The movie industry is a highly dynamic industry. The uncertainty involved due to the involvement of various factors in determining the box office success makes it even more ambiguous.
Unlike other products, the shelf-life of a movie is very less. The box office return during the first weekend largely determines the success of the movie. The goal of this project is to build a model to predict the first weekend box office return of movies based on various factors like release time, budget, presence of Oscar actors etc.
