Keep It Simple Stimuli: Brain-Vetted Elements of Movie Trailers Predict Opening Weekend Ticket Sales
We propose a novel method to predict movie ticket sales based on the stimulus complexity of the associated advertisements (i.e., movie trailers). We identify characteristics of movie trailers (e.g., semantic and visual clarity) that promote neural similarity (i.e., Cross-Brain-Correlation) among moviegoers at a commercial theater and foreshadow commercial success.
