We’re inching right up to the summer movie season. Which of this year’s potential blockbusters are you most excited to see?
Some might say that last week’s release of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ inaugurated the summer early this year. However, for the purposes of this poll, I’m defining the summer movie season as May 1st through August 30th. Quibble with that if you must.
The following is by no means a definitive list of all the films that will be released this summer. I merely looked through the release schedule and picked out the action, sci-fi and fantasy movies that traditionally make a lot of money in the summer. If I’ve missed something that you’re eagerly anticipating, vote “Other” and tell us in the Comments below. You may vote for as many options as you’d like.
Of these, my fingers are crossed that ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ will turn out well. It certainly has a lot of potential. Unfortunately, both the franchise and director Bryan Singer have spotty track records.
I also think that ’22 Jump Street’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ look like they should be a lot of fun. I’m cautiously optimistic for ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and ‘Jupiter Ascending’, but those could easily go either way. (Keep in mind that I liked the Wachowskis’ ‘Cloud Atlas’ more than most.) Can the ‘Godzilla’ reboot possibly live up to the awesomeness of its trailers?
Which of these movies do you plan to see in the theater, and which can you wait for Blu-ray?
