Last year -- it just getting too crowded out there.
Having it mighty crowded in this weekend coming up we have -- films opening in wide release and coming on the heels of despicable me two.
And the Lone Ranger of course and Pacific rim and grownups too.
I mean it's an absolute traffic jam out there at the nation's movie theaters and is a finite number of screens.
And leaders to show the mind but the summer movie season is where all these soldiers packed in to this eighteen week period that accounts for 40%.

It really did and in fact -- Boise is a great case in point a film -- was talked about before it was even released.
In a negative way about its cost overruns delays and all that that once the movie open it.

That the years take the product at the studios give them.
They try to run them as long as they can't but at the movies taking up a lot of shelf space in -- theater and not doing well.
You have to move them out like towel and then move in the next big movie and it.
And the -- migrate from one film to the next.
All summer long it's kind of crazy the -- the way were moved now like cattle -- not like the Lone Ranger thank you very much called here -- -- thank you.
