Harry Potter fans around the world seem to have mixed emotions about the final film in the series. After the last of the books was published, fans still had the movies to look forward to. This will be the 8th and final film, and it promises to delight fans. Daniel Radcliffe has said that as the first film in the two-part Deathly Hallows set built up the story line, the second film will be action packed. Those who haven’t read the books will finally see what becomes of Harry & company, and those who have are anxious to see it played out on the big screen.
The Hangover II (May 26)
One of the funniest movies of the past few years, The Hangover, is getting a sequel. The original cast is back, and this time they are traveling to Bangkok for Stu’s wedding. They are joined by some newcomers, including Jamie Chung as Stu’s fiancée and a cameo by Liam Neeson. Mike Tyson also returns, and it seems we will get to see the childhood version of the gang in a flashback. Hopefully this sequel will be as hysterical as the first film.
Green Lantern (June 11)
This action hero flick stars Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern, a test pilot who is bestowed super powers by a mystical green ring, and joins a squadron who works to keep peace within the universe. Blake Lively and Peter Sarsgaard also star, and the film is directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale). Hopefully this film stands out amongst the multitude of super hero movies we’ve seen lately.
Cowboys and Aliens (July 29)
The movie looks interesting – 1800’s cowboys must battle alien invaders. It also has a promising cast – Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde star. Jon Favreau (Iron Man) directs, so hopefully this film is as action packed as Iron Man, but also contains an engaging story line, also as in Iron Man.
Transformers 3 (July 1)
Some say the Transformers movies need to end, but diehard fans will line up to see the action packed film. Shia LeBeouf returns, but Megan Fox doesn’t. Instead, Rosie Huntington-Whitely plays Rosie. Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel and Patrick Dempsey also have roles in the movie – sure to entice the ladies!
