EW Summer Movie Preview 2013
Man of Steel: what can I say? How can I get excited by a Superman movie? Please stop (a.) with superhero movies and (b.) the same old, same old. I feel the same way unfortunately about Wolverine. I like the X-Men, but there have been countless movies at this point.
Among the ones that I fear could be bad, but hope they are at least popcorn-fun: After Earth, The Lone Ranger, White House Down, and World War Z.
Curious about Only God Forgives due to Drive-director/actor reuniting.
Pacific Rim and Elysium are interesting to me in the same way: two directors who pulled off pretty cool past films on small budgets, now have a big budget to play with. Hopefully they don't screw it up.
Here are the top six films I'm most looking forward to seeing, in release order:
Iron Man 3 (5/3)
Star Trek: Into Darkness (5/17)
Before Midnight (5/24)
The Hangover: Part III (5/24)
Despicable Me 2 (7/26)
