School’s out for summer! School’s out forever! Not. Sorry Alice Cooper it’s just for a few months. But one amazing thing about summer, besides the lack of pencils, books, and teacher’s dirty looks (again thanks Alice!) are all the great summer blockbusters that come out, and this summer is no exception. So in order of release date here are my top highly anticipated movies for this summer:
- Star Trek: Into Darkness (May 15) –The inevitably epic sequel to the 2009 reboot. The only way it could be better than the first one was if Benedict Cumberbatch was in it.
- The Hangover Part III (May 24) –We have come to far not to see it to the end. I for one can’t wait to see what mischief the wolf pack manages to get themselves into for this final installment on what has unexpectedly become a record shattering comedy franchise.
- Now You See Me (May 31) –Words cannot express my excitement for this movie. It hasn’t been publicized that much, but with this all star cast there is just no way it will be anything less than amazing. Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Jake Gyllenhaal, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and MORGAN FREEMAN (to name a few). Yeah, you know it will be good.
- The Internship (June 7) –Summer just wouldn’t be complete without a reunion of the wedding crashers. 1) This movie looks hilarious 2) It’s Owen and Vince 3)DYLAN O’BRIEN IS IN IT. Done.
- This Is the End (June 12) –I think this entire summer is just going to be filled with laughing, because literally every hilarious person ever is in this movie, plus Hermione. Literally everyone.
- Monsters University (June 21) –Of course what would summer be without a littler blast from the past, return to those good ‘ol childhood days.
- The Wolverine (July 26) –It’s X-Men, don’t really need to say anything else.
- Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (August 16) –So Percy Jackson is one of my favorite book series ever. Now, that being said the first Percy Jackson movie was complete crap. They didn’t even get the plot right. THE PLOT! Awful. I know you can’t please everyone, but getting the basic story line right might have been nice for all of us book fans who went to see the movie. Yet, ever the optimist, my hope is that with a new director, slight casting changes, and Annabeth almost having the right hair color there will be some redemption in it for those of us willing to give them a second chance.
