The past few years, I have eagerly anticipated the arrival of the “Summer Movie Preview” issue of Entertainment Weekly in my mailbox. I am a movie nut. I love the high-quality Oscar-worthies that come out in the autumn and Christmas season, but I also love the action-filled popcorn flicks that fill the summer days. I’m not nearly as discriminating with my movie viewing as I am in my reading – and even like the testosterone-fueled action flicks. I went to see both The Expendables and Battle: Los Angeles with my dad, and was one of the only women in the theater.
There are too many movies that I am looking forward to this summer to put the trailers all in one post, so this is part one of a three-part series highlighting the flicks that will have me shelling out my dollars this summer. (While the first two posts won’t have any order of preference, I am saving the three films I’m most anxious to see for last.)
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – My kids and I all can’t wait for this one! (May 20th)
Something Borrowed – I haven’t read the book, but love the trailer. (May 6th)
Super 8 – Sci-fi by J.J. Abrams? Yes, please! (June 10th)
Green Lantern – Ryan Reynolds. Enough said, right? (June 17th)
