Are movies actually getting longer?

I’m all too familiar with the feeling that movies are getting longer and longer. Especially now with a toddler, we prefer shorter movies, but they’re not even that easy to find these days.

To get to the bottom of this anecdotal evidence, Matt has pulled the top 50 of each decade – from the 1970s to 2020s – from Letterbox and analyzed the playing time of the films.

The result: Yes, they are getting longer. Not by much on average, but overall there are significantly more films over two hours long nowadays.
