Congratulations, You are on to the right track OP. They use the figures to make us think that others like the movie, they use the money made by these films to make us feel that if we go to the show that we are like others and not different. People have been conditioned over a long time to feel that we must think as others do or we are not normal. This is the biggest conspiracy of them all.
