Summer 09 Movie Recap

Now that the summer movie season is over – because I say so – it’s time to recap. USA Today reports that the season started out with a bang but withered at the end. Overall Hollywood brought in just a little more this year than last, but adjusting for ticket prices the attendance was actually down 2%.

What is really significant about this summer is the emergence of RunPee.com – hey, it’s significant to me! So what was the most popular movie viewed here at RunPee.com this summer? First let me give you some clues: RunPee is sort of attractive to the geek crowd because a lot of technically oriented websites like Mashable, Engadget, Gizmodo, etc, reported on it. Especially early on in the summer – another hint.

Turns out that Star Trek was hugely popular – big surprise. It also came out right before RunPee had its initial huge traffic spike – server crash #1-of-5.
