Movies this Summer!
As summer arrives so does a whole lot of boredom. The heat, the pollution and more reently, the traffic all just kinda trim your options to just a few. Is so much easier to just head to the nearest theatre and catch the latest flick that’s playing. So this week we give you all the Hollywood releases you can look forward too this summer.

Watchmen

Probably one of the most awaited films of DC comis enthusiasts this year, "Watchmen" is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the "Doomsday Clock" – which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union – is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion – a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers – Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity... but who is watching the Watchmen? Catch Watchmen this March in a theatre near you. Watch Trailer


Fast And Furious

8 years after the first release of the series, the Fast and the Furious franchise is back to burn some treads at the big screen. After failing to impress with earlier renditions of the franchise, Justin Lee takes over the direction of this seemingly promising version. After dropping the word ‘the’ from the initial title, the original speedsters are back to claim their turf. Now the drifting careers of Paul Walker and Vin Diesel have forced them back for this fourth installment, which plans to return to the format of the first outing - before the series got carried away on thin plots and superficial action scenes. The story here has Diesel and Walker teaming up with the FBI to bring down a heroin importer. Watch Trailer


X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Rendition director Gavin Hood takes us back seventeen years before the first X-Men movie, to explore the origins of Wolverine. Didn’t we already do that in X-Men 2? Whatever. The film will cover Wolverine’s discovery of his mutant abilities, and his experiences with the secret Government funded program “Weapon X” – whose aim it is to turn willing and unwilling mutants into weapons. Could this be next summer’s Batman Begins? Or will the bad early buzz build fatal momentum? Watch Trailer



Star Trek

J.J. Abrams tackles one of the most sensitive areas of sci-fi culture: Star Trek. Recasting all the iconic roles, and doing so on a budget twice that of the previous Star Trek movie, is a massive risk, so expect adoration or crucifixion. Kevin Smith has already seen the movie and loves it. If this reboot works, there will be many more installments to come…Watch Trailer


Angels And Demons

This ones been long due. The Da Vinci Code may have received mixed reviews but that hasn’t kept Ron Howard from hitting up the prequel too - Angels And Demons. The plot follows Robert Langdon (Hanks) as he tries to stop a secret society from destroying the Vatican. Avid readers say it’s a better novel than its more famous follow up. But now all the Da Vinci hype has well and truly died down, and anticipation for this seems to be just about zero, Angels And Demons presents one of the most unpredictable prospects of the summer. Watch Trailer



Terminator Salvation

The terminator franchise is back. It’s now post apocalyptic 2018, the world has been all but destroyed by Skynet and John Connor (Christian Bale) is leading the resistance. When he meets a stranger named Marcus, whose last memory is being on death row, Connor must decide if he has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. Interesting premise. Surely Bale wouldn’t agree to star if this didn’t have some serious character curves… Arnie is rumoured to be back in a small role, using a cgi head on a body double. Should we be worried it’s directed by McG (Charlie’s Angels)? Watch Trailer


Dragonball Evolution

DBZ fans rejoice. The big screen adaption is finally here. But chances are, you’ll are going to be disspointed. Dragonball Evolution is based on the Dragonball manga created by Akira Toriyama. Unlike the animated series, In the movie, a chosen warrior must save mankind from enemy aliens who have come to destroy the earth. The warrior, a young man, must find the dragon balls which were once created by seven mystics in a past effort to protect earth from the evil enemies. Watch Trailer


Crank: High Voltage

Picking up immediately after he hits the ground at the end of Crank, Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) is kidnapped by a gang of Chinese medics. On an operating table, they attempt to harvest his organs. But after they remove his heart and replace it with an electronic temporary one, Chev wakes up and kills the medics. He then has to chase after the gang who has stolen his heart. At the same time, he must keep shocking himself with regular jolts of electricity to keep himself alive.

Other characters who re-appear include Doc Miles (Dwight Yoakam), Eve (Amy Smart) and Orlando (Reno Wilson). Watch Trailer


The Hannah Montana Movie

If Disney are good at one thing, other than revolutionary animation, it’s creating iconic fads and making millions off the under 15s. Hannah Montana is the latest carefully calculated phenomena to capture the hearts, minds and fashions of the young and impressionable. After the TV series, live tour and IMAX concert show comes the, somewhat inevitable, movie. In case you’ve been living under a rock, or are over the age of 15, ‘Hannah Montana’ is the alias of a high school girl who lives a duel life as a pop star and a normal teenager. Montana is played by Miley Cyrus, daughter of 90s country sensation Billy Ray Cyrus. Watch Trailer


Night At The Museum 2: Battle Of The Smithsonian

Night At The Museum was an unexpected box office smash back in Christmas 2006, so some sort of follow up was inevitable. This could have easily been a sloppy spin off with none of the original cast, but instead everyone from the original movie, even the likes of Ricky Gervais and Steve Coogan, have returned for the sequel. This time action shifts to the Smithsonian in Washington D.C., where the old museum gems are being housed while their museum is closed for renovations. Expect lots of Ben Stiller being chased up corridors by historical figures. Watch Trailer


Pixar’s Up

As much as film critics would love to pretend otherwise, cinemagoers were split on WALL-E. Of course it appealed to reviewers with its beautiful cinematography, mind blowing animation, political messages and elongated arty shots. But for the actual target audience, kids, it was half-on, half-off. Boredom was not uncommon. “Up” is another unconventional plot for an animated feature. From what we can assume, it’s a sweet story of an Old Man who wants to live out his dead wife’s life long dream to explore the mountains. He does this by befriending a young boy who is an exploration enthusiast. I can’t wait to see what Pixar have got ‘up’ their sleeves heh heh heh. Watch Trailer
