The numbers are in and it was not a great summer for the North American box office.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, revenue seriously decreased down to 14.6 percent to $3.83 billion, making it the first time since 2006 that total revenue did not reach $4 billion.
Films like Baywatch, The Emoji Movie, King Arthur,The Mummy, Transformers: The Last Knight, and Alien: Covenant made significantly less money than anticipated.
Dunkirk and Girls Trip exceeded all expectations, thanks in large part to the reviews.
Many of the summer releases tended to either be films part of franchises, or remakes. This could be an indication that viewers are dissatisfied with those types of films.
It will be interesting to see what the numbers will be like throughout fall and winter.
