Summer box office off to slower start

|By:, SA News Editor

The summer box office is down 15% Y/Y as major films The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men:Days of Future Past, and Godzilla haven't done quite enough to keep pace with the string of blockbusters which came out last summer, according to Variety.

Theater exhibitors are feeling the impact a bit more than studios with their box office cut back-end loaded, note insiders.
