Tim Burton vs Woody Allen

Per my calculations none of the last five films directed by either Tim Burton or Woody Allen made a profit on their theatrical release.  Taking the widest release numbers from boxofficemojo and the production costs from either boxofficemojo or imdb, what's interesting is how the production costs correlate (with some exceptions) to the number of theaters each film is released into.  But, perhaps of more interest, is the fact that Tim Burton's bigger budgeted films mostly star men while Woody Allen's lower budgeted films primarily star women.  Will there ever come a day when women are paid as well as men?
