Box Office Top 10
Created on April 14, 2015
Are you a movie lover and interested in the weekly rankings of box office movies? This is where you need to be. Just so you know, we do not rank movies ourselves. Our rankings are done according to statistics obtained from Internet Movie Database – IMDb.
According to WIRED , on IMDb, all films are given an overall rating out of ten. In a roundabout way, these ratings are derived from votes submitted by IMDb users, not movie critics. All registered IMDb users can submit a single rating – a number between one and ten – for any film on the website.
These votes are then re-jigged so that certain demographics (newly-registered users, for example) don’t disproportionately influence the overall ranking of the film. IMDb doesn’t disclose how it re-jigs these votes, but what does mean is that a film’s ranking is not quite an overall average of all its user scores, but it’s probably quite close.
Here’s this week’s top 10 movies according to IMDb.
