2015 Big Movie Questions

Read on to learn why 2015 could be the most profitable year for Hollywood ever. Story by Matt Cummings With 2014 in the books - and a new slate of films already being released - we're continuing a tradition here at SJF by looking forward to the big movie questions of 2015. And while last year provided us with entertaining answers to the questions we posed back in January, 2015 looks to not only have just as many, but could be the most profitable year ever. Without any fanfare whatsoever, we now present the Big Movie Questions of 2015. Who will make more money: Avengers or Star Wars? It's a foregone conclusion that 2015 will be one of the biggest years for the box office ever. With interesting titles throughout the year, it's clear that Hollywood has saved its collective mojo for one big push. But there's always a top dog, someone who makes the most money after a fierce competition. Think 2012's Avengers vs. The Dark Knight Rises . This year, it&#

Big Movie Questions - Q4 Report

As 2014 comes to a close, we look back at several movie questions we've posed throughout the year. Story by Matt Cummings The fourth quarter of the movie season is much like the holiday season: theaters crowded with customers and Hollywood licking its chops in hopes for strong returns. As 2014 has unfolded, it's clear that Hollywood's business plan was not as strong as one would have hoped, showing off a great Q1, a good Q2, and a frankly awful Q3. And while the year has delivered the great ( Captain America: The Winter Solider and The LEGO Movie ), the very good ( The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 ), and the surprising ( Guardians of the Galaxy ), several of our Big Movie Questions were yet to be answered. With the holidays wrapping up, we can close out 2014 by unwrapping the rest of our gifts. We've collected all the questions we've asked this year into one article so you don't have to look back to see them all. Welcome to our 2014 Big Movie Q

2014 Big Movie Questions - Q3 Report

As Q3 comes to a close, we look back at several movie questions and make bold new predictions about the third quarter of 2014. As 2014 has unfolded, we've learned just how precarious the Hollywood film system is. Before summer arrived, we could see serious gaps in programming, especially once May ended. That did in fact happen, exposing a decent July (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Hercules, and The Purge: Anarchy) and a pretty awful August, with Guardians of the Galaxy being the only thing we could recommend. The year has delivered several memorable films ( Captain America: The Winter Solider and The LEGO Movie ), but what lessons have we learned about 2014 so far? Several questions we pondered back in January have finally had a chance to play out, so let's get to them. Has 2015 talk already eclipsed 2014? No, but there is some lingering concerns . 2014 has brought some amazing films like Godzilla , X-Men: Days of Future Past , Captain America: The Winter Soldier ,

2014 Big Movie Questions - Q2 Report

As Q2 comes to a close, we look back at some movie questions and make bold new predictions about the second half of 2014. As we began 2014, the distinct feeling among SJF writers was that 2015 was about to seriously dominate any discussion about the coming year. But 2014 has stood its ground, delivering memorable films and enticing moviegoers to come along. You'll have to wait for our upcoming Quarter 2 financial report to see the specifics, but for now we've tackled several questions we pondered back in January and you'll surprised by some of our answers. Enjoy. Has 2015 talk already eclipsed 2014? No - 2014 has brought some amazing films like Godzilla , X-Men: Days of Future Past , Captain America: The Winter Soldier , and The LEGO Movie . Meanwhile,2015's Batman/Superman movie was postponed to 2016 and Fast 7 has been shrouded in mystery since Paul Walker's death. We've seen large crowds at the theaters (not just for our screenings) and the genui

2014 Big Movie Questions

Big Movie Questions of 2014  By: Matt Cummings Read on to learn whether our Big Movie Questions of 2014 might need to be re-titled 'Top Movie Questions of 2015.' With 2013 in the books, we're continuing a tradition here at SJF by looking forward to the big movie questions of 2014. And while last year provided us with entertaining answers to the questions we posed back in February, 2014 looks to have just as many. Without any fanfare whatsoever, we now present the Big Movie Questions of 2014 . Is 2015 already eclipsing 2014? Take a look at 2015, and you'll see what could be the most impressive list of films to come in a single year: The Avengers: Age of Ultron , the as-yet-untitled Batman/Superman movie, Fast 7 , and Mission: Impossible are but a few. Moviegoers are salivating for these tentpole titles, while ignoring the potentially bigger releases of 2014, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier , Guardians of the Galaxy, Transformers: Age of E

2013 Big Movie Questions

Five Big Movie Questions for 2013 By: Matt Cummings With the 2013 movie season already in full swing, we've been thinking about some early answers to several burning questions: Will audiences stand in line to see Arnold and Stallone?   It appears that the answer is NO.  Neither the awful  The Last Stand  nor the decent  Bullet to the Head   reached audiences, pulling in less money combined than the Estrogen Fest  Safe Haven .   That's a bad sign for the duo, who separately used to command the box office.  If their fall pair-up  The Tomb  also fails to attract success, it could be the last hurrah for these aging heroes who might not know when to hang it up.  Will Winter 2013 produce the same limited amount of quality films, just as it has since....forever?   Luckily, YES.  The season has already given us more high-quality efforts than in the last three Winters COMBINED.   Gangster Squad   and  Snitch   are top shelf ,  Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters   and  Beautif
