Box Office Revenue Prediction Using Dual Sentiment Analysis

Prashant Rajput, Priyanka Sapkal, and Shefali Sinha
Abstract—Twitter is amongst the most widely used social networking website and it is also a reliable source of mass opinion. Success of a movie can be predicted by analyzing tweets and examining the impact of movie on the mob. Pre-release buzz can also be captured through tweets. This knowledge helps in predicting the success of a movie and its approximate revenue. In this paper, Dual Sentiment Analysis (DSA) is used for sentiment analysis of tweets that avoids sentiment classification problems and improves performance. Along with sentiment analysis of tweets, contribution of other factors such as star cast, holiday effect, sequel and genre are also considered. Finally, multivariate linear regression is performed on all above-mentioned factors to predict the Box Office revenue of a movie. The results show that this proposed system performs better while providing better accuracy.

Index Terms—Natural language processing, sentiment analysis, opinion mining, machine learning, social media.
