  Music, Money, Success & the Movies: Part One
Blockbusters aside though, there are many thousands of films produced each year worldwide which do well, make money, and create income opportunities for composers and songwriters, both in the initial year of release and for many years afterward.
Most successful motion pictures use hit songs to create a period flavor, establish a mood, give an actor a chance to sing, make people laugh, make people cry, elicit emotions, and create interest in the movie through successful soundtrack albums and hit singles.
Because the songs used over the opening credits of a motion picture many times reflect the theme or ambiance of the film, they are many times more important to the film than other songs used for background.

Spielberg and director/producer George Lucas (whose 1977 film Star Wars was the biggest blockbuster of the decade) are the filmmakers most closely associated with the blockbuster era.
The focus on creating blockbusters grew so intense that a backlash occurred, with critics decrying the prevalence of a "blockbuster mentality" and lamenting dearth of personal, small-scale films.

 Blockbuster motion picture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Blockbuster motion picture is a term used by the motion picture industry to describe any movie that has achieved $100 million in ticket sales.
Titanic, for instance, cost $200 million to produce; ticket sales of $100 million would have resulted in a $100 million shortfall, a financial disaster even though it would have technically been a "blockbuster" by this standard.
The analogy is that when a blockbuster motion picture is released, competing film ticket sales are flattened by public indifference.

Movies in the 1970s came in a wide variety, as the socially-conscious young directors that emerged in the late '60s grew in different directions, influenced by music, literature, and the nature of crime and war.

In fact, in a case involving the motion picture Batman and the accounting practices of Warner Bros., another Los Angeles Superior Court judge came to a quite different conclusion, holding that the plaintiffs had failed to prove that the studio's standard-form net-profits contract was unconscionable.
Thus, when a blockbuster motion picture receives widespread publicity for taking in $100 million at the box office, the film rental income actually received by the studio, and reported to the profit participants, is typically $50 million or less.

Coined by the British military during World War II, "blockbusters" were aerial bombs dropped on German cities during raids.
