Dear 100 Hour Board,

What countries watch the most movies? And by this I mean, which countries have the highest $$ sales in movie tickets per year. We always hear about the US earnings, and sometimes world wide earnings, but I never hear about other countries.

A: Dear Mel,

I doubt people track that kind of information, but if you calculate the number of people living above the poverty level in the top ten largest nations of the world, the United States comes out on top, so I'm guessing the US watches the most.
