The Big Six - Top 6 Major Film Studios in the Movie business

When you watch a movie, either it be at the cinema or in the ease of your own home, it's seldom you absolutely think about where the movie was produced and how each film firm secured the ownership to the movie you're watching on the screen. The movie firm is extremely competitive. The six major film companies discussed below consist of 90 percent of the Us and Canadian box office revenue. If you're pondering a career in film, you may want to pay very close concentration to the statistics below.

And while there are a few "mini-majors" still turning a profit in the industry (Lions Gate Entertainment and Mgm for example), it's fairly difficult for film companies to stay afloat while contentious with these extremely prosperous empires.

Below you will find the six major film companies (also known as "The Big Six") and a brief report of each:

1. Warner Bros. Pictures. Comprising a whopping 19.7 percent of the Us/Canadian store share (2007 figures), Warner Bros. Pictures is the biggest player in the film industry. Securing the ownership to major films like Harry Potter, Superman, Batman, The Matrix and Star Wars have made Warner Bros. The No. 1 name in the business.

2. Paramount Pictures. With 15.5 percent of the Us/Canadian store share (2007 figures), preponderant Pictures continues to be one of the most prosperous film yield companies in the world. Star Trek, War of the Worlds, the Mission Impossible series, Transformers and Tropic Thunder are just a few of the favorite films produced by preponderant Pictures.

3. Walt Disney. One of the most preponderant film yield companies in the history of the business, Walt Disney now holds 15.3 percent of the Us/Canadian store share (2007 figures). With extremely prosperous movies like Pirates of the Caribbean, National Treasure, Meet the Robinsons and Enchanted, there's no doubt that Disney will continue to play a key role in the industry for years to come.

4. Columbia Pictures. Comprising 12.9 percent of the Us/Canadian store share (2007 figures), Columbia Pictures remains a big player in the business. Some of this company's recent successes consist of Casino Royale, The Da Vinci Code, the Spider-Man series and Step Brothers.

5. Universal Studios. 12.2 percent of the Us/Canadian store share (2007 figures) belongs to Universal Studios, which continues to make millions for the film industry. With major hits like the Bourne series (Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum), The American Pie series, Knocked Up, American Gangster and The predicted Hulk, it's very clear that Universal Studios knows what it takes to make money in this industry.

6. 20th Century Fox. Also known as "Twentieth Century Fox," this extremely prosperous movie yield firm makes up 11.9 percent of the Us/Canadian store share (2007 figures). Some of the biggest and most prosperous movies from this empire consist of the X-Men series, Mr. And Mrs. Smith, Star Wars Episodes Ii and Iii, and the overwhelming Four.

Once again, if you're looking for a career in the film industry, the six companies listed above are the cream of the crop. If you have the chance to work for one of these companies, we wouldn't suggest passing it up.
