I hardly think so, but this article sure seems to:

http://my.xfinity.com/articles/entertainment/20150905/US--Summer.Box.Office/

Excerpt:
"More important, perhaps, is that the movie business is generally quite healthy — robust, even. Despite clamors over the effect of digital media and the competition of television, films are finding success in a variety of ways. The summer proved that many of the characteristics that have long driven hits — a reputation for quality (Pixar's "Inside Out"), the allure of top-flight stunts ("Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation"), a sense of cultural timeliness ("Straight Outta Compton"), blinding B-movie thrills ("Mad Max: Fury Road") — still work just fine."

"B-movie"
I don't think that word means what he thinks it means.

Kung Fury - that's blinding B-movie action.

B movies were low budget, sometimes tacky, poorly made, like spaghetti westerns.

Mad Max 1 was a "B" grade movie (anything coming out of Australia at the time was B grade given no one knew we actually had a film industry!)

Correct!

We had a thriving "backyard" film industry (Mad Max being the prime example).
