    Wonder how many studio heads will roll this summer. Hehe. Studios make their money on few movies and they make big bets on them. If they lose, they're fucked and whole studio ends up losing money for the year.

    Dont worry, the new remake of Annie, with Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks and an all black cast.. (except evil whitey Miss Hannigan) will prevail.

    ONLY GONNA GET WORSE.., good stories are out... big explosions and car crashes are in. That way they can make one movie, and show it here and China...

    See Fast and Furious 19

    Maybe they should put out some new original movies and stories instead of Spiderman, Batman, remakes of everything, reboots of everything, etc..

    Maybe some movies for adults who don't read comic books would be a good idea....

    I'd support new movies more if I could get it on PPV instead of theatrical release. I don't care if they charge $20. Dealing with the crowds and overpriced snacks isn't worth it.

    Loud urban youths is what stopped me from going to NC movie theaters.

    That's not even the problem where I go. It's loud and inconsiderate everybody. Cellphones vibrating and lighting up, muffled chatter, dummies getting up/down constantly and rustling around......all of it.

    Robin, Private Parts II will be the big movie of the summer. All the studios wanted to make it, but we went with the makes of sharknado.
