In the past couple of years, we’ve gotten a number of big-budget female-led films, with the biggest being 2017’s Wonder Woman, which managed to rake in a whopping $820 million at the worldwide box office.
In today’s world, where we are surrounded with male-led superhero films such as Aquaman, Black Panther, or Deadpool 2, it is certainly nice to see the women come in to showcase all their incredible talents. Now, thanks to a new study, it seems that the female-led movies actually perform better than the male-led ones at the box office, specifically during the 2014-2017 time period.
Producer Amy Pascal spoke on the recent findings, saying
“This is powerful proof that audiences want to see everyone represented on screen.”
