Short notes and brief thoughts: Round 2

Updating my biggest summer grosses list

Originally I thought that the top five grosses of the summer would belong to Transformers 3, Harry Potter 7-2, The Hangover Part II, Cars 2 and Super 8. However, Cars 2 and Super 8 have not met my expectations ($250 million + for Cars 2 and $220 million for Super 8), so I am reconsidering my list.

I’m so depressed right now.
