There was a week a while back, I think the week after Indy 4 where it seemed like nothing "major" came out.
I believe Sex and the City was considered major and has proven that out. Plus it would've been Indy4 weekend 2 which has shown to be dominant.

But, heck, a week or two earlier for Hellboy and would've stood a better chance. But it was completely set-up to fail this week. Any movie was.
I week earlier would've been head-to-head with Will Smith's Hancock, not a good idea.

Hindsight tells me maybe June 20th would've been good with Get Smart and Love Guru. It would've been counter programming to both and had a 2 weekend gap between superheroes Hulk & Hancock.

Indy 4 was getting mediocre word-of-mouth and SatC was probably fairly "niche" so Hellboy would've stood a fairly better chance.

But even before Ledger's death "experts" could've told you any movie opening the week before TDK was going to get its ass handed to it the following week and never recover.

Hell, opening Hellboy THIS week would've given it better chances, or next week so it doesn't go up against Mulder and Scully. It wouldn't of been #1 in either week but it wouldn't of suffered such a huge drop trying to go up agsinst the biggest movie of the Summer in its second week.

Hellboy has now only made $56m to its $85m budget. (No foreign takes yet.) I want to see a Hellboy 3 and it's not looking very good unless its DVD does well and that money is considered on whether it gets a sequel or not.

^^^
Indy 4 has not and did not get mediocore WOM. On the net, from fanboys who didn't get or appreciate the alien touches sure, but the masses did give it good WOM. A movie with a $100m opening with a current take of $312.5m and is the #2 highest movie currently of the year indicates very good WOM.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

Well now that I've seen all the Summer Movies I've wanted to see (Plus some like Hancock and Wanted) I'll just say that this summer movie season has been borderline between lacking and relatively decent. There's been some great movies (Iron Man, WALL-E, and The Dark Knight) but I really can't bring myself to be excited about movies based on reviews or trailers. I finally saw the Xfiles 2 trailer yesterday and since there has been no buzz on it, I find myself wondering if this movie is going to flop. After a 8+ year hiatus, I would have thought there would have been more excitement but I haven't heard anything. The Mummy 3 looks interesting in a if I am in the mood I'll see it kind of way, but that's pretty much it. Time to look forward to the Winter movie season now with Quantum of Solace on the horizon.

So you go to see a movie based on hype? Sort of like all of the other lemmings in the nation? Erm, OK.

Why no hype around X-Files 2? It was a TV series that, mostly, whimpered away several years ago. I'd say more than anything else the movie is for the remaining fans of the show.

I go based on my own excitement for a particular movie. I haven't gotten excited by many movies (trailers) this year. As for the Buzz with X-files, if it is a movie for the fans, than it's not going to do very well. Might be good, but might also be a flop too, since it is coming out a week after Dark Knight.

Good thing it's written both for fans and people who've never seen X-Files.

I fear next year's summer movies...we were spoiled by this summer with so many blockbuster hits:

Wolverine
Star Trek
Angels and Demons
Night at the Museum II
Terminator Salvation
Up
Fast and the Furious
The A Team
Prince of Persia
Transformers 2
Ice Age 3
GI Joe

I'm scared.
