Summer Movie Season: July 2010

filmreel

Summer is full in swing, so what movies can be expect in the month of July? This July seems to be the month of potential box office hits. M. Night Shyalaman directs “The Last Airbender”, based on the animated series, which kicks off the month and is a potential blockbuster. The 3D animated film “Despicable Me” is sure to draw in big numbers as well.

The team behind Disney’s National Treasure, team up to bring us “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”. The film stars National Treasure’s Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel (“She’s Out of My League”). I think this film will either be a big hit or a big miss.

Christopher Nolan (“The Dark Knight”) directs “Inception” which seems like the most intriguing film of the month. The film stars Academy Award nominees Leonardo DiCaprio (“The Departed”) and Ellen Page (“Juno”).

Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie (“Girl Interrupted”) returns to action in the action thriller “Salt”. Is Jolie a Russian spy, or is she being set up? Looks like it is a cross between The Bourne Identity and The Fugitive.

My spotlight pick of the month is “Charlie St. Cloud” starring Zac Efron. Looks like it will be a bit of a tear jerker.

Well that’s my July overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out this month and check back next month for more Summer Movie Season previews.

“Whip It” marks the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore and it stars Academy Award nominee Ellen Page (“Juno”), Academy Award Winner Marcia Gay Harden (“Pollock”), Kristen Wiig (“SNL”), and Juliette Lewis (“The Other Sister”).

Synopsis:
A small town beauty pageant contestant (Page) trades in her crown for skates and joins a roller derby team.

“Be your own hero” is the movie’s motto and this movie is full of heart, guts, and laughs. I wouldn’t label “Whip It” as just your ordinary chick-flick, I think it is a film that anyone can relate to. It’s about self discovery, and following your dreams! Plus, the action sequences will have you cheering for more!
