Cinema viewing figures for films by country, in millions
The table compares the number of audiences in millions who enjoyed four types of movies such as action, romance, comedy and horror in four different countries- India, Ireland, New Zealand, and Japan. The table also shows the audience total for each of the four given countries.
The overall trend can be seen that Indian people watch more movies in cinema than people in other three countries, while Japanese people are the least in terms of their number of watching movies in cinema halls. The other significant trend is that the action movies are the most favourable movie type among people in these four countries. The total numbers of viewers are around 30 million and in each country, it is around 7.5 million. In Japan and India , horror movies are the least popular movie genre- the total number of audience are 2.5 and 2.2 million respectively, while comedy movies are the least enjoyed in New Zealand with the total number of viewers around 3.9 million.
On the other hand, romance movies are less popular in Ireland but in India, they are the second favourable movies. From this evidence, we can conclude that horror movies are the least preferred movies then the comedy in the second least preferred type while action movies are the most popular and romance movies in the second most watched movies.
