Japanese companies have been the biggest winners in the film industry over the last five years, according to a survey of global film executives.
In the latest data, the top 10 global film producers earned more than $1.1 trillion last year, a record high, with the top ten film companies in the U.S. making more than half the total.
The industry has been in decline for decades, with film production costs soaring, and competition from Chinese producers and digital content.
The United States still holds the largest share of the global film market, but it’s the U.-S.
film market that has been a top winner over the past five years.
The top 10 film producers in the United States, according the survey, are: 1.
Warner Bros. 2.
20th Century Fox 3.

The median film production cost in the industry was $1,000 per square foot, up from $1k in the previous survey, according Toonami, a company that tracks the industry.
The U.K., Australia, Canada and China also saw increases in their film profits over the years.
In China, the film producer’s share of global market share was 19%, up from 17% in 2015.
But the film market in the country has been shrinking.
The International Federation of the Film Industry said that the Chinese film market fell 8.5% in the fourth quarter from 2015 to 2016, the first drop since 2006.
And in 2016, China’s total film market was only $1 billion, down from $2 billion in 2015, according TOonami.
A lot of this growth has been driven by the film and TV industries.
In 2017, film and television producers made an estimated $4.3 billion in film and media revenue, up 11% from 2016.
The total film industry made $1 trillion in 2017, up 17% from the previous financial year.
