BGB2023/BAGB2023: INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS GROUP PROJECT

To consumers like you and me, watching movies can be a relief to stress, a way to kill a boring weekend or a leisure activity with friends and family. To studios like Disney, Warner Brothers, or TriStar however, movies are products that determine their profit, loss and survival. According to Forbes magazine, in year 2012 revenues generated from box office films in USA was $10.8 billion while the international box office revenue was $23.1 billion. Although the USA’s domestic film market is big, the level of competition within the industry is also very stiff. Being able to tap into the global market therefore is crucial for USA-based film producers. This was evident for example in the case of Men in Black 3 which mad de approximately $177 million in the USA but collected $622 million worldwide. Nonetheless not all Hollywood movies are internationally successful. Your task is to uncover the recipe of success of a Hollywood movie in a video documentary. The details of your assignment are as outlined below:

Tasks: a) Choose an internationally successful Hollywood movie. The movie must be released in year 2013. b) Make a 15 to 30 minutes documentary of the movie. There is no specific format to the documentary but it has to contain the following: i. Some statistics on film industry (e.g. growth rate, revenue trend, trend in salary of actors/actresses). ii. Some statistics of the chosen film (e.g. cost of production, revenue in domestic market and international revenue). iii. Challenges that the movie had to overcome internationally and in Malaysia specifically. iv. International success factors (including how it countered the challenges identified above). v. All members of your team must be featured in the documentary.
