This summer is going to be a huge summer for the film industry. I am calling it “The Summer of Sequels” because so many of this summer’s hits are continuations of already hit movies. Spiderman 3 has set the bar high for the rest of the summer making $160 million its opening week. I believe this is a summer to break records, but which film has what it takes?
Next week we will see Shrek the Third take its whack at the charts. Shrek the Third is the sequel to an already popular animated series. The Shrek series has been a hit for children and adults alike. It features many big name actors such as Mike Meyers, and Eddie Murphy. But has it outstayed it’s welcome? I predict that it will be the biggest children’s, animated movie of the year. We will find out soon. Shrek the Third hits theaters May 18.
May 25 is another big day for movie fans this summer, the stunning finale to The Pirates of the Caribbean series is set to drop, and drop hard! That’s right, the long-awaited PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLDS END, starring Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightley is finally upon us. The previous two movies have done amazing and have become instant classics. Will PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLDS END do the same? Find out May 25.
The next stop on our summer tour is The Transformers movie. I am nominating this Micheal Bay film for the most bad-ass movie of the summer award. I think that is all that needs to be said. The Transformers movie hits theaters July 4.
Our next summer sequel is HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX. I don’t know much, or care much for Harry Potter, but I am sure that this film will be breaking records. It is my opinion that this will be THE children’s movie of the year. HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX is set to release on July 13.
Our final stop on our Summer of Sequels tour is quite possibly one of the most anticipated movies of all time. This movie is 20 years in the making, we all love them. Guessed it yet? Well, let me tell you The Simpsons Movie! This TV classic is finally hitting the big screen. My prediction, The Simpsons Movie is going to sweep the box office this summer setting records that were once unheard of!.Simpson’s fans worldwide can finally see their beloved Simpson’s up on the silver screen July 27.
That winds down our summer tour. Looks like it is going to be a busy summer for everyone here at MovieGuys.org!
