Summer’s here, you guys! And who needs the beach when there are a ton of great movies coming out every weekend.
There’s a little something for everyone in our collection of 10 hot summer movies. We’ve got a few hilarious comedies, the requisite summer sequels and even a drama just for fun!
We just planned your Friday night activity until Labor Day. You’re welcome. Find out what movies are in store for you this summer…
X-Men: First Class
We told you the summer movie season starts this Friday! The latest X-Men film is a prequel and tells the story of how Magneto and Professor X became friends/enemies. Buzz says the movie is pretty darn good and there’s PLENTY of eye candy. June 3.
So no one really knows what this movie is actually about. The trailer shows some train crash in a small town and then some aliens or something. Whatever. It’s directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg so it’s going to be good. June 10.
So if there’s one movie to watch this summer, it’s probably this film starring Cameron Diaz as, um, a bad teacher. Basically, Cameron plays a teacher who thinks she needs big boobs to woo the new teacher Justin Timberlake so she has to think of ways to pay for said boobs (like winning the school’s bonus for the highest scoring class). Sounds dumb, but the trailer looks AWESOME. Also, it stars Phyllis from the office. June 24.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
I sort of feel like Transformers is sort of like a bad ex. You know, like it worked out pretty well the first time and then you broke up and then you tried it out a second time and it was horrible. But hey, maybe third time’s the charm? There’s no Megan Fox, but Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is just as hot in a non-trashy sort of way. June 29.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
It’s the last Harry Potter, you guys. Of course you have to go see this. I don’t even care if you didn’t read the books. Or that you didn’t see the part 1. I don’t know about you, but I grew up with this shit so the last movie of the most epic story ever told basically means the end to my childhood. What should I even be feeling right now? July 15.
Friends With Benefits
OK so this movie kind of came out already (you know, that one with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman). But this sex comedy stars Justin Timberlake, who’s arguably hotter than Ashton depending on what you’re into, and Mila Kunis, who’s arguably funnier than Natalie, as two people who are friends with benefits. Wow, shocker. Anyway, there are some Third Eye Blind jokes and shots of JT without a shirt so we’re down. Who wants to guess what happens at the end? July 22.
Cowboys & Aliens
Haha. I think this film takes itself a little too seriously. Anyway, it traces the epic battle between cowboys and aliens, you know like Alien vs. Predator or Megashark vs. Giant Octopus. But Daniel Craig! And Harrison Ford! And Olivia Wilde! July 29.
30 Minutes Or Less
Check out this hilarious action comedy starring the adorable Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari as two guys forced to rob a bank. Bonus: it’s sort of based on a true story of a pizza delivery guy who died while trying to rob a bank with a bomb strapped to him. Things didn’t end so well for that guy, but we’re thinking Jesse and Aziz will have better luck. August 12.
Our only drama of the bunch, The Help is based on a book that topped the New York Times Bestseller list back in 2009. Starring Emma Stone and Bryce Dallas Howard, the film chronicles the lives of people in Mississippi in the 1960′s. August 12.
Final Destination 5
Well we started with a plane crash and have since seen a car crash, roller coaster crash and a race car crash. So, naturally, a bridge collapse was next. How original. Anyway, the FD films are always fun and this time, it’s in 3D. Oh, and what’s even more awesome? There will def be a FD 6 and 7. August 12.
