The upcoming movie releases for the month of June can be summarized into comedies, remakes, and sequels. Opening weekend of June we have “Get Him to the Greek” directed by Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”). Russell Brand reprises his role as Aldous Snow and Jonah Hill (“Knocked Up”) has the job of trying to get Aldous Snow to a performance at the Greek Theater. Also opening this weekend is “Killers” starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl, “Splice” starring Academy Award winner Adrien Brody (“The Pianist”), and family film “Marmaduke”.
The “A-Team” hits the big screen this month as well as the remake for “The Karate Kid” starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith. DC Comics’s next adaptation, “Jonah Hex”, starring Josh Brolin and Megan Fox (“Transformers”) looks to be a potential box office hit but I think the big box office hit of the month will be “Toy Story 3” in 3D.
Toward the end of the month Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz team up for “Knight & Day” which is an action comedy. Funny men Adam Sandler, David Spade, Kevin James, Chris Rock, and Rob Schneider are in the comedy “Grown Ups”. Lastly the latest installment of the “Twilight” series “Eclipse” will be theaters on June 30, 2010, which is sure to be a big box office hit.
My spotlight pick of the month is “Ondine” starring Colin Farrell. It seems like a more contemporary rendition of “Splash” with more emotion.
