    every movie was underestimated for the holiday. Stid is close to $412.8 million.

    Man of Steel, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Iron Man 3 did great on Father's Day.

    The sooner you'll admit it, Buzzkill, the sooner you'll feel better about yourself. ;)

    If the next movie is going to come in 2016, it's starting to get crowded already.

    Last week Marvel announced an untitled film for May 6, 2016.

    And today Sony announced June 10, 2016 for Amazing Spider-Man 3.

    Why put the next Star Trek film into a summer slot? Why not another slot, where it can dominate the market?

    I was looking at the 2016 film schedule at Wikipedia. Someone is making an Angry Birds movie. Why?

    Studios sometimes try that, but the lower traffic outside of the summer and the November/December frame makes it a risky proposition for big budget films. March is the best month outside of the summer and the end-of-year holidays, but March has only delivered two films that have grossed over $250 million domestic and six that have grossed over $200 million domestic.

    That movie will be fucking huge among the kiddie crowd. I can't count the amount of money I've sunk into Angry Birds for my son.

    I thought Hitchcock already did that.

    There's more money to be made in the summer.

    For the most part, but there are exceptions. Look at The Hobbit from last year, did very well in the box office.

    November/December is also a peak moviegoing period, but it's also very competetive.

    Star Trek's not The Hobbit. The Hobbit would have been competitive at any time of year; it doesn't follow that if one is concerned that a movie can't keep up with the competition it makes sense to move it to a less lucrative release date.

    I didn't express that thought well. I'm not saying that November/December would be a better time of year, just that there are blockbusters that come out outside of the summer.
