Prediction of a Movie’s Success Using Data Mining Techniques
A lot of movies release every day. Predicting success of a movie is a complex task as various factors influence its performance on the box office. Since a huge amount of capital is involved in the production, marketing, promotion and distribution of movies, it has been a topic of interest not just for the viewers, but also for the media and production houses and all others who are involved in these processes since a long time now. So, we decided to perform a study on this topic. For the study, we are using the IMDB dataset. In this Internet age, online publicity plays a major role in the success of a movie, so we felt the need of including sentiment analysis of tweets related to movies in our study. We used a variety of data mining models to get predictions as accurate as possible.
