The 2014 movie season is down dollar-wise versus 2013. The two movies sitting pretty atop the heap are Marvel films. I love comics and grew up on them. Iron Man being my favorite all time. The last fifteen years in comics has been pretty rough for Iron Man. But that's for another time. The current #8 is Spider-Man, another Marvel creation. A bit further up at #6 are the X-Men, another staple of Marveldom. The success of Marvel's properties in movies is undeniable that they announced 9 more films until 2019. Upping the total Marvel films to 3 per year in 2017 and 2018. Looking at the top ten, none are surprises outside of Guardians and maybe the Lego Movie. I wish BOM had a projected vs actual chart.

The rest of 2014 will shake out like expected. The next installment of The Hunger Games will most likely take the #1 spot by years end. Interstellar and the last Hobbit film will make a run into the $200+ million range. I think the Big Hero 6 might gain some traction and end close to $300 million. I've already taken my kids and the theatre I was at was popping. Most likely resulting in good word of mouth.

Another possible breakout are Exodus. The trailer might be tempting to those that grew up watching Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner go at it every Easter.
