DZ-02: Do the Screenplay Gurus score big at the Box Office?

INT. EPISODE 2 – MORNING

Do the biggest original films of 2013 follow more archetypal – or formulaic – structures?

After analysing awards-nominated screenplays, Stu and Chas turn to the original screenplays that struck it biggest at the box office in 2013: GRAVITY and FROZEN. Do bigger films stick more closely to the archetypal story structures espoused by Vogler and Snyder?

We start discussing GRAVITY at around 7’33” and FROZEN at 54’40”, though discussion does skip back-and-forth at times.
