That title may sound weird to you until you read today’s link. ScreenCrush’s Matt Singer goes into the big problem with this year’s summer blockbuster, which is basically too many sequels and not enough wow versus TV and cable/satellite television or streaming series on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. And he has a point. The only new IP I’ve seen pushed much is another driving movie and Valerian, which could just be Hollywood continuing to find the replacement to Harry Potter that the Hunger Games alone has come even remotely close to.

    Yes, movies in the cinema are losing out due to the other options people have. But I know that this summer’s Planet of the Apes movie will look better on a cinema movie screen as opposed to my regular size television if I were to wait 2 years until it shows up on something like USA Channel or TNT. Movies like the upcoming Star Wars or Planet of the Apes will get me into the theater for an awesome experience of intense sounds and visuals that I can’t get at home. However, if I did have an advanced home entertainment system with superior sound, etc., then I would choose to stay home instead and watch it. Those are the folks who the movie theaters are losing money from. Somehow they have to try to find a way to bring them back in. And I don’t think that offering wine service and heated seats is going to do the trick!
