1. The Hangover Part 2
The Wolfpack is back! The grand Hangover sequel is scheduled to premiere on May 26th, and it’s expected to be a huge success. Especially due to the fact that the first Hangover movie, released in 2009, turned out to be a surprise blockbuster, earning a massive $277.3 million during that summer. This time, the boys head out to Thailand, only to find themselves in another post-blackout misadventure. The movie stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha.
This movie is basically the first comedy of the summer, scheduled to premiere soonish, on May 13th. A lot of people look at it as the… female version of The Hangover, because it follows a bridesmaid’s efforts to please a group of other snooby and rich bridesmaids at events which lead up to her best friend’s wedding. Producer of this movie is Judd Apatow, also known for Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
3. Bad Teacher
Bad teacher is a comedy centered around a foul-mouthed, junior high teacher who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague . The movie stars Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel and is scheduled to premiere on June 24th.
4. Horrible Bosses
Another comedy which will probably generate a lot of buzz, mainly because of the cast. Jennifer Aniston, Collin Farell, Jason Bateman and Kevin Spacey return together on the big screen, on July 8th. The plot? Three friends conspire to murder their awful bosses when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness. Exciting, isn’t it?
5. Larry Crowne
Have you missed Julia Roberts? If so, you will be pleased to see her this summer in Larry Crowne, a movie which centers around a middle-aged man who, after being fired, decides to return to college and reinvent himself. The movie is directed by Tom Hanks, who also plays the leading role. It will hit American theaters on July 1st.
6. Cowboys & Aliens
I have to admit I am particularly excited about Cowboys & Aliens. With a theatrical trailer that blew my mind and Olivia Wilde looking better than ever, I can strongly say this is one of the most-anticipated summer blockbusters, scheduled to premiere on July 29th. It also stars Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford and it is based on the graphic novel by Fred Van Lente. Synopsis? Cowboys versus aliens. What more do you need? 🙂
7. The Smurfs
This summer, Smurf happens! Katy Perry, Neil Patrick Harris and Fred Armisen star in a comedy about the adorable tiny blue creatures, that are chased by the evil Gargamel out of their village and stumble into our world. Don’t make plans on July 29th – the Smurfs are scheduled to conquer cinemas all around the world! In 3D.
8. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
No, we didn’t forget about Harry. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, we left our hero and his friends in the search of the other Horcruxes for destroying Lord Voldemort’s immortality. How will the 8th and final movie turn out? Well, tune in on July 15, when the final part of the saga will premiere in the US.
9. The Tree of Life
Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain play the leading role in a movie that centers around a family with three boys in the 1950s. The tree of life is directed by Terrence Malick and will premiere on May 16th at the Cannes festival. It will also hit American theaters on May 27th.
10. Crazy, Stupid, Love
Starring Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Emma Stone and Julianne Moore, Crazy, Stupid, Love will premiere on July 29th. A father’s life unravels while he deals with a marital crisis and tries to manage his relationship with his children. If the movie turns out as least as good as the trailer, I will personally be satisfied.
