Top 2023 movies shows diversity in Hollywood is paying off

The 2023 Hollywood movies demonstrate that diversity in casting leads to higher box office success, as evidenced by the UCLA Hollywood Diversity Report.

According to the 2023 UCLA Hollywood Diversity Report, films with diverse casts, including 'Creed III,' 'Scream VI,' and 'John Wick: Chapter 4,' significantly outperformed previous films in their franchise. Moreover, women and people of color were the major contributors to ticket sales, with 'Barbie' becoming the top-grossing film globally. Despite advances in screen diversity, challenges remain, particularly in the representation of female directors and Latino actors.
