I am Indie at heart but have a soft spot for certain action/adventure genre films.
In order, here are the summer blockbusters that I absolutely can’t wait to see in the theater later this year:
The X-Files 2
Unfortunately, no official trailer or poster has been released yet. The photo above, however, is a promo still from the film.
Click above to watch one of the best movie trailers I’ve ever seen…which isn’t a surprise given that the film is written & directed by the Wachowski Brothers (the Matrix trilogy). Starring Emile Hirsch, Matthew Fox (Lost alert!), Christina Ricci, Susan Sarandon, John Goodman, and Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights).
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, two words: Cate Blanchett. And she’s playing a villain. LOVE it.
Though I am not a comic book person per se, I do love big screen adaptations and variations on a superhero. This is directed by Jon Favreau and stars Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges and Samuel L. Jackson.
Another contender for my time, money and attention is M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening, which comes out on Friday, June 13. I like his style and most of his films, but I did not see Lady in the Water and I disliked Unbreakable. This one looks like a return to form, so I’m intrigued.
Which 2008 films are you most looking forward to?
