Summer box office off to slower start


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.

    "Transformers 27: Rise of the vending machines" should be a blockbuster when it comes out in August.

    People don't have money to waste on stuff they've already seen. Or, they're downloading it illegally. Here's hoping TF4 breaks Paramount. Time for some studio mergers to shake things up.
