Remember that time when Dan Humphrey was so sure Blair Waldorf would never actually see him as anything more than a friend so when she shows up at his loft he automatically assumes she’s back with Chuck, but then she gives him a ‘no’ that borders the line of incredulity because why would he think she was there because of that? And then Dan Humphrey blinks in confusion because he certainly can not and will not believe that she’s there for THAT reason and he actually sighs because holy shit, could it be that there’s a teeny, tiny possibility that she might like him too? And her smile and slight eyebrow raise is almost screaming “Yes, idiot. I do like you too. God, Humphrey, do I really need to be this obvious? Fine. Look at my glowing face looking back at you. Is that a sign that could possibly mean anything to you?” and then the entire Dair fandom died that day ^^

Not only does the data show that young people in general are going to the theater less with the largest drop (17%) occurring in the sought-after 18 to 25 demographic, but it indicates that movies that skew toward a male audience are performing worse than ever. That’s a big problem for Hollywood, considering that their male-oriented franchises seem to be garnering less female viewers than ever, too.

Could they be tired of seeing white dudes save the world? It certainly seems like it, as over time from Spider-Man 3 to Amazing Spider-Man 2, the webhead audience has gone from 54 to 61% male, and the Transformers movies have been following that trend with a now 64% male audience. In the old wisdom, that would’ve been great news, because those demographics were thought of as an endless fountain of money and numbers like those would’ve been seen as evidence that “girls don’t like sci-fi/comic book/[insert genre here] movies.”

But with both of the most recent entries in those franchises also hitting franchise-low domestic gross numbers, it’s well past time to rethink that and work on bringing back the female audience. The male audience isn’t cutting it, and women are getting tired of movies that don’t speak to them or accurately represent them.
