Tentpoles and quadrants

Where have I been hiding? I've never come across either of these phrases in relation to scripts so I did a bit of a trawl and apparently, between them, they are exactly what everyone wants in a script:

Four quadrant: a movie that appeals to all four main demographic groups — young and old, male and female;

Tentpole : a film that ‘supports’ the other films on a studio’s slate financially and will be an almost guaranteed success;

Easy, huh?
