    It's going to be interesting to see which films are hits are which ones are flops. All of those are big-budget films which means the box office take must be pretty high to recoup the investments.

    The only film I'm really excited about is The Matrix Reloaded.

    These are the only 3 that interest me right now, although the Hulk might persuade me to watch it.

    It is a little disappointing to me that most of the big films next year end in "2" [​IMG]
    We need a good sleeper/indie hit! [​IMG]

    It'll be a three-way battle for the crown of Summer 2003's biggest blockbuster. "X-Men 2", "The Matrix Reloaded", and "The Hulk" are (right now anyway) the movies to beat. Right now I'd give the edge to 'Reloaded', in spite of it's R rating.

    Matrix Reloaded is my number one must see of summer 2003.
    Ten years ago I would have been really excited at the prospect of a T3, but they waited too long, its just old Arnie wearing sunglasses and chasing after another evil robot, ho hum and no Jim Cameron directing, eek!
    And oh yeah my number one must see of year 2003 involves some little people attempting to destroy a ring...

    If Reloaded doesn't make $300m I will be very surprised. In fact, based upon the Matrix DVD popularity I can see Reloaded going for $400m if it is at least as good as the original.

    The best comparison I could give for the where the buzz to Reloaded is right now would be to think of the T2 buzz and how well Terminator 1 had done (well enough to get Arnie more fame, but built up with fans over the years till T2 hit).


    I'm excited about X-Men 2, Hulk and League. Also moderately interested in CA 2.

    Sinbad has promise as a CG film, and I think a prequel to Exorcist is an idea that many fans have had an interest in seeing (if done well).

    The only thing holding reloaded back from shattering SpiderMan's opening record is the fact that it is R and undoubtably the conservatives will be out in force to stop all the kids that are 16 years 364 days old from possibly seeing it. It's not exactly a good indicator, but when those little green letters began scrolling down the screen at AOTC's opening, the theater possibly erupted louder and longer than it did for Yoda. And Yoda got one huge hell of a response. Perhaps a better indicator is (since I was known as the movie guy while working there) about every couple weeks someone would ask me, when is the next matrix coming out? People are pumped for this film, and remember all the thirteen year old boys when this hit theaters will be 17 for Reloaded. [​IMG]
    i'll be on hand to check out X2, Hulk, Gentlemen, SK3, T3, and Finding Nemo, but little else seems to interest me, I predict right now that the Harrison Hartnett gang film makes no more than 20mil and that's being generous.
    The real question I'm wondering is will Xmen do anything remotely like spiderman, perhaps it could even push 250 mil...
    Biggest movie of the Summer of 2004? Prisoner of Azkaban [​IMG]

    I'm very much looking forward to: X-Men 2, The Matrix Reloaded & The Hulk.
    Also some non-summer 2003 releases: Kill Bill, Good Omens & LOTR:ROTK.
    The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen has piqued my interest.
    I don't have a good feeling about T3 but I'll give it a chance. The rest of those sequels I have no interest in seeing.

    The number one movie I'm super duper excited about is X-Men 2. I love the X-Men universe and the first one, in my opinion, was incredibly awesome. And after watching that ComicCon trailer...I'm more anxious to see it. The second film which I am excited to see would be The Matrix Reloaded...first was incredible, so of course this one will be too. Then I would have to say T3, then Hulk. Those are the 4 I can't wait to see.
