It's all about the release dates!

This blog post is all about release dates.  Why? Because so many studios have gone ahead and confidently announced release dates for sequels for movies yet to be released and certain studios (yes, we're looking at you, Disney) have announced mysterious projects that I'm too curious to know what it's about.

  • After the encouraging buzz at Comic-Con, Sony went ahead and announced May 2, 2014 for the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man.  Sony seems to have a lot of faith in this franchise. 
  • The Hunger Games is filming their first film in the trilogy but that doesn't stop them from announcing that Catching Fire, the second in the series, will be out on November 22, 2013.  Obviously, a lot of hope on this movie, mine included.  
  • Walt Disney studios announced that yet another new Pixar film will be out on May 30, 2014.  Okay, that's like 2 and half years away but this comes on the heels of the other original Pixar film releasing on November 27, 2013.  Could it be that Pixar is releasing two back to back original features?  This is too much, it's like Christmas and my birthday combined.  I truly hope this is true.  Supposedly, Disney will be revealing a bit more info come August 20th at the D23 Expo.  Watch this space.

So, what do we think? Too much hype or a clever new marketing technique?
