The summer of 2015 brought a flood of movies, a new season of TV series, and the first summer movie blockbuster with a budget over $100 million. It was also the hottest year so far in Hollywood’s history.
It’s been a very hot summer and a very hot year for Hollywood. This is a true story: In July 2015, at the time of the hottest summer on record, the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Las Vegas was the site of the world’s first ever summer movie blockbuster. The “Summer” film was the last film to be filmed at the venue, so it was the hottest place in the world to film a movie.
