LOS ANGELES - Following a record-breaking $9 billion year at the
box office, Hollywood in 2003 can only hope to equal the mix of
sequels, superhero adventures, small dramatic gems and
out-of-nowhere surprise hits that made 2002 the most profitable
12 months in moviemaking history.
Studios again will pack the roster with familiar properties, including
two "Matrix" sequels and "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines." How
that $150 million picture does at the box office may help Arnold
Schwarzenegger decide whether he should switch to California
politics full time.
Well-known source material means that "you already have buzz
building before you get into your marketing campaign," says Dan
Marks, executive vice president for box-office tracking service
Prerelease hype cannot, however, match the goodwill of
moviegoers, says Geoff Ammer, president of Columbia TriStar
Marketing Group. "They're the ones who are going to tell people,
'Don't see this movie' or 'You should see this movie.'"
