POLL: The Best and Worst Summer 2019 Movies
The Summer 2019 movie season is officially over with the onset of Fall, so ComingSoon.net wants its readers to look back on the last few months and pick both the Best and Worst movies that came out between late-April and late-August. Make as many choices as you’d like in both polls below!
So which movies will go on to define the summer of 2019? Without a doubt the biggie will be Avengers: Endgame, the culmination of an 11-year, 22-film saga in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that wound up shattering all records at both the domestic and international box office to become the all-time movie champ over Avatar with nearly $2.8 billion.
After Avengers there were other big winners at the box office, but like that film most of them were via Walt Disney Pictures, including The Lion King, Toy Story 4 and Aladdin. There was also Spider-Man: Far From Home which, while not a Disney film, did utilize Marvel Studios characters resulting in the biggest box office for a Spidey film ever. Outside of superheroes, Keanu Reeves brought John Wick Chapter 3 to a franchise high, while Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood showed that auteur-driven original movies with big stars still have a place at the table.
The biggest losers were big budget tentpoles that couldn’t deliver the goods audiences wanted, the most notable being Fox’s Dark Phoenix which tarnished the X-Men legacy with a film that managed to please few. Men in Black International also failed to capitalize on a dependable brand, while Godzilla: King of the Monsters drastically underperformed compared to its predecessor. Annabelle Comes Home also grossed a series low for the Conjuring Universe, while still earning a healthy profit overseas.
