Top 8 movies I’m looking forward this summer

…not to mention 5 rather iffy prospects

The Amazing Spider-Man 2


Final trailer


TV featurette#6


It’s On Again – Alicia Keys f. Kendrick Lamar (prod.  by Pharrell)

Andrew Garfield perfectly captures the wisecracking nature of Peter Parker perfectly, and if the first movie is any indicator, the next one is definitely going to be a step up.  The fact that Pharrell is actively involved with the film’s soundtrack should be yet another feather in his Vivienne Westwood ranger’s hat…

Godzilla


Official extended trailer


International trailer

One can say it’s about time a Hollywood studio give the Big G his respect due – his distinctive silhouette and roar all there and accounted for!!!

Guardians Of The Galaxy


ScreenJunkies’ WTF is Guardians Of The Galaxy


Mr. Sunday To Sunday’s All About the Guardians Of The Galaxy

A welcome gamble for Marvel Studios – they’re spending that much just to reacquaint casual fans with the space opera comic from which it was based on.  If the trailer is a yardstick, get set for a bawdy joyride….

A Million Ways To Die In The West


Red Band Trailer

Speaking of bawdy (not to mention bloody) joyrides…

X-Men: Days Of Future Past


Trailer #2

Kinda digging the funky 70s threads Wolvie, Mystique and the rest are sporting here…keeping with the timescale established in X-Men: First Class

Jupiter Ascending


Trailer #2

Are we seeing a career renaissance for siblings Andy & Lana Wachovski here?

Maleficent


Trailer #3 (now with wings!!!)

Can’t wait for Angelina Jolie to deliver all these campy-good lines as she can only do so – and Lana Del Rey’s rendition of the Sleeping Beauty theme song

Transformers: Age Of Extinction


Trailer #1

You sold me on Optimus Prime riding that Dinobot like a bronco here…

Now, for the five “iffy” ones:

Fast & Furious 7


First look trailer

Dunno how the franchise shall carry on with its momentum now that Paul Walker’s out of the picture

Hercules: The Thracian Wars


Trailer 1

Let’s see if The Rock’s imposing physical presence can banish all imagery of Twilight twink Kellan Lutz‘ desecration of the Greek demig0d’s adventures (paging Lou Ferrigno…)

Planes: Fire & Rescue


Trailer 1: Courage


Trailer 2: Thunder

The first Planes nearly bored me to death – looks like the sequel’s gonna set aside El Chupacabra and Ishani, the two characters that were the standouts in that two-hour aerial stretch o’ ho-hum.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Trailer #1

The Nickelodeon CGI cartoons are already good, so why another live-action turn for the “Heroes In A Half-Shell”, then.  On the other hand, Megan Fox is once again looking good – at least, we’d be spared Vanilla Ice and his “Ninja Rap”

“April, does my back look too fat in these???”


No ninja no ninja no ninja NOOOO!!!

The Expendables 3


Teaser trailer #2 – roll call

Bigger, yeah, but badder? This time, the (expanded) Expendables face a renegade co-founder played by Mel Gibson.  Bruce Willis‘ presence seems much missed here though (even when his excessive $ demands got his butt kicked from this gaggle) but seriously…srsly…SERIOUSLY…Kellan frickin’ Lutz?
