Generally, a ﬁlm will move up or down in rank during each week of its run. The length of occupancy time in each rank is a random variable and we place no restrictions on this stochastic process, letting the data determine the statistics of survival in rank. In order to have a long life, a ﬁlm can achieve high rank and occupy several ranks before death, or it must spend a long time at low rank or ranks. This latter path to a long run seems unlikely and the data conﬁrm this. A few ﬁlms will achieve high rank in their ﬁrst week, but most will not.
We found that β2 was signiﬁcantly different from zero at the 1 percent marginal signiﬁcance level in all of the estimated regressions. Thus, the distribution of prizes is highly convex in the rank. 4. 74 GLS √ Rank Notes a Indicates marginal signiﬁcance level ≤1 percent. b Dummy variables were included for each week in the sample except the ﬁrst week. The set of weekly dummy variables was signiﬁcant at the 5 percent level in each regression equation. Dependent variable is weekly box-ofﬁce revenue in thousands of dollars.
C Estimates of explanatory variables are reported as time ratios. d Standard errors are conditional on σ . e t -statistics are for the null hypotheses that the parameters equal unity. proxy for the total number of screens playing the ﬁlm, and the ﬁlm’s numerical rank decrease survival time. After its early weeks, a motion picture begins to lose rank and it becomes more vulnerable to replacement by the exhibitor with another motion picture. If a ﬁlm is widely released initially, it may die quickly if it dilutes revenues among many theaters.
