Summer movies we can’t wait to see

“Dark Shadows”


“Dark Shadows” is the newest creation from director Tim Burton.

The movie stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Chloe Grace Moretz and Bella Heathcote.

“Dark Shadows” is about a vampire (Depp) who wakes up in 1972 after being underground for two centuries.

The movie is based on a soap opera that took place in the late 1960s and early 1970s which Burton and Depp are both fans.

“What To Expect When You’re Expecting”

Rated PG-13

This star-packed comedy reveals the secrets and some obvious things that comes with pregnancy.

The film stars Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks and Chris Rock.

It is a quirky version of the New York Times bestselling book.

What can you expect? A baby, obviously.

“That’s My Boy”

Rated R

In this raunchy new comedy, two past and present Saturday Night Live favorites Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler share their relationship with the world.

Sandler’s character pregnates a school teacher at a very young age but leaves his son.

He reconnects with his son, played by Samberg, years later when he shows up at his residence unexpectedly.

The two were meant to be casted for these roles.

“Magic Mike”


Without a doubt, this may be the most anticipated film of the summer for women everywhere.

“Magic Mike,” starring a slew of men like Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer is a movie about male strippers and a look into their world.

Tatum brought the idea for his movie to director, Steven Soderbergh, about his own career as a stripper before he made it in the acting world.

“The Amazing Spider-Man”


The original movie series, brought to life by Tobey Maguire, managed to bring in $900 million and is now being brought to the big screen once again.

Andrew Garfield stars as Peter Parker, Spider-Man himself.

“As a kid I?loved the character,” Garfield told Entertainment Weekly. “And I?pretended I was Peter Parker.”

Emma Stone is also in the film.

“The Dark Knight Rises”

Rated PG-13

Eight years following the events from Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight,” the trilogy closes with “The Dark Knight Rises.”

In the film, Batman, played by Christian Bale, meets some new faces, including villians Selina Kyle (Catwoman), played by Anne Hathaway and Bane, played by Tom Hardy.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard are also featured.

“The Campaign”


Starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis, the film is a comedic look at life on the campaign trail.

The movie, directed by Jay Roach, follows Cam Brady (Ferrell), a southern congressman whose seat is threatened when a scandal breaks allowing running mate Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) to step in.

The movie runs through all of the high and low points in their campaigns.

Be ready to laugh.

“Premium Rush”


Not only is Joseph Gordon-Levitt starring in “The Dark Knight Rises” but he is also in this action-packed film.

“Premium Rush” follows a young man, played by Levitt, who works for a package delivery company in New York City.

When Levitt gets ahold of some bad cargo, he finds himself in more trouble than he ever expected.

I guess the rule “don’t shoot the messenger” doesn’t apply.
