Besides all the other trends 1979 held, it was also the year of the flop disaster film. HURRICANE was , as most Dino DeLaurentis productions are, much hyped . It failed miserably .

American International's Fall release METEOR did slightly better , but its high cost was the catalyst for American International Pictures being sold.

Surprisingly , the most successful of the bunch was THE CONCORDE: AIRPORT '79. But CITY ON FIRE and AVALANCHE EXPRESS were flops.
