BradWesley123's rating:

Summer movies have been a mainstay since the Summer of 1975, when the hit Jaws was released. After seeing how well that film capitalized on it's release dates, more and more studios started launching tentpole pictures during Summer. The Summer opener however, is a relatively new concept. It wasn't until 1999, when Universal released The Mummy, that the idea was heavily thought of. But with that film's success, we now have a new mainstay, the Summer Kick-Off movie.
