With the release of movies like â€œOblivion,â€ it is obvious that the cinema slump is coming to an end and the summer movie season is quickly approaching. Â Here are some movies to look forward to once finals are over and you have some time to relax and escape the summer heat in the cool air-conditioned theater.
â€œIron Man 3â€ (May 3)
Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow reunite for Iron Manâ€™s third installment, hitting theaters next week. Â â€œIron Man 3â€ is one of the most anticipated movies for this summer, according to Fandango, starting the season out right. In this installment, Tony Stark (Iron Man) must use his genius to face Mandarin, an â€œenemy whose reach knows no bounds.â€
â€œThe Great Gatsbyâ€ (May 10)
With a high-profile cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher, this film has generated a lot of hype. Â In this adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgeraldâ€™s novel, Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) is drawn into the lavish life of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), which is not all that it initially seems.
â€œStar Trek Into Darknessâ€Â (May 17)
The â€œStar Trekâ€ sequel is also on the most anticipated list. Â In this film, the Enterprise crew returns home only to learn that an â€œunstoppable force of terrorâ€ has destroyed the fleet and caused a state of crisis. Â Captain Kirk must lead the crew to save the day once more.
â€œFast and the Furious 6â€Â (May 24)
Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are back in the sixth installment of â€œFast and the Furious.â€ Â This time Dom and the team must help to bring a rival gang down in order to clear their records, stop running and come home.
â€œThe Hangover 3â€ (May 24)
Even though this time there is no wedding or bachelor party, the gang still manages to find plenty of trouble…er, â€œadventure.â€ The guys decide to take Alan to a mental hospital and, as usual, things go awry and they end up back in their Las Vegas roots.
â€œMan of Steelâ€ (June 14)
This movie is one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the summer â€” and itâ€™s easy to see why. Superman is getting a dark, gritty reboot not unlike Christopher Nolanâ€™s â€œBatmanâ€ trilogy.
â€œThe Wolverineâ€ (July 26)
With the success of the â€œX-Menâ€ series and the first standalone film, audiences seem to be looking forward to the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, who heads to Japan in his latest outing.
