  • BOY, 2015 is going to be some kind of year IF STAR WARS VII gets released then also.  I love this slate of movies coming...esp. 1952 and POTC 5 (the more JACK SPARROW the better).

    CURIOUS DATES THOUGH...why not CAPTAIN AMERICA on the weekend of JULY 4 where Maleficent is now.  Just seems like a no-brainer to open a "patriotic" movie over the JULY 4 weekend.

    SAME WITH POTC...JULY 4 weekend is always an  event type weekend for the movies.  Why are they allowing another movie--for which nothing right now is scheduled--to open the weekend before POTC on July 10.  Why not claim the 4th in 2014 and 2015?  Just does not make alot of sense.  They have a chance at DISNEY to rule the next couple of years with a great slate, take advantage of it.

    ANY NEWS ON THE PHINEAS & FERB live-action movie?

  • No news of Tron ?

  • Why, oh why Disney have you been so silent on the remake of the Haunted Mansion? I want that sorry version a few years back to be nothing more then a distant memory. I want a GOOD Haunted Mansion movie! Do we really need another POTC film?
