Films released in 2014 passed the Bechdel test less than those of the previous 3 years.

Of about 1,500 movies released between 2010-2014, about 37% doesn't meet all the three criteria of the Bechdel test. 

Last year seems to score worse. For the movies released in 2014, as much as 45% of those submitted to the database didn't pass the Bechdel test. 

Note: This could also be skewed by the fact that for 2014 we have data on only 175 movies (about half of the amount of movies available for the each of the three previous three).
