The article we’re about to read is about eight days old, but it seems like a rather fun topic of discussion, so let’s do it anyway. As far as Summer ’07 is concerned, what’s your pick: "Spider-Man 3," "Shrek the Third," or "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End"?
From Newsweek: "DreamWorks, which merged with Paramount last year, will be releasing ogre saga “Shrek the Third”; Sony sends out another edition of its webbed wonder with “Spider-Man 3”; and Disney tries to loot more of the public’s gold in “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.”
Think “War of the Worlds” was scary? This war of the tentpoles is downright frightening to anyone with a stake in the financial outcome of the pictures. And you don’t have to be working on any of the films to be affected. If one of these movies crashes, burns and disappoints financially, which is entirely possible, it could mean the loss of hundreds of jobs. From the chef in the commissary to the projectionist in the screening room, studio employees all across town will have sweaty palms as the opening dates arrive."
