Here’s a nice nostalgia trip back to the mid-1990s, a 1995 article from (now defunct?) Premiere film magazine predicting what the top 20 summer blockbusters would be:
I haven’t checked an exact list of how the actual box office figures turned out for these films. iirc they overestimated how well Pocahontas, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (a real 1990s relic) and Fair Game would do, while underestimating severely how Braveheart would do.
As well, they had a segment on outside chances of cracking the top 20 list, and they included big hits like The Net and Clueless.
A question for those who are following the upcoming release list for this (North American) summer period: does the 2008 summer releases look more appealing then 1995 did?
