Film Surf Report: Holy Franchise Overload! Sixty-Four Super-ish Movies (And Counting) To Hit Theatres In Next Five Years

 

AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON    HUNGER GAMES PART 2

Santa Monica, CA — (Updated 04 April 2016)

Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures, Warner Bros. and DC Comics, Sony, Paramount, Universal and Fox wish you to clear your calendars for their upcoming slate of films.

Please take no vacations, and if you really must, plan to do so near a multi-plex because if you are a boy, age 9-84, your attendance is mandatory, dammit!

Sixty-four Super Films/Sequels/Continuations of Franchises are heading your way between now and 2020.  Most have release dates.  I actually want to see 19 of them!

Billions of dollars (in profits!) are at stake (seriously!) and the fate of movie theatre chains (really!) depends on the success of these tentpole films.

No word yet on The 3rd Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, though.

Meanwhile, mark your calendars…
