With the Blogging A to Z Challenge finally over, I find that I don't know quite what to do with myself. So I've decided to fill the now empty space in my life with movies! And good lord are there a lot of movies coming up this summer. Check out my list:
The Avengers - May 4
Dark Shadows - May 11
Battleship - May 18
What to Expect When You're Expecting - May 18
Men in Black III - May 25
I'm still not sure how I feel about the direction Tim Burton took with the new Dark Shadows film, but I loved the original TV series so I still plan on going to see it.
Definitely The Avengers. Joss Whedon, Robert Downey, Jr., the whole team squabbling and ganging up on one another like a bunch of kids . . . this is definitely going to be a winner.
Snow White and the Huntsman - June 1
Prometheus - June 8
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - June 22
Brave - June 22
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - June 22
G.I. Joe: Retaliation - June 29
YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING:
Never would I have imagined that they'd make a sequel to the truly horrible G.I. Joe film. But they are, and I am not ashamed to admit that I need to see it. It looks terrible in a seriously awesome kind of way.
Prometheus! I have been waiting for this day to come for years. Finally, the long anticipated Ridley Scott prequel (well, sort of) to the Aliens franchise.
The Amazing Spider-Man - July 3
Red Lights - July 13
The Dark Knight Rises - July 20
Neighborhood Watch - July 27
Step Up Revolution - July 27
It's embarrassing to admit, but I love these incredibly cheesy dance movies, and I'm really looking forward to the latest addition to the Step Up franchise. No mocking me.
If there's anyone out there that doesn't consider The Dark Knight Rises to be the most anticipated movie of the summer, they're certainly not a friend of mine. I get goosebumps every time I see the trailer.
The Bourne Legacy - August 3
Total Recall - August 3
Hope Springs - August 10
The Awakening - August 10
The Expendables 2 - August 17
ParaNorman - August 17
Premium Rush - August 24
Lawless - August 31
The Bourne Legacy, but just by a hair. I can't wait to see where they're going to take the franchise with Aaron Cross. Runner up for most anticipated August movie is Total Recall, which also looks incredible, and I'm excited to see a completely different adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story than Arnold Schwarzenegger's.
Spider-Man swinging to the rescue? Abraham Lincoln kicking some vampire butt? A little kid named Norman who has the ability to speak to the dead? What movies are you looking forward to this summer?
