As a result, trade analysts feel that the strategy has proven to be a winner since the viewers like to come back for familiar stories. Though not 100% risk free, it is still a rewarding formula. Based on past performances, it is safe to assume that the summer of 2015 will be a winner. Moreover, with ever expanding new markets (Asia, especially China), celebrity new Hollywood's cataclysmic sagas, topped with extremely powerful visual effects, are likely to stay. However, a section of the audience has taken to web link social media to express concerns over such a 'watershed' year. So closely dated, movies run the risk of cannibalizing each others' business. Some franchises might lose out to others given relative interests, while soaring ticket prices will add to the woes. Moreover, if an overdose of sequels, adaptations and so on back fires, it will leave the studios in a bloodbath as they have put billions of dollars at stake for producing these, jeopardizing their future strategies. These views are valid to some extent as the jam packed release schedule for the year has forced a massive change in dates already.
