Well, maybe it started with the new Trek film, and now Harry Potter. And there are probably others. Apparently the writers strike forced studios to move their franchise films from winter to summer. My question is: what kind of crap are they now gonna play for the poeple that enjoy going to films over the holidays?
Another question: If every studio makes such a move, won't the summer season become over crowded? Where is the increase in earnings potential. Look at Prince Caspian this year, wedged between a lot of summer blockbusters, and I think it would have played better over the holidays. I think the same thing is going to happen to many films next summer.
I think the studios are being too rash.
