The Evolution of the Summer Blockbuster

Same Old, Same Old

Much like your favorite television show reappearing in the same month each year, studios have made an annual event out of the latest installment of their most popular franchises. Four of the eight Harry Potter films (the world’s highest grossing film franchise) were summer affairs, as well as all of the Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Spider-Man, and Nolan-directed Batman movies.

The point? Don’t be surprised when Pirates of the Caribbean: Part 32 is the biggest hit of 2050.
