Last year was huge. Blackpanther, IW, Incredibles 2 and A Quiet Place lead a huge record breaking year at the box office. This year was supposed to be a bigger year at the box office. Think about it? Endgame, Godzilla, Toy Story 4, Aladdin, Detective Pikachu, Lion King, Hobbs and Shaw to name a few.
Needless to say, it hasn’t worked out the way analysis were predicting. Godzilla, Pets 2, MIB International, Detective Pikachu and Dark Phoenix haven’t done as well as expected. Detective Pikachu and Godzilla are very good, but they’ve only managed to be mild hits. Even Toy Story 4 is not gonna perform as analyst thought it was. Are people getting burned out on going to the theater? Don’t they like the movies being shown? Or, is there nothing to really get audiences excited?
Frozen 2 and Star Wars are coming this fall. Will they be enough to help the box office reach it’s record breaking heights? Or will audiences sit this one out? It maybe a downtime for movies until Avatar 2 comes out. James Cameron come save us!
