With each passing year, the movie release calendar becomes more and more competitive.
Just look ahead to 2018 - Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story all come out within the same 30-day window, and the fact that three of the year's biggest releases are all clumped together gives you some idea of how densely populated the blockbuster scene actually is.
Because of this, studios are looking further and further ahead for the perfect release date to stake their claim to. As a practice, it might seem like they're jumping the gun a bit, but in reality, it makes sense; why not get ahead of the competition and bag a prime release slot before everybody else does?
This means that even far-off periods like the 2020s are already saturated with movie releases, from Avatar's numerous sequels to the latest Marvel and Indiana Jones offerings.
So while the next 365 days looks exciting enough for the time being, who's eager to know what they'll be spending their money on in the year 2024? If you do, you're in the right place!
