#2 Young Brendan Fraser, 1990s
#3 Partners In Crime
While most of us watch multiple films a year, if not every single week, the annual number of movies produced each year is staggering. In the US alone, in 2022, there were 1,691 films produced and released. Unless you devote every single day to watching 3 to four films a day, you will simply never be able to see them all.
And this is just in the US. That same year, India put out a staggering 1,361 films, while Mexico came in third, with 1,289 productions. While you absolutely should explore the cinematic work of other countries, it can be a bit overwhelming, when you realize that most countries have been putting out movies from before we were born.
#4 If You Start Lord Of The Rings, The Two Towers On December 31st At 21:13:19 You Will Start The New Year With Théoden Saying:
#5 50 Years. 10 Films
#6 This Is The Last Photo Taken Of Hachikō, A Japanese Akita Dog Remembered For His Unwavering Loyalty To His Owner
Hachikō belonged to Professor Eizaburo Ueno who lived in Shibuya and taught at Tokyo Imperial University during the early 1920s. Every day, Ueno would walk to Shibuya Station with Hachikō and take the train to work. Once he was done for the day, he would take the train back and return to the station at precisely 3 PM. Hachikō would always be there waiting patiently to accompany the professor home. One day, Ueno suffered a stroke and never arrived at the station. Hachikō went to the station every day for 9 years until his death in 1935.
However, in terms of pure revenue, no one comes even close to North America. The combined US and Canadian box office market was 25.9 billion dollars in 2022, over three times larger than its closest competitor, the European Union ($7.4 billion in 2022.) For better or worse, this is why cinema and Hollywood are roughly synonymous.

#8 Too Much Talent In One Pic. By Annie Leibowitz, 2003
#9 Rachel Weisz In ‘The Mummy’ (1999)
In the US, around seven hundred million movie tickets are sold every year, but this actually puts it in second place, behind the giant that is India. In the subcontinent, nearly one billion movie tickets are sold yearly, a testament to the number of films produced and the sheer loyalty of the nation's fans.

#11 Remember, Remember, 5th Of November!
#12 Robert De Niro And Leonardo DiCaprio Sharing The Big Screen Again After 30 Years For Martin Scorsese’s ‘Killer Of The Flower Moon’ (2023)
Indeed, while many local film productions do suffer from an influx of (predominantly) American films, it’s a testament to just how popular cinema is as a mass-market art form. Economists see the movie industry as incredibly competitive, a winner-take-all bloodbath between production companies. After all, while people will go to many films over the course of a year, it’s not that common to see more than one a day or even a week.
#13 Tonight… We Are All Lieutenant Dan
#14 Happy New Year
#15 Florence Pugh On The Set Of Midsommar (2019)
Unfortunately, this is also one of the reasons so many films now are remakes, sequels, prequels, or otherwise related to an existing property. If you don’t believe me, find the movie lineup of your nearest cinema and count how many feature films are truly new and untried stories or concepts.

#18 When Your Friends Tell You What You Did Last Night When You Were Drunk:
However, the flip side of this volatility is that smaller, often independent production companies can pull off smash hits if they release the right product at the right time. This uncertainty does at least push companies to make something new, albeit after they have exhausted their catalog of existing IPs.
