How to underestimate Bond's influence: a chart

Channel 4's "The Ultimate Film" counted down the most successful 100 films to show in UK cinemas ever.
They rank according to attendances...

#90 You Only Live Twice 1967
Estimated Admissions 8.3m


#80 Die Another Day 2002
Estimated Admissions 8.58m


#69 Live And Let Die 1973
Estimated Admissions 9m


#61 Moonraker 1979
Estimated Admissions 9.41m


#34 The Spy Who Loved Me 1977
Estimated Admissions 12.46m


#27 Goldfinger 1964
Estimated Admissions 13.9m


#18 Thunderball 1966
Estimated Admissions 15.6m


Looks pretty shitty huh? From the 20 Bond movies, only 7 got the top 100...

That's not difficult at all! Just think about it for a minute,... what do they do? they check according to attendences which looks pretty objective, right? no inflation and such...

WRONG, this is even worse, you can at least adapt inflation but not this.
What's wrong with this? At the start of the movie-making industry, who went watching? Average Joe? No! the rich, who could afford it and mostly only once.

It is only the last few years that going to the movies has become a "hobby" or something that is considered a normal "hanging out-time", which is a very big contrast with the start when it was very elite.

Seeing that Thunderball managed to get 15.6 million people is admirable, but it looks much more powerful when you realise that this was established in 1966; most movies get already 10 million at minimum these days...
