Summer Movie Season: July 2011

filmreel

The Summer Movie Season is in full swing! The box office this month is sure to set off fireworks! The films this month are sure to please all as the themes of the month are Fun, Fantasy, Laughs, and Action. The month kicks off with Selena Gomez starring in “Monte Carlo” which is reminiscent of a “Prince and the Pauper” type of theme in terms of mistaken identity of individuals from different social classes.

Following week we have “Horrible Bosses”, which I feel can be a sleeper hit. The film stars Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston, and Colin Farrell as the “Horrible Bosses” while Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and SNL‘s Jason Sudeikis are the employees that work for them. The film also stars Academy Award winner, Jamie Foxx (“Ray”). From the writers of “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”, Kevin James stars in “Zookeeper”, which looks like a cross between “Dr. Dolittle” and “Night at the Museum”. It could be a big hit or a big flop.

Mid-month is probably one of the most anticipated films this summer, which is the final installment of the “Harry Potter” franchise, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II”. This film definitely promises to be a big box office hit. I know I’m excited to see it!

Chris Evans (“Fantastic Four”) is Captain America in the next Marvel comic hero film, “Captain America: The First Avenger”. This film could go either way, but it definitely won’t stop movie goers from going to see it. Also opening with “Captain America”, is “Friends with Benefits” starring Justin Timberlake (“The Social Network”) and Mila Kunis (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”). Not sure how this is any different than No Strings Attached, as it is a similar premise but perhaps it has a different angle.

Toward the end of the month we have “Cowboys & Aliens”. The film stars James Bond star Daniel Craig and Indiana Jones‘ Harrison Ford with direction by “Iron Man” director Jon Favreau and Steven Spielberg producing, this film promises to be a big production. Also opening the same weekend is the 80’s cartoon brought to the screen in CG and in 3D, “The Smurfs” The film stars Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”), Jayma Mays (“Glee”), and Hank Azaria (“Run Fatboy Run”).

My spotlight picks of the month are “The Ledge” and Crazy, Stupid, Love.” “The Ledge” is a thriller that stars Liv Tyler (“Lord of the Rings”) and she is caught in between two men, Charlie Hunnam (“Nicholas Nickelby”) and Patrick Wilson (“Phantom of the Opera”) who have differing religious beliefs as one is an atheist and the other is a devoted Christian. Crazy, Stupid, Love. stars Steve Carrell (“The Office”) in a film that is reminiscent of “Dan in Real Life” but yet seems different in a way. The film also stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”), Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling (“Half Nelson”), and Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei (“My Cousin Vinny”).

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

Ben Stiller and Amy Adams in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

Ben Stiller and Amy Adams in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

Ben Stiller and his Museum exhibit friends are back again with a few more additions. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian was a fun movie that is great for the whole family, in fact, the Night at the Museum sequel beat out Terminator: Salvation to take the top stop at the box office this weekend.  The Box Office numbers report that NATM 2 took in approximately $70 million dollars for the Memorial Day weekend.  I admit this surprises me as I thought the latest installment in the Terminator franchise starring Christian Bale would take the top spot at the Box Office this weekend.

I actually enjoyed this sequel just as much as the first movie. It has the same qualities exhibited in the first film, but with bigger effects.  All of the stars of the first film are back in this sequel but sadly they aren’t as prominent as they were in the first film.  This film focuses more on the new additions introduced in this film.  Amy Adams plays Amelia Earhart and acts as Larry Daley’s (Ben Stiller) love interest.  Hank Azaria plays Kahmunrah, Ahkmenrah’s evil brother who plans to rule the world with the help of Al Capone, Ivan the Terrible, and Napoleon Bonaparte.
