Movies with Conservative Values Flourish


Movies with at Least Some Strong Capitalist, Patriotic, Conservative

Values Are Surging at the Box Office in the United States and Canada


Movies with at least some strong capitalist, patriotic, conservative, and anti-socialist values are surging at the box office in the United States and Canada, according to a 17-year study of more than 4,700 movies.

Since 1999, the cumulative number of movies with such content has increased from only 24 in 1999 to 37 in 2008 and 83 in 2015, an increase of 54.2 percent from 1999 to 2008 and 124 percent from 2008 to 2015, with an overall increase of 246 percent from 1999 to 2015.

At the same time, the total cumulative earnings of conservative movies in the United States and Canada alone have increased from about $878.2 million in 1999 to $3.01 billion in 2008 to $7.86 billion cumulatively in 2015. That’s an increase of about 242 percent from 1999 to 2008, 161 percent from 2008 to 2015, and a whopping 795 percent from 1999 to 2015!

** Movies with Strong Conservative Content and Values*


Year Number of Occurrences Total Box Office
1999 24 $0.88 billion
2008 37 $3.01 billion
2015 83 $7.86 billion


In contrast to these statistics, the number of movies with at least some strong Anti-American, anti-capitalist, socialist, and other liberal/leftist values increased only 44% from 1999 to 2015, and earned much less money (only $0.831 billion in 2015 (compared to $7.86 billion)).

The 17-year study was conducted by Movieguide®, a pro-family consumers guide to movies and entertainment that’s been described by the New York Times as “the most conservative” review service on the Internet. Every year since 1991, Movieguide® has published a comprehensive content and financial analysis of the Top 275 or so movies released theatrically in America and Canada.
