Summer Movie Season: June 2009

filmreel
The month of May had some big box office hits like “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, “Star Trek”, and “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” but as May comes to a close, can the month of June live up to the summer movie hype?  This June definitely has some potential box office hits too including Will Ferrell’s “Land of the Lost”, and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” with Shia LaBeouf.

Looking at the month of June as a whole, I think the box office hits will be “Land of the Lost” and “Transformers”. Another possible hit could be “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3” starring Denzel Washington and John Travolta.  I think some sleeper hits may include “The Hangover” starring Bradley Cooper (“Alias”, “Weddinig Crashers”), and “Year One” starring Jack Black (“Kung Fu Panda”) and Michael Cera (“Juno”).

Some of the romantic comedies coming out in June include “My Life in Ruins” with “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” star, Nia Vardalos, and “The Proposal” starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Family flicks include Eddie Murphy’s “Imagine That” and what looks to be a real tear jerker, “My Sister’s Keeper” starring Abigail Breslin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) and Cameron Diaz (“There’s Something About Mary”).

My movie footnote pick would be Sam Mendes’s film “Away We Go” starring John Krasinski (“The Office”) and Maya Rudolph (“SNL”). I really admire Sam Mendes’s work, in particular “American Beauty” for which he won an Oscar for, so I just might have to check this movie out. Sam Mendes is currently attached to the “Lost in Austen” adaptation for the big screen. “Lost in Austen” is a TV mini-series about a modern day girl who somehow winds up in the world of “Pride and Prejudice”. To find out more about the “Lost in Austen” remake, read this Variety.com article.

So those are my highlights on some of the movie releases coming out in June, keep reading on in order to check out the full list of June releases.  Be sure to check back when I sum up the July movie releases.
