Less Smoking in Movies

Among the 137 top grossing movies in 2010, the 55 percent majority had no tobacco "incidents," according to the National Cancer Institute. A tobacco incident is defined as the use or implied use of a tobacco product by an actor. In 2005, only 33 percent of movies did not have a tobacco incident.
