    With summer 2002 promising to be huge, the major studios are already priming 2003 "tentpole" releases. Here are the films that have so far staked out summer 2003 release dates (all dates are subject to change)...

    May 2nd: "X-Men 2"

    Memorial Day Weekend: "The Matrix Reloaded"

    June: "The Hulk", "Batman: Year One"

    Independence Day Weekend: "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines"

    "Mad Max IV", "Mission: Impossible 3", and "Shrek II" are also rumored to be priming for 2003 summer launches.

    It's pretty sad that all of those movies except one are sequels. That pretty much sums up the state of originalty in Hollywood.

    That being said, I'm looking forward to some of those films, especially Batman.

    Well, Hulk and Batman will hopefully be good. The rest don't do much for me but conjure images on The Mummy Returns...

    Take care,

    There's also The Matrix 3 in November, and of course The Return Of The King. There might even be a third Harry Potter film, though it seems a bit much for Warner to do both Matrix sequels and Terminator 3 plus Harry Potter all in the same year.

    Original?
    The only one that may be considered original would be the Hulk (no previous films) and how long has that been a comic book. Not much originality if you ask me.
    I'm still looking forward to all of those movies though[​IMG]

    What about Stepmom part 2? I've also heard rumors about Sleeping With the Enemy Again. Oh lets hope and pray.

    Mad Max IV? Where did you hear about that? I thought Gibson said they were done with Max...

    Director George Miller has been talking about doing a fourth "Mad Max" film for a couple of years now. The movie will be done with or without Gibson's participation.

    I agree though that part of this lean toward remakes, sequels, etc has to do with those being the "buzz" projects.

    No one was talking about Moulin Rouge or Memento 2 years before hand, for example. Heck, I don't think Pearl Harbor had that long a ramp up.
