Universal was already bathing in its Furious 7 and Jurassic World money Scrooge McDuck-style before Minions opened this week. Now the studio is looking at its third truly massive hit of the year, a run that feels nearly unprecedented. Universal already released two of the biggest movies of all time within the past four months, and now it’s looking like it may have three.
It's getting very close to that time of year; the time of year when we get deluged with new movies. From May until August, on any given day or night, we will be able to see the latest (not necessarily the greatest) films available. It seems as if it starts earlier every year. It appears to me it's already started this year.
