Random Factoid #206

19 02 2010

Today marks the release of “Shutter Island,” the first movie in 2010 that I actually have an active interest in seeing.

Today is also February 19th.  I thought to myself that this was pretty late for the first interesting movie of the year to come out.

So I consulted my ticket collection at the first movies I saw in a given year released in that year.  The latest recorded day that I have seen my first movie of a given year was “Wild Hogs” on March 11, 2007.  Every other year, I had seen a new release in January.

Could this year top 2007?  Hopefully not, because I really want to see “Shutter Island.”  But depending on how my history research paper and musical rehearsal go, it could be a photo finish…
