I welcome back and now as -- -- movie preview because for rounding out the summer that help was number one at the box office.
Number to rise of the planet in the aids but at least Lamar action and comedy left for the summer but the heavy hitters are ready for the fall to joining me now is someone who's going to be following that very closely Paul the garabedian.
President of the box office division of Hollywood dot com so welcome -- to -- you.
Great to be here actually think you.
So we have so much to cover so we'll jump right -- But senate up for -- yeah what is the difference between what's at the box office in the summer and what's coming up in the fall and then even into the holidays.
Yet it's weird because.
Every release period has its own pathology or its -- You know kind of style if you will.
This summer obviously is the blockbuster season the big special effects driven films are rated comedies the big budget sequels and that kind of thing.
And then coming into the fall.
It gets a little quieter we have films that actually are more like -- help which is a summer movie.
But is playing into that fall period and I think that's very important people -- back to school we start getting into awards season.
That fall season is to me like cinematic fine dining.
Where is this summer is more like cinematic fast food and then and then the holiday season coming towards the end of the year obviously.
Is sort of a mix of both of those it's like the best of both worlds.
-- -- Oscar contenders and the big blockbusters and sequels and films like that.
Yes and we will be busy will be busy at the movie is.
And now we wanna go -- highlighting some of them may be one per week you know -- run out there if you have one that you wanna talk about that we haven't mentioned tell -- and a live chat.
We'll try to get in it all and if -- can.
The less certain Labor Day weekend so for Labor Day weekend you want to spotlight any car -- Yeah -- -- eighteen what -- Yeah.
Hole eighteen is very -- staying.
-- there almost played off like a Blair witch project briefing tomorrow is this real I mean I know there was an Apollo seventeen.
And then you're saying well there was really ill fated Apollo eighteen and there's a reason why we never went back to the movement excel is very effective the way the trailer is set up.
And you know I'm cutting interest in this -- I I grew up.
You know during a space race and all that my dad was involved in the space program I'm very curious to see how this movie plays out it looks very interest thing.
Yes it was very intense and then the following the end -- phones -- -- -- because in IMAX.
Contagion is already giving me the -- a little bit tell -- about this on and it started a lot of -- and.
A yes got tons of stars Marion Cotillard god that if I hope that I pronounce that right -- that gaming.
It's like this thing Gwyneth Paltrow.
Who is featured in a lot of that they're marketing materials for the film.
And it it's sort of reminds his phone -- to operate -- came out years ago it I think Dustin Hoffman was -- that went.
But this is a little scary it makes it -- is like don't touch anyone and don't talk to anyone so yeah -- here.
You know a German voter OCD about washing your hands -- someone that.
This may or may not be the movie for you but we've got cast in the trailer is very effective in conveying like there.
Nature of that is scary nature of it.
I think that works but again not pure escapist entertainment but again in the fall it's not just about popcorn movies and fine and all that kind of thing.
This is more of that thinking person's time at the movie theater and -- contagion plays into that are.
And then then next week I wanted to point this out it's very interesting because we've been talking about how something.
Big movies like Titanic and The Lion King which is that we are being re released in reality.
So what does that mean for box office ticket sales.
3-D that you know the jury has been out on 3-D -- audiences been wondering is it worth the extra money.
I think for certain movies it's great and maybe the novelty of being able to sea Lion King but in 3-D or a Star Wars or Titanic or something like that.
-- may revive interest in 3-D whereas.
Like this weekend we had three what we have four new movies.
Three of them -- in 3-D none of them performed.
Big you know to the expected level that they were so 380 isn't necessarily a license to make money and when it costs more money for that 3-D ticket.
People get a little weird about it you know because it's extra bucks and people -- have a lot of extra money right now.
So for something like Lion King -- maybe they'll come out for that and those three issues a films never before seen in 3-D.
Those can be very I think those can bring into a good audience are.
