After watching the trailer for the Island, I just can't believe how many potentially great movies are coming out this summer, making it possibly the best summer ever for movies. They may not all turn out to be the best movies, but in terms of box office gross, it looks like an ubelievably huge summer. Mainly: Sin City, ROTS, Batman Begins, War of the Worlds, and The Island, and maybe some surprises as well. Any other movies I'm forgetting?
Yes and of all those, really only two were expected to do that great in theaters, and only Matrix and PotC did really good in theaters. X2 grossed above average for a summer blockbuster film, same as T3, but the rest of them tanked.
