Here are the films to be released by Universal NBC for the rest of 2015.

05/08/15 5 Flights Up
05/15/15 Pitch Perfect 2

10/02/15 London Has Fallen
10/09/15 Steve Job
10/16/15 Crimson Peak
10/23/15 Jem and the Holograms
11/27/15 The Danish Girl
12/04/15 Krampus
12/18/15 Sisters

Not all of these are from Universal NBC. About a third or 7 of the films are from Focus Features of which Universal NBC acts as the distributor.

Interesting to compare these releases to the films being released by the Walt Disney Company, which is releasing only 12 films this year or about 1 a month, while Universal NBC for the rest of the year is releasing 21 films or about 1 film every 2 to 3 weeks. Also "quantity" at Universal NBC vs. "quality" at Walt Disney Company?

And while the films released by the Walt Disney Company this year, have been criticized for the lack of originality, only 2 of the films are sequels or about 17%, while 7 of the films released by Universal NBC this year, from the titles, seem to be sequels, or about 33%. Thus, even less originality than from the Walt Disney Company.

Outside of the Walt Disney Company, Universal NBC has the biggest presence, among the major film studios, in the theme park business. Thus, it is interesting to wonder how many of these films will later show up as part of an Universal NBC theme park, including its Halloween Horror Nights, as many of this year's films are of the horror genera.

And as I have never been good at picking which films, beforehand, will be hits or flops, I'll leave that up to you all.

Next time: trivia from another major film studio.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
