The Summer of 2013 is actually shaping up to look pretty good for film

Here's what we got so far...

Iron Man 3
The Great Gatsby
Star Trek into Darkness
The Hangover part III

Yes, three of those are sequels, but to interesting franchises. I didn't like The Hangover part II, but I like the actors in those films a lot so I'm interested in seeing if they can come together and make a superior third film. Also, I find a lot to like about the first Hangover still, having watched it recently for the 20th time.

After Earth
The End of the World
Man of Steel
World War Z
Kick-Ass 2
Monsters University

I'll be interested in seeing if M. Night Shyamalan can finally find his groove back, maybe Will Smith can help. Seth Rogen and his friend Evan Goldberg wrote and directed The End of the World, it has a great comedic cast. Though the title too much resembles "The World's End" which is Edgar Wright's upcoming film.

As for the rest, they could go either way, like the first two. But at this point, they look interesting. Though Kick-Ass 2 may suffer greatly since Matthew Vaughn isn't the director.

The Lone Ranger
Pacific Rim

Really the only two July titles I'm halfway interested in. The Lone Ranger may be fun, may be stupid, perhaps both.

Pacific Rim though is Guillermo del Toro's long-awaited return to the big screen after a five year absence and he promises it'll be big. Can't wait.


Ok that's the only one in August that I'm looking forward to. Neill Blomkamp's much anticipated follow-up to his debut "District 9." Starring Matt Damon. It'll be great to see just how good of a filmmaker Blomkamp really is after hitting a home run with his first.
