How a successful movie is made : A study of domestic box office gross in USA (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete strävar efter att undersöka, med hjälp av linjär regression, om intäkterna för en film kan förutspås med hjälp av information känd innan en film släppts. De prediktiva variablerna togs fram utifrån ett dataset innehållande information tillgänglig på webbsidan IMDB. Filmerna delades upp i två grupper och två modeller skapades: En för filmer där en erfaren regissör och ledande skådespelare medverkade och en där erfarenhet inte beaktas. Resultaten visade att medan budget är den drivande faktorn bakom framgången för en film så kan medverkan av en erfaren regissör leda till en bättre modellering av hur stora intäkter en denna film kommer att generara.

Abstract [en]

This thesis seeks to examine, through the method of linear regression, if the profits of a movie can be predicted using information known prior to the release of the movie. The predictive variables were obtained from a dataset containing information available on the website IMDB. The films were split up into two groups and two different models were created: one for films with an experienced director and lead actor and one where experince wasn't taken into consideration. The results showed that while budget is consistently the driving factor for a films success, the involvement of an experienced director make predictions of success much easier.
