Hollywood has crunched the final summer box-office numbers, and the stats be scary. This summer's releases grossed a total $3.15 billion, down an alarming nine percent from Summer 2004. And when you compare the number of actual tickets sold compared to last summer, the deficit balloons to 13 percent. I blame the $17 Sno-Caps.
