With the summer film season coming to a close, the box office winner will be “The Avengers” with “The Dark Knight Rises” a close second; both earned $100 million-plus. Already trailers for fall and holiday season movies are popping up in theaters, signaling that it’s time to look ahead.
September has never been a strong month for movie openings. Vacations end, school starts and the box office take goes down. The releases for September are usually weak, with one huge exception for 2012.
