Big Brit Summer of Movies

The Nikkster's website says the new Pixar movie will soon be cleaning up in Great Britain:

'Toy Story 3' Should Win UK Summer Box Office

... “We haven’t had a line-up this good since 2002 when Spider-Man, Star Wars II & l, and were released,” one UK exhibitor drools. “Even so, there will be a lot of catch-up to do in July and August because of this month’s World Cup." This gels with an Odeon cinema chain poll that says 28% of cinemagoers are most excited about seeing Toy Story 3 3D, compared to 22% for Shrek Forever After, and 15% for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Odeon surveyed over 5,000 UK film fans.

So if the percentages hold, TS3 comes in at #1 and Shrek IV at #2 in the British Isles. This will no doubt encourage our fine conglomerates to continue with more sequels.

We'll check back in a few months and see if Team Nik is correct or not.
