after earth has to be on this list too! with honorable mention r.i.p.d and white house down
I disagreed. It was made strictly for Fanboy. Great CGI + Action Sequence + Robot vs Monster in a brainless fight + no plot/story/Charactor development = Fanboy movie. It has nothing in this movie that overall GA would be loving it. Movie that are targeted for Fanyboy is always going to be doom unless it had a book to back it up prior to being release that GA liked from the start and wanted to see it regardless if it's bad or not... If PR had a strong story and plot like "Inception" + the CGI and action than we are talking about a BO hit and a new kic-A## trilogy...
For Movie Industry, an Epic Summer for Blockbuster Flops
There were far too many films released and the films did hurt eachother. It was almost comical.
RIPD and RED 2 would have done so much better if they were released in the offseason like September/October or January/February. The former movie is obviously turd and the studio wanted to dump it but try to get something back. Unless Universal is gonna use the excuse, market too crowded for it to perform.
What do you guys think this means for 2015?
Well we know movies are going to stay away from Avengers 2 and Star Wars 7. So I guess that's one way of avoiding the problem.
I think the 2015 films will hurt eachother as well. No film is immune to competition.
This quote sums it up for me.
Competition is certainly always a factor but if your product is so much more appealing than the alternative...
Thing is films are eating each other in spite of how good they are.
It was like watching a a 5, 6 car pileup slowly happen with more cars possibly adding to the mayhem.
It's a good thing for Hollywood to scale back tentpoles because all they're doing right now is proving both Soderbergh's and Spielberg/Lucas's opinions about Hollywood right. They need to either scale back or take more risks with their scheduling. Movies can get to a billion outside the summer season, just look Avatar, Skyfall, and The Hobbit.
Yes. Great for the moviegoers (well moviegoers with a lot of expendable income), crap for business. How everyone didn't see this coming, I don't know. 5 or 6 summer films this year could have been moved easily, and did much strong business. I still wonder what MoS and STID would have done if not for the huge pileup.
If there was a good movie after The Avengers, I think people would have easily gone to that instead. Avengers was lucky that there was nothing good in our theaters for at least a month after it came out.
This summer has just been to crowded with movies. I can't remember a summer this crowded with big movies. Lets see
Iron Man 3
Star Trek Into Darkness
Fast and Furious 6
Hangover Part 3
Man of Steel
White House Down
World War Z
This is the End
Despicable Me 2
Kick Ass 2
I know I am missing some movies, but yea this summer season has been ridiculously crowded. And its clear some movies got hurt by the movies releasing a week or two apart.
But now avengers 2 is going to be huge because most people who saw the first one liked it
And star wars 7 is almost a surefire hit
Maybe this means we'll get more blockbuster movies in "trash" months like Jan/Feb or September.
That would be a good thing. Some of the studios should have done that this year. Pacific Rim would have performed better if it was released in September or January or February of 2014. Those months are waste lands in terms of quality movie releases.
I think we'll get a couple movies in August that do much better than a lot of the ones released during the regular summer season. Also, The Long Ranger is going to be used for the porn parody, watch.
Lol, Will Pacific Rim have a porn parody?
I wonder how much that'll do. 1b is guaranteed.
Wouldn't be surprised if that approached $1 billion OS alone. Something I think Avengers 2 will certainly do.
It doesn't help that the quality of this year's summer blockbusters hasn't been particularly high.
This summer I got Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, Man of Steel, The Lone Ranger, and Pacific Rim. Add to that the DM2 and MU. Still got The Wolverine and Elysium to come.
I'd say it has been one of the best summers I can ever remember.
Percy Jackson will be watched come next month for two giant reasons.
