Poster of Prometheus
15. Prometheus
Release Date: June 8

Okay, I’ve only seen the first Alien. Does it matter that I haven’t seen the rest? I don’t think so. The trailer for Prometheus looks FANTASTIC.

Poster of Rock of Ages

14. Rock of Ages
Release Date:June 15
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TT_Ytd21mKg
I’m a huge sucker for musical movies. And Tom Cruise playing a rock star? This hopefully will be a great rock movie for all ages. See what I did there? Yeah you did.

Poster of G.I. Joe: Retaliation13. GI Joe Retaliation
Release Date: June 29
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2YMu52MfqA&feature=fvst
I was skeptical of the first G.I. Joe and it turned out I liked it. The second one can only get better right?

Poster of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

12. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Release Date: June 22
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34x6m-ahGIo
I know a lot of you are thinking, how is this movie not up higher? It’s because I don’t know how to feel about it. I LOVE the blend of genres and I’m interested to see Abraham Lincoln kick some ass, I just hope it’s not another typical vampire movie. I’m over that.

Poster of Ted

Release Date: July 13
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt_OSznnGkY&feature=relmfu

A boy wishes for his teddy bear to come to life. And it does. Then 20 years later, that bear is still around. GENIUS. Seth McFarlane has a way of taking cute adorable things, and making them foul-mouthed and dirty and it’s just HILARIOUS. Throw in Mark Walhberg and Mila Kunis and seriously, this movie will be one of the classics.

10. Total RecallPoster of Total Recall

Release Date: August 3
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWMhADqlPYg
I loved the original with Arnold and I’m a little skeptical of Colin Farrell playing Hauser and that fact that Jessica Biel is in it at all, but I am interested to see what a movie about the future is actually like, well, in the future. I also hear it’s going in a slightly different direction from the original…

Release Date: June 29
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMU7s6cwxEM
Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello…as strippers. Any self-respecting woman will be there to see this movie. Oh yeah, AND the movie has a storyline!

8. Brave 
Release Date: June 22
Trailerhttp://movies.yahoo.com/movie/brave-2012/trailers/
I’m excited for this Pixar movie. The trailer looks so beautiful and every time these movies contain a lot of heart.

Can’t. Wait.

Poster of Men in Black 3

7. Men In Black 3
Release Date: May 25
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoyV49FfjOU
10 years after Men In Black 2, they finally make Men In Black 3…with…Josh Brolin playing a younger version of Tommy Lee Jones. Brilliant. BRILLIANT. And I don’t even need to say more here.

6. Dark Shadows Dark Shadows
Release Date: May 11
Trailerhttp://movies.yahoo.com/movie/dark-shadows/trailers/
Johnny Depp and Tim Burton doing a movie that takes place in the 70’s? Oh and Johnny Depp is a vampire?

Yes please.

Poster of Snow White & the Huntsman5. Snow White and The Huntsman
Release Date: June 1
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55Dq2psogSw
The visuals look fantastic – very Tim Burtonesque, the Queen (Charlize Theron) looks deliciously evil, the twist on the fairy tale story is intritguing…and then the cherry on the cake…Chris Hemsworth. Definitely the Golden Boy of the last few years. I’m definitely excited for this one…

I have high hopes.

4. The Amazing Spiderman 
Release Date: July 3
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tnxzJ0SSOw
I am a sucker for Andrew Garfield and though the timing of the “Reboot” was a little strange, he is the perfect choice for the nerdy Peter Parker. Also, who doesn’t love Emma Stone? I’m looking forward to watching a Spiderman that is actually a bit tough, and a likeable female lead (looking at you Kristen Dunst.)

Battleship

3. Battleship

Release Date: May 18
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDMXkPfxjOc
How do you turn a board game into a movie? I don’t know I guess we’ll find out. Though I think the movie would have been more exciting if it were a combo of Candyland/Battleship, adding the alien element is pretty interesting. Plus those water/battleship/alien sequences look pretty amazing.

2. Batman: The Dark Night Rises The Dark Knight Rises
Release Date: July 20
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GokKUqLcvD8
Tell me anyone who’s NOT excited for the movie. Christopher Nolan breathed new life into this franchise. It’s dark, creepy, and exciting. And I’m also to see Anne Hathaway as Catwoman as well as the other new faces: Joseph Gordon Levitt and Tom Hardy.

And my #1 most anticipated movie of the summer is…

The Avengers 

Release Date: May 4

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOrNdBpGMv8

Basically, if you don’t want to see this movie, then you’re either not a nerd (and face it, we are all nerdy about something), you hate movies, and you’re probably going to die alone and get your face eaten by cats. Avengers IS the movie of the summer. Joss Whedon described Avengers misfits/outcasts who must find a way to work together to save the world. That shows a lot of heart, more than just superhero’s kicking ass. Marvel has a good track record for making action movies and adding Joss Whedon to the mix just takes the cake.
