2014 Summit Preview!
Summit Entertainment had a pretty decent year in 2013, although now that the "Twilight" years are over it's a bit of a struggle to regain that box office glory. Last year saw some solid surprises, including WARM BODIES, SNITCH, and NOW YOU SEE ME, with some mediocre ones like RED 2, ESCAPE PLAN, and ENDER'S GAME. 2014's roster is a smaller line-up with the studio taking another stab at the teen market with the YA novel adaptation of the DIVERGENT series, a sports drama with Kevin Costner, a cheesy mythology actioner, another entry in the Step Up series, and a Stalin-era serial killer thriller. Not a "knock-your-socks-off" line-up, but they may well have a few surprise hits in the mix. Let us know which one you're most looking forward to!
