  • ‘Star Wars’ Beats ‘Avengers 2′ for Most Anticipated Film of 2015
    Wednesday December 31st 2014

    Iron Man is no match for Luke Skywalker. That’s the takeaway from Fandango’s survey of the most anticipated films of 2015. The online ticketing company found that “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is the film that moviegoers are most jazzed to see next year, while “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has to settle for runner-up status.

    Consumers paid $15 million in just four days to watch “The Interview” from the comfort of their couches, building expectations that other hot, new films might also make their debut online. But Hollywood is not quite ready to give that to viewers, experts say. Even so, Sony Pictures’ initial success streaming its controversial comedy will add momentum to the industry’s slow adoption of same-day theater and video-on-demand (VOD) release. The experiment, a last-ditch effort by the unit of Sony Corp to keep “The Interview” alive despite a cyberattack on the studio and threats to movie theaters, has shown the technology works and people like it. That outcome could embolden studios to shorten wait times between theatrical release and VOD and put more small films on same-day distribution.
