Summer Movies a Bummer


Summer movies have not generated the box office numbers Hollywood was counting on. They need the numbers because they are behind last year's totals. Paul Dergarabedian, the senior media analyst for Comscore, says not to worry. “There are a lot of good movies on the way that I think will be big hits. Even though the year-to-date box office numbers are down by 6 and a1/2% at this point --- hopefully by the end of the year we can have a new record at the box office.

"Coming up are It – Chapter 2, Joker with Joaquin Phoenix , Frozen 2, Terminator Dark Fate with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, Jumanji The Next Level, and of course, Star Wars – the Rise of Skywalker.

Still fewer people are going to the movies - no matter how good the air conditioning is! “ People are going to the movies here. They have been doing it for decades. But --- there are sooooooo many options for entertainment these days.”

Degarebedian says Disney's killing the other studios - but considering they own Lucas Films, Pixar, Marvel and Walt Disney Feature Aninmation that makes sense.
