The newsletter provides unbiased movie box office information for entertainment industry professionals, insiders, journalists, and movie lovers. This is how the film business does it.
In 2018, David A. Gross built a proprietary database covering the box office performance of 3,600+ wide release movies since 1997. The numbers looked good and the ideas were different from what the film industry was seeing.
Gross began sharing his thoughts, based on 35 years of experience in the theatrical movie business, with a few colleagues, friends, and press. They liked the independent and objective approach.
