Report: Nation Likely To Have Fewer More Violent Movies In Future
By Edwin McRobotface
WASHINGTON—Warning that the number of violent movies could only rise even more as studios began to release more violent and disturbing content, a report published Monday by the Bureau of Justice Statistics revealed that the U.S. population is likely to have fewer violent movies in the future. “The current trend of releasing more and more violent films has already led to a precipitous drop in the number of violent movies in the United States,” said lead author Steven Kot, adding that the nation’s population had already surpassed the threshold where more and more violent movies were released for the first time and were on their way to crossing the line into the category of movies that were as violent and disturbing as anything released in the past. “This means that by 2060, the number of movies released in the U.S. will be virtually unchanged. The only thing that’ll be different about these movies will be the violent content, which will include scenes of actual actual guns, knives, and bloody, blood-soaked bodies.” The report also went on to say that the number of violent movies in the U.S. will only increase in preparation for a forthcoming wave of films that will be even more violent and more disturbing.
