How to Make a Hollywood Movie

Every wonder how the make those big budget Hollywood blockbusters? While movies come in a seemingly endless variety of genres, there is what seems to be a pretty standard formula for how to make a big blockbuster Hollywood movie. Take a look at the infographic below to learn how to make a Hollywood movie successful.

Make a Sequel (or even better a trilogy)
There is a reason every movie these days is rarely stand alone. The costs of making 3 movies with the same cast and sometimes even shot at the same time (as in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit) are much lower than making three standalone movies. Basically you can make a six hour movie, chop it up into 3 parts, and release each part as a major Hollywood blockbuster; essentially tripling your money. This is one reason trilogies seem to be here to stay.

Make a Superhero Movie
Superhero movies are dominating the box office as of late. From Marvel’s Avengers to the upcoming DC Suicide Squad; it seems that no hero is too big or too small to get in on the action. It almost seems like studios are printing money with the latest craze of super hero movies and fans are willing to keep shelling it out with Marvel planning movies into the foreseeable future.
