Ah, summer, a time for outdoors, sports . . . and many hours in a movie theater! That’s right, it’s summer blockbuster season, the time of year when superheroes, explosions and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are guaranteed box office draws. Summer has the highest concentration of big budget extravaganzas created by the biggest entertainment industry on the planet competing for eyeballs. Naturally, that’s our bread-and-butter at Heroic Hollywood and we have a preview with all you need to know about this summer’s releases.
When I said “highest concentration,” I mean it. A casual perusal of the release calendar yielded 19(!) blockbusters looking for box office dominance in the short span of a few months. Nowadays, summer movie season is more and more blurred. Furious 7 and last weekend’s The Jungle Book both earned mega-dollars as April releases, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Deadpool opened in March and February. Still, while new release corridors are being paved, studios still comfortably sit on prime summer real estate three to four years in advance.
