It will be an awesome summer

One month from now the summer season will start, and I think this year will be great one. This is 12 reasons why this summer is a great one.

Iron Man

Release Date: May 2nd, 2008
Director: Jon Favreau (Elf, Zathura)
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges

It is the first summer film, and each time I see the trailer I get more exited. Everything about this trailer and this movie look perfect.The movie was written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Mark Fergus (Children of Men, First Snow), and Hawk Ostby (Children of
Men, First Snow).

Speed Racer

Release Date: May 9th, 2008
Director: Larry Wachowski & Andy Wachowski (The Matrix Trilogy)
Starring: Emile Hirsch, Christina Ricci, John Goodman, Susan Sarandon, Matthew Fox

It is literally live-action cartoon. Wachowski brothers literally replaced all the cartoon characters with real actors, but kept the same colors, look, style, focus, everything.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Release Date: May 16th, 2008
Director: Andrew Adamson (Shrek, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe)
Starring: Georgie Henley, William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Ben Barnes

I did like the first and from the trailer it looks a lot darker, grungier, and more intense. The story is that the Perverse siblings return to Narnia, where they are enlisted to once again help ward off an evil king and restore the rightful heir to the land’s throne, Prince Caspian.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Release Date: May 22nd, 2008
Director: Steven Spielberg (Every one should know who is he)
Starring: Harrison Ford, Shia LaBeouf, Cate Blanchett, Karen Allen, Ray Winstone

He protected the power of the divine. He saved the cradle of civilization. He triumphed over the armies of evil. Now he’s back! Indiana Jones returns this summer in a new adventure that stretches from New Mexico to South America. directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg with a story by George Lucas and screenplay by David Koepp (Mission: Impossible, Spider-Man, War of the Worlds). The movie is the fourth in the Indiana Jones series and takes place 30 years after Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in the 1950s

Incredible Hulk

Release Date: June 13th, 2008
Director: Louis Leterrier (The Transporter, Unleashed)
Starring: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt, Tim Blake Nelson

The movie is a completely new envisioning of the big green abomination that has no connection to Ang Lee’s 2003 Hulk film

Get Smart

Release Date: June 20th, 2008
Director: Peter Segal (Naked Gun 33 1/3, Anger Management, 50 First Dates)
Starring: Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson, Terence Stamp, Alan Arkin

Steve Carell, have to do good in this movie especially after Evan Almighty the biggest flop in 2007. The Trailer looks funny and I hope it does will in the box office.


Release Date: July 2nd, 2008
Director: Peter Berg (The Rundown, Friday Night Lights)
Starring: Will Smith, Charlize Theron, Jason Bateman)

A hard-living superhero who has fallen out of favor with the public enters into a questionable relationship with the wife of the public relations professional who’s trying to repair his image. The trailer is very funny.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Release Date: July 11th, 2008
Director: Guillermo del Toro (Blade II, Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth)
Starring: Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, Doug Jones, Luke Goss, Thomas Kretschmann

The mythical world starts a rebellion against humanity in order to rule the Earth, so Hellboy and his team must save the world from the rebellious creatures.

The Dark Knight

Release Date: July 18th, 2008
Director: Christopher Nolan (Memento, Batman Begins, The Prestige)
Starring: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal

Christian Bale is back as The Dark Knight and the late Heath Ledger as the Joker, what do you want more. This is already on its way to becoming the best movie of 2008.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

Release Date: August 1st, 2008
Director: Rob Cohen (Fast and the Furious, xXx, Stealth)
Starring: Brendan Fraser, Maria Bello, Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh, Luke Ford

In the Far East, trouble-seeking father-and-son duo Rick and Alex O’Connell unearth the mummy of the first Emperor of Qin – a shape-shifting entity who was cursed by a wizard centuries ago.

Tropic Thunder

Release Date: August 15th, 2008
Director: Ben Stiller (The Cable Guy, Zoolander)
Starring: Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr, Brandon T. Jackson, Jay Baruchel

It is Ben Stiller movie-within-a-movie comedy about the Vietnam War. The story is a group of actors shooting a war movie includes Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.), an over-the-top Australian-born method actor who has gone to extremes to get into character, novice thesp Sandusky (Jay Baruchel), gross-out comedy star Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black), Four Leaf Tayback (Nick Nolte), the real-life inspiration for the film, pampered action superstar Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller) and rap star Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson).

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Release Date: August 15th, 2008
Director: Dave Filoni

You might have thought that no Star Wars movie would ever show in theaters again, at least not until Lucas re-releases them in 3D sometime after 2010. Good news – that’s no longer the case, Warner Brothers decided to kick off the series with this theatrical release after they were shown the first footage from the series. Star Wars: The Clone Wars will run around 100 minutes in length and will take place between Episodes II and III. Anakin is not Darth Vader yet and the story will be focused around the ensuing Clone Wars that began in Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
