Emotional Responses to Movie-Trailers Predict Individual Preferences For Movies and Their Population-Wide Commercial Success

Combining neuroscience measurements and machine learning, we extracted the emotional experience from brain activity from subjects viewing movie-trailers. We show that this decoded emotional experience is meaningfully related to the self-reported emotional experience, and that it can be used to predict individual preference, but also commercial success of these movies.
