two cents

Box office visualization

Totally great information visualization for how movies have performed over time. The strength in graphing info in this way (especially this one) is being able to present lots of info to be digested easily and at once. In that sense, Xach was very successful.

The only way I'd improve on this would be on rollover to show what the current weekend was out of the total amount to date (i.e. iron man 98.6m of 315.6m) to get a sense of how important an opening weekend (or any weekend) was for the total.

Love it.
