31 suspense film and also 501 in a year
2)Action, animation and comedy account for 52% of box office in 2009. Why do you think these genres are so popular? I think these genres are popular because they appeal to the large target audience. Teenagers are more likely to watch animation and also comedy, action is tend to be more for a male population.

Thriller has a nishe audience, so it tends to more "older" teenagers.
4) Looking at the 'genre by gender' diagram on the teaching blog, what information can be derived about Thriller audiences and gender?
The 'genre by gender' diagram shows that males are more likely to watch horror, crime, action and sci fi films. Thrillers can easily be added to this list as it links with the genres.
Females are more likely to suspense, period and romantic films. Thrillers fit more into the males list. Therefore the audience to watch thrillers are more male viewers.
