Last month I saw The Great Gatsby and Star Trek Into Darkness and they were both amazing in different ways! In my opinion, the Baz Luhrman's Gatsby film perfectly transitioned the book to the big screen. It was a great mix of Hollywood and indie with Luhrman's own flair for the dramatic.
Star Trek had me on the edge of my seat the whole time! It had all that I loved about the first movie (the humor, drama, amazing action sequences, the feeling that this is a mismatched group of people coming together, and the funny bromance between Kirk and Spock) and made it even better. The ending was left slightly open, so I'm hoping there will be a third.
Much Ado About Nothing
Shakespeare's classic comedy is given a contemporary spin by Joss Whedon, who filmed this in just 12 days using the original text. The story of sparring lovers, Beatrice and Benedick, shows the dark, sexy, and absurd game that is love. Starring Nathan Fillion, Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Fran Kranz, Sean Maher, and Clark Gregg. (June 7)
This Is The End
This outrageous comedy follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange, catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside and cabin fever sets in, their friendships are tested and they're forced to leave the house to face their fate. Starring James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogan, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Michael Cera. This movie looks ridiculous, but also hilarious. (June 12)
Man of Steel
Directed by Zack Snyder, this is an updated, contemporary story of the boy who was transported to Earth from Krypton and adopted by loving parents, but who feels alienated because of his unique super powers. Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) struggles to find his place in the world, but becomes a hero in order to save the planet he loves. This movie looks like it has a lot of heart as well as action. (June 14)
Taking place before the events of the first movie, Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan can't stand each other. This movie shows how this unlikely pair overcame their differences and became the best of friends. I'm not ashamed to say that I'm looking forward to this prequel to Monsters, Inc, and it's coming out a day before my birthday. *wink wink nudge nudge* (June 21)
Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara (Gemma Arterton) meets a lonely man who provides shelter in his guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) befriends Frank (Caleb Landry Jones) and tells him their secret: they were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As their secret spreads, their past catches up with them. I'm usually not into horror, but this film seems interesting. (June 28)
