    I have a feeling WW might tank. Be interesting to see! I’ve not been a big fan of the DC movies.

    Agree wholeheartedly with your other assessments. The Emoji Movie…eeeeuch.

    • Nick Kush says:

      The DCEU has certainly been spotty, but buzz around the movie has been great so far so fingers crossed! Also, if the Emoji Movie does good enough you know that the sequel will be something terrible like “The Bitmojie Movie” lol

    Great write up! I am looking forward to this summer’s blockbusters as well. I think Spiderman: Homecoming will do biggest numbers. I think War of the Planet of the Apes will be the best and my favorite movie. I am personally rooting for Dunkirk to be good so bad because Nolan is one of my favorite directors and this doesn’t seem like a movie he would make, plus I wasn’t to big on Interstellar (I know unpopular). All in all this should be a great summer for films.

      Let’s hope! My main fear is that The Emoji Movie and Transformers make enough money to warrant sequels lol

      • CalebRaves says:

        Lol How many movies is Transformers on now? Big theme is sequels this summer Despicable Me, Pirates, Transformers, Apes. Casual viewers will go see based on name alone so companies will continue to make as long as they sell.

      • Nick Kush says:

        This is the (gulp) 5th Transformers movie lol. They keep killing in oversees markets.

      • Nick Kush says:

        It seems like the movement towards established franchises is staying for good. Studios are afraid of making big budget, stand-alone properties in fear of them tanking. Take King Arthur for example, made $15 million its first weekend on a $185 million budget.
