IN THEATRES NOW:
The season of big movies has begun! And while May is the month of Hangover 2,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Kung Fu Panda 2, andÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Pirates Of The Caribbean – Hollywood has a huge delivery of blockbuster hopefuls coming your way! Here’s a look at some of the big ones movie fans are waiting for… along with their movie trailers. It’s going to be a great season in the cineplex!
Super 8 – Opens June 10th
Director J.J. Abrams and Producer Steven Spielberg bring a suspenseful nail biter… It’s 1979 – After part of Area 51 is shut down by the Air Force, all its contents are supposed to be transported to a secure facility in Ohio. Do you think everything went fine? Helllllz, no, it didn’t, and all that mysterious stuff on the train that was supposed to go to Ohio was in a big derailment, and its all downhill from there.
Writer/Director Abrams, who has built a fan following with the TV hitsÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Lost, Alias, and the filmsÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Mission: Impossible 3, Cloverfield, Star Trek and others,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â is notoriously secretive about his plotlines on film. But expect a movie creature that he hopes will join a long history of creepy killers.
X Men First Class – Opens June 3rd
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS unveils the epic beginning of the X-Men saga — and a secret history of the Cold War and our world at the brink of nuclear Armageddon. As the first class discovers, harnesses, and comes to terms with their formidable powers, alliances are formed that will shape the eternal war between the heroes and villains of the X-Men universe.
If you want it more simply: great characters, amazing special effects, and a lot of flying, running and chasing around, and rogue heroes overcoming evil.
Green Lantern – Opens June 17
It was just a matter of time before ‘it’-guy Ryan Reynolds – he of the chiseled abs that magazine and movie people love rubbing in our face – became a superhero. Reynolds is a likable everyman who happens upon circumstances that make him a hero. (Just be grateful the incident didn’t happen to some schlub you just saw at the mall Cinnabon the other day – otherwise it would be a portly fellow in a leotard, and no one wants to see that.)
Cars 2 – June 24th
Something for the little ones… don’t expect a densely layered plot! Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â According to Disney:Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Racing star Lightning McQueen teams up with his best friend Mater for an international adventure as they go up against the world’s fastest cars. The effects are pretty incredible!
Transformers 3 – Dark Of The Moon – Opens July 1
Michael Bay and producer Steven Spielberg hatch a story that begins on July 20th, 1969. For young audiences who weren’t born yet – that was the day Apollo 11 landed on the moon… a giant leap for mankind and a major event in U.S. history. Of course, this is the world of blockbuster movies! So our favoriteÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and learn its secrets, which could turn the tide in the Transformers’ final battle. If you’re a fan, you understand what all that means. If you’re not, this will likely mean nothing to you. Star Shia LeBeouf is back for round three.
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 2 – July 15th opening
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. And our little wizards are all grown up, and richer than most of us can ever hope to be. But I digress. In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world are reaching a fevered pitch. Can someone give Potter a break already? Potter may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort. It all ends here. I’m guessing Potter will win… you? If you read the book… don’t tell me!
Captain America – The First Avenger – July 22nd

The Smurfs in 3D – June 29th
When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours — in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
Stars Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria, and features the voices of Katy Perry, George Lopez, and more.
Cowboys Versus Aliens – Opens July 29th
This one sounds strange at first – an “only in Hollywood” kind of idea. It’s 1873. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Arizona Territory. A stranger (Daniel Craig – best known as James Bond) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). It’s a town that lives in fear.
But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known.
Rise of the Planet Of The Apes – August 5th
James Franco plays a San Francisco scientist with a drug that could potentially change the world – not only helping the brain repair itself, but also dramatically boosting brain function. When it is tried out on Apes, their advancement is dramatic… and leads to terrifying consequences. You have GOT to watch this trailer!
