This graphic shows the budgets, profits and losses for Hollywood movies released from 2007 to 2011, sorted by absolute profits. A green top to the bar represents a profit, and a red top represents a loss.
The colour of the lower part of the bar corresponds to the movie genre. The bar width is determined by audience ratings for the movie on rottentomatoes.com.
I submitted this graphic as my entry to the third Information Is Beautiful Awards challenge: http://www.informationisbeautifulawards.com/2012/01/challenge-of-the-stars/
