Spring’s Most Anticipated Movies

Spring is in the air, and with it comes a plethora of new movies to kick off the blockbuster season.  Of them all there are a couple that have the potential to be the highest earners of the year, and a couple that could be big surprises.  Here is our list of movies we can’t wait to see.

The Hunger Games (March 23) is all ready starting to make waves, and it hasn’t even launched yet.  If the movie is as good as it has the potential to be, this one could be the highest grossing movie of the year.  It’s got an amazing cast (with Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence leading the pack), a soundtrack that is attracting attention, and a story that is fairly unique.  With Twilight ending this year, The Hunger Games is most likely the next big book series to be a huge success on the big screen.

American Reunion (April 6) sees the original cast of the American Pie movies back on the big screen.  When the first movie in the series came out in 1999 it turned a lot of heads and made a lot of money.  Like most series though, it lost its charm by the time the third in the series came out, and then they released a few direct to DVD editions with different casts that weren’t very good at all.  It’ll be interesting to see if the old cast will be able to relaunch the series, and if it will be as funny as the first, or if their time has really come and gone.

The Three Stooges (April 13) is mostly on our list to see if it’s a disaster or not.  The original stooge movies are classics, and it’s hard to imagine new people playing the roles made famous in the 1930’s by the Howard brothers and their friend Larry. The trailer looks funny, but can they keep it up over the course of an entire movie?  Probably not.  And if it’s like most Farrelly brothers movies it’ll drag on far too long.  Another bad sign is all the stars who dropped out of this thing before it was even made, including Jim Carrey and Sean Penn.

The Avengers (May 4) brings all the Marvel superheroes we’ve seen in movies over the past few years (well most of them) together for one giant blockbuster.  This one has it all, star power (including 6 Academy Award Nominees), special effects, explosions, and by the looks of things a good story.  Joss Whedon is a comic book nerd himself, and seems to be the prefect fit for this one.  After the Hunger Games this has got to be the next hottest thing this spring.

Dark Shadows (May 11) is Tim Burton’s latest, and this time it’s based on an old tv show from the 70’s.  Of course you realize that that means Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter must star, and joining them is Michelle Pfieffer and Eva Green.  The only thing that could be holding this one back is the fact that a trailer has yet to be released, and it comes out the week after the Avenger.  Maybe it would have been better suited to an August release.

Men In Black 3 (May 25) is the final entry in our list, and it’s only on here because it’s another curiosity.  The first one was amusing, the second one was terrible, and this one comes out ten years later.  Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones return, and this time it involves time travel.  It could be amusing, but Will Smith’s career has been in a down climb the last few years so it’s very doubtful.
