I will GLADLY pay $15... or even $20 movie ticket if it's QUALITY movie. They should at least try to make 5-10 quality movies per year instead of 30 garbage movies.
Yes but number of people who can produce (directors, writers etc..) those kind of movies are low, and producing a movie takes around 1-2 years from beginning to end. For example you dont see a Spielberg movie each year, how many movies James Cameron have? George Lucas doesnt even make new movies anymore. Peter Jackson doesnt make one movie a year either (list can go on) On the other hand studios are required to put a certain number of movies theaters every year because they all have deals with theater companies as distributors. Otherwise dont you think they would love to bring movies that is going to turn into blockbusters like the movies you told all years long?
So when they can not do it, they do the next best thing. They put the materials (romance, violance, high tech effects etc..) known as better selling in the movies for increasing their chance of profit. They would only stop when it stop selling .
Increasing the prices is not a solution either because many families may not be able to afford paying 60-80 dollars for a movie night.
So number of great movies will not increase anytime soon. But if you want to see less romance in average quality movies then showing them romance doesnt sell anymore may work. The problem is, romance still sells.
