Break out the POPCORN
It's May 1 and officially the beginning of the summer movie season. YAY!!!! Every year I wonder what will be out there and this year everything looks sooooo damn gooood!
May I say HUGH JACKMAN???? Yeah, I know Wolverine has that funky, weird hair but damn. Only Hugh could pull that doo off and still manage to be sexy as hell. I can't wait for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This movie also features Ryan Reynolds who is uber-yum! Gotta love a man who is not only hot but FUNNY! I love him to death. I was also surprised to learn that Will I Am, the multi-talented writer and musician of Black Eyed Peas fame will make his acting debut as a mutant transporter named Wraithe.
And what else awaits us at the theater this summer? The movie Star Trek, featuring a ton of new, young actors. I've been seeing the clips of this and it looks fun. We also have Christian Bale in the next Terminator movie and Shia LaBeouf in Transformers 2. I don't know about you but I adore Shia. To me, he has that 'everyman' quality that makes him so likeable.
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince also comes out this summer. Every year the kids get older but I think better and it'll be fun to see what they do with this.
So yeah. I'm ready to hit a few matinees and see as many of these movies as possible. It will be interesting to see how well attended the theaters will be this summer considering the poor economy. So far, we've seen books continue to sell and I suspect movies will provide a perfect escape for lots of folks this summer.
What movies are on your 'can't miss' list?
