Are American moviegoers an accurate predictor of overseas box office success? 

Yes and no, according to a new study released Monday by Nielsen PreView. 

According to Nielsen, U.S. movie box office receipts do not necessarily predict how well a movie will perform in Japan — this is particularly true of American dramas.  However, movies of all genres that did well in the U.S. consistently fared well among Australian movie-going audiences.
