Nineteen new films to come out on Friday. Which one do you want to watch?
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Do you think more movies come out during Spring Festival season or National Day season? This year, more films will come out on September 22, rather than Spring Festival season or National Day season. According to statistics, there will be 19 movies released at the same time on September 22, this Friday. This sets the record for the largest number of movies released in one day.
There are multiple categories of the movies to come out on September 22. There are imported films "The Hitman's Bodyguard" and "Unlocked", cartoons "Thomas & Friends: The Great Race" and "Richard the Stork", the youth films "First love" and "Youth 24 seconds", the thriller films "The Incubus Studio" and "The Forgotten Space", the suspense film "Mystery card" as well as the documentary "Sky ladder: Discover an artist reaching for the sky" and so on. Although with various kinds of movies, the audience's expectations are not high. According to the Audience expectation index of Mtime, there are only two movies that attracted more than 1,000: The Hitman's Bodyguard and Mysterious Card. Most movies only attracted less than 100 people. Worst was the Forgotten Space, which was only expected by 8 audiences.
It is worth mentioning that, among the 19 films to be on show on September 22, there are 5 films that have been produced by one company. Five movies from the same company choose to come out on the same day makes us wonder whether the company is confident or the movies will kill each other at the box office.
Of course, as an audience, you don't have to be confused, because there aren't so many movies that are really worth your money. Although the plot of the Hit man’s Bodyguard conforms to a conventional pattern, it runs smooth. When the two actors play action scenes, they made a lot of bursting points. Documentaries have attracted much attention in this year's film market. "Sky ladder: Discover an artist reaching for the sky" has obtained a high grade of 8.6 in Douban. Directed by the Academy Award of Merit winner Kevin MacDonald, it tells the journey of discovery for artist Cai Guoqiang, who displayed the firework show of "footprint" on Beijing Olympic Game Opening Ceremony.
According to the analysis, 19 films released in one day is a very special but also an abnormal phenomenon. Most of these films can't seize the optimal time of National Day season, so they have to come out one week ahead, which results in a crowd of movie options.
