I tend to think this is true for movies as well, but I'm not so sure.
It's certainly true of movies intended to have a serious story. Imagine if a film like The Shawshank Redemption were all action and no character development...

It would've likely done $100 million instead of barely making back its production budget. But it's a great movie.

Unfortunately, for the most part folks go to theaters for "event" films. Films that have lots of action and special effects. Likely a byproduct of ticket prices going up, up, up. If they're going to pay, they want an experience they can't get at home.
