Showbiz Sandbox 509: The Five Stages of Box Office Recovery

After zeroing out for six months, the worldwide box office is roaring back to life, led by China and films like “The Eight Hundred” and “Tenet.” We’re joined by Robert Mitchell of Gower Street Analytics who helped develop a staged approach of measuring how the box office in various markets is rebounding and what to expect in the months and years to come.

Meanwhile Hollywood talent agents continue to migrate toward management firms, as the major agencies continue to furlough or layoff staff. Will some creatives choose not to have an agent at all moving forward?

Of course we also cover some of the week’s top entertainment headlines including how Nielsen has begun measuring streaming viewership by the billions of minutes, Tyler Perry goes on a production spree and a whole new way to (sort of) watch Netflix shows.
