in which a drop of attendance for 3D is extensively acknowledged and that the extra revenue generated specifically from those higher ticket prices despite the decrease in 3D attendance as well offset the otherwise drop in overall box-office profit.
No you haven't. NO ONE has. There has been a drop in TOTAL TICKETS SOLD (attendence) for 2010, but there is NOTHING that says that either there were less 3D tickets sold or that 3D attendence dropped in 2010.
While one specific article which included the statement from that Sony executive is no longer available , I'll try finding it from another news source. But since I have been alluding to that executive talking about the business aspects of dwindling attendance regarding 3D films (saying numbers were nice if one didn't care about money but that in the case of 3D, less wasn't necessarily bad) please do the same with statements from others. And though it is thought I misread his statement, I also ask that since there is no disagreement the amount of revenue generated from 2D films has decreased due to the drop in ticket sales and would therefore want to know what else was that Sony Executive talking about ?
Produce the whole article including the link. You have already proved you have misinterpreted data and what is being said.
Those and other statements I did not make up. If I misunderstood them in regards to 3D as suggested, again please just introduce evidence in the form of professional articles or specific box office attendance figures for 3D to show me where I made the mistake. Just don't provide speculation to counteract what has been submitted as actual fact on the park of the industry. Otherwise, I am just wasting my time going back and forth with you guys on this point.
THERE ARE NONE! There are NO 3D movie attendence stats available. You have to do some math to get to the answer.
