Summer box office –recycled blockbusters still don’t add up to a winner

Disney owned the summer with a string of billion dollar hits. Nobody else did nearly as well at the year to date is 6% down, summer to summer down 2%.

Putting this much of the Hollywood business under one roof –Walt Disney/Marvel Studios/Pixar/Disney Animation/Lucasfilm — is bad news.

Sony earned a $billion from a “Spider-Man” sequel.

Staggering numbers nothing original came close to. When the public decides it’s over comic book films, “Star Wars” or animated classics remade, if it happens all at once, the Mouse will be in deep.

And that day is coming.
