Award-winning writer-director Frank Darabont is the UK’s most inspirational filmmaker according to a new poll commissioned by IMAX as part of its Love Movies campaign. Researchers polled 2,000 adults looking at the way people feel about movies as well as their movie-going habits, revealing that the average Briton now watches four movies a week, equating to 208 every year.
Eileen Campbell, Chief Marketing Officer for IMAX, which commissioned the research to coincide with their new Love Movies campaign, said: “Movies have the power to inspire passion and fire up a range of emotions in people. This study gets under the skin of our love and obsession for cinema, revealing how movies can serve as a catalyst for many to find the courage to deal with important issues or provide that extra push to make the leap towards someone or something they’ve been searching for.
“Just as IMAX’s immersive movie experience transports cinema lovers into the world of the film, the survey shows that the extent with which people live and feel movies is often felt long after leaving the cinema.”
Other inspirational movies making the top 10 include much-loved It’s A Wonderful Life and the warm-hearted drama Rain Man featuring an incredible performance from Dustin Hoffman.
The survey was commissioned for the launch of the new IMAX ‘love movies’ campaign
