Depending on the comedy films and what scenes are in
each one would depend on who the audience was for. Both

film choice, or does this vary?
I think that HBO Films are a lot more successful when they
produce films as each film that they have produced has
made a lot of profit. As the films they produce are normally
comedy it would take a while for them to produce and put
together, so for the amount of time that they put into the
film, this makes a lot of profit compared to paranormal
