I mean, just off the top of my head we’ve got:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon
The Hangover 2
Pirates of the Caribbean 4
Fast and Furious 5
Conan the Barbarian
Now, not all of them are super hyped (Conan, FF 5,) but certainly all the comic book ones are, Harry Potter sure as fuck is, and Transformers will bring in a shit-ton even though we all know the second one sucked ass.
So, two fold question:
- Will this summer break the previous record (I think it’s currently the 2009 summer?)
- Assuming 1 is yes (which I certainly think it is,) will there be any real hope for it to be broken? I mean…what are the odds we’ll get three super-hero movies, the final movie of a major book and movie series, and multiple sequels of pretty successful (if not always good,) franchises?
