None of the previous ten movies was a summer blockbuster, except for NEM which aired in the winter. They won't cut down the action and that's why we won't see something epic with action and substance like TWOK, TUC or FC.
I am not anti-action, I wanna see sh*t blow up like any other guy but if it is just action like in the previous two movies than it is as bad as no action at all like in The Motionless Picture.
