Movieguide.org provides some statistics of note:

  • www.movieguide.org says in a June 28 report that the number of movies with Christian, redemptive content reflecting a Christian biblical worldview has increased from 10.38% of the major movies released by Hollywood and the entertainment industry in 1991 to 54.51% in 2009, up from 47.8% in 2007.
  • Movies with very strong Christian and redemptive worldviews averaged $65.3 million per movie in North America from 2005 through 2009, but movies with very strong negative or Anti-Christian worldviews only averaged $23 million during that time.
  • R-rated movies among the Top 25 at the Box Office in North America have decreased from 12 in 1996 to only two in 2009.
  • Movies marketed to teens have shown a steady decrease in the amount of foul language, from 35 obscenities per movie in the 1980s to 25 in the 1990s to 16 from 2000 through 2009.
