Yesterday was Aug. 21, 2018. That means we are just under four months away from Dec. 21, 2018. That date may be arbitrary in its significance, but it is the opening date for a whopping six major studio releases all hoping to cash in on the prime “Christmas-to-New Year’s” holiday blitz. With no Star Wars sucking up the attention and box office bucks, and with Welcome to the Jungle and The Greatest Showman proving that a big crowd-pleaser can thrive even against a 1600lb gorilla during the holiday season, every studio is tempting their fate on essentially the same date. It’s going to show that the audience can handle a bunch of big movies even during the Christmas season or it’s going to be a game-changing bloodbath.
