Blockbuster movies that will influence Halloween 2008

Every year, the Hollywood industry plays a big role during the Halloween season. So far this year, there hasn’t been any big money making movies, but this is going to change as soon as the month of May comes carrying the first load of Hollywood blockbuster movies.

In the costume retailing business, decisions are made early in the year because it takes a lot of time to get rights to make, distribute and market costumes for Halloween. Online retailers have to get their stock of merchandise ready, and this is costly. The Halloween season is a one shot deal, and online costume retailers cannot afford to miss any hot and trendy costume ideas, because they’ll simply take a financial hit and end up with unsold merchandise.

The truth is, there always will be popular costume ideas, like pirate, princess, batman, elmo, wonder woman, etc… that those online retailers stock up on and will sell, as this report shows us.

But what about “THE” costume idea? You know, that costume idea that might become popular around August-September… THAT popular costume idea that can make your Halloween season a really good one.

At CostumZee, we have proven in the past that we could possibly find new trends and hot costume ideas early in the year.

The best example is Hannah Montana. CostumZee had Hannah Montana as the most popular costume idea for over a year before Halloween costume retailers started to sell the costume… And as reported here, during Halloween 2007, CostumZee ended up being the website getting the most online traffic for “Hannah Montana costumes”.

Helping people find costumes and costume ideas that are going to be popular every year is our mission :)… and this year, well, I am guessing that there will be quite a few movies that will be really popular this Halloween 2008 – so if you are looking to wear a popular costume this Halloween, check this list out:

Iron man

Star Trek

The Chronicle of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

10,000 B.C.

The Incredible Hulk

Batman: The Dark Knight

Hellboy 2

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull


Saw V

Speed Racer

James Bond: Quantum of Solace

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

I think we’ll see a real popularity battle between the movies in the TOP 5 and i cannot wait to find out which movie will be the most popular costume this Halloween. Only 9 months to go… 🙂

But what do you think? Which movie do you believe will be the big hit this year?
