The Worst Summer Box Office In 17 Years

Dwayne Johnson (far right) plays Hercules in HERCULES, from Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. H-02059R

Lets take the title in for a moment. The last time we had a summer this bad, Will Smith was still charming in a black suit, and Bruce Willis was keeping a woman wrapped in toilet paper, safe. The only thing more sad than that is the fact I saw both Men in Black, and The Fifth Element, in theater. Back then we were on the heels of an influx of good summers, this year was a myriad of reasons.

Studios throw a ton of movies every year against the wall, hoping something will stick. Lately, there has been more caution in the wind, due to high budget flops (*cough* Any Hercules movie *cough*). This summer had movies with the full backing and anticipation of not only studios, but critics. Then one by one, things started hitting quick. From Amazing Spider-Man 2 to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, this was not the summer of the sequel (‘Days of Future Past and Winter Soldier excluded). Audiences took more risks, enjoying things like the surprising ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (really?), and the amazing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. The latter took in almost $300 million but did not eclipse the magical line that has been a standard for almost 15 years.
This isn’t really as bleak as it sounds. Marvel had a big summer, and the total $3.9 billion take for the four months, was bolstered by comic book movies. We have a powerful amount of fall movies coming up, and a huge three straight summers coming up. I think it’s time we don’t set any more bad records. Get it together Hollywood.

  • 當蛋白線埋入皮膚後,皮下組織會將蛋白線視為異物,啟動異物反應,因此刺激膠原蛋白生長,且可促進新陳代謝,更新老化肌膚,所以客戶在術後也會發覺膚質變得較透亮白皙。膠原蛋白提拉線像一個“磁力線”一樣,將埋入處附近的肌肉和脂肪固定在原處,不會往下墜,其後會吸引皮下組織往蛋白線集中部位移動,就會逐漸產生提拉的緊實效果。也被用於填充美容的微整形,蛋白線材就好比蓋房子的鋼骨支架,先埋入皮膚當作基底結構,然後再注入好比水泥的玻尿酸或自體脂肪,因為有吸附力不易擴散,就可穩定固定住填充物,讓立體支撐力效果更好。

  • Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

  • Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
