    194 - The Rise & Future of A24 in Data

    A24's box office hit 'Civil War' marks another landmark in their shift from indie to mainstream since its founding in 2012. Its recent $225M private equity financing raises questions about maintaining its independence.

Yet, parallels to past indie studios suggest a potential fate of acquisition and the end of A24 as we know it.

    Lee welcomes data journalist and pop culture lover, Daniel Parris, author of the Stat Significant newsletter, who has crunched the numbers to analyse the rise of A24 and whether it predicts trouble or further success in the future.
