The Extra Rotation Episode 5: When to Hold/When to Release

ExtraRotationArtSansBorderThis week on The Extra Rotation podcast, Jeremy and Brett talk about the science behind movie release dates. Why it seems worse movies are released in the Spring and Oscar nominees are released in the Fall. We’ll also dig into summer block busters and why Independence Day 2 was not released on the Independence Day weekend.

There was a lot of news and reviews to catch up on, so Jeremy and Brett dig into the Stranger Things TV show, Jeremy gets a soapbox to sell Brett on Jack Reacher, and we discuss Jeremy’s latest reviews of Central Intelligence, Independence Day 2, and The Shallows.
