"It's easier to understand than the conventional way of presenting this type of information"

I would have to disagree with this. It's a fantastic method of displaying box office takings, but upon first glance, it looks quite daunting.

I believe the best method of displaying box office takings is a little similar to this: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2008/02/23/movies/20080223_REVENUE_GRAPHIC.html The Ebb and Flow of Movies, by the New York Times. A fantastic piece of work.

Hello Matt!

It's a great interactive chart, shame it's a bit hard to follow at times but the numbers make up for that. Seeing as people have also suggested Junk Charts, there's another blog called http://dataviz.tumblr.com/ which you might already know but is filled with data visualisation images!
