CFC Summer Movie Preview

It's that time of year again. Where moviegoers across the nation flock to the theater to escape the heat, summer boredom, and their annoying house guests. Unlike late December and early January where we are inundated with gloomy independent films or sweeping epics as Oscar bait, summer movies have one goal: make the big bucks. Therefore providing us with with some killer trailers (Amanda Woods style) and some highly entertaining movies. And that's what we're all about here at Chick Flick Chic. So here's a rundown of what to expect this summer, categorized by my immediate reaction when I saw the trailer.

"OMFG this is my new favorite movie!" (otherwise known as MTAD)

Rock of Ages- June 15
As I told you in January, this will probably be the greatest movie I've ever seen in my life.

Magic Mike- June 29
Men have been treated to movies about female strippers for far too long. It's our turn.

Snow White and the Huntsman- June 1
How creepy and gorgeous is Charlize?

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World- June 22
I get a Garden State meets Armageddon vibe from this. And that's a good thing.

The Dark Knight Rises- July 20
I am SO FREAKING EXCITED. I think I might go at midnight. Yes, I am aware this is a superhero movie. But . . . Christian Bale.

"Eh, I'll probably see this if there's nothing else out in theaters that week."

What to Expect When You're Expecting- May 18
I love a good ensemble rom-com but I feel like we've exhausted ourselves with the "child birth is gross but heart-warming" movies.

Men In Black III- May 25
Was this necessary? Maybe.

That's My Boy - June 15
The only thing that looks amazing about this is Leighton Meester's wardrobe. And I will see it for this reason alone.

Ted- July 13
I feel like this could be funny in a "I got extra points with my boyfriend for going to see this and actually laughing" kind of way.

"Dear God, you couldn't pay me to go see this movie."

Battleship- May 18
I love how the trailer says "from the Hasbro company that brought you Transformers." Everyone realizes that Hasbro is a toy company right? Absurd.

Prometheus- June 8
No. Just no.

Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter- June 22
Please no more Vampires, whether they protect Bella or the Union. I'm over it.

What summer movies have you all excited?

  1. ...all of the ones you plan to pass on?
    PLUS the Dark Knight Rises (obvi).
    And I feel entirely the opposite about Rock of Ages, haha!
