Sample Movie Pro Trends

Each Movie PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online movie articles, videos and images. Examples:

Complicated Fable The original purpose of fairy tales is revisited with modern lessons Implications - For ages, fairy tales were used a device to teach children important lessons; in the modern age, the purpose of the fable persists, but the lesson is completely different. Today's fairy tale is packed with more complex lessons than their predecessors -- this is most famously seen with the retelling of Maleficent serving as a tale of non-romantic love and redemption. This speaks to the complexity of today's already-information-saturated child.
