Summer Movies!!!

By Rebecca Kollmann, Contributing Writer

Now that spring weekend is behind us, the next exciting thing to look forward to is all the summer movies once we go home and fear eternal boredom until we return to UNH!  So in the meantime, here are the upcoming summer movies to carry us over until then.

Eclipse: (Twilight saga) Most of you Twilight junkies know the back story to the series, but in this next movie installment of the books, Bella must decide between Jacob and Edward.

Iron Man 2: This is the typical American superhero film based on the Marvel comics. It’s the sequel to 2008’s Iron Man and the second film in a planned trilogy. Directed by Jon Favreau, the movie revolves around Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), who has revealed his identity as Iron Man and resists calls by the U.S. government to hand over the technology.

Letters to Juliet:  For those looking for a good old love story, look no further. This is a tale of encountering new flings and rekindling old flames.  When Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), an American adolescent, travels to Verona, Italy (where Romeo first met Juliet) she meets a group of people who respond to letters written to Juliet seeking love advice.  Sophie responds to a letter that has been lost for over 50 years, and is stunned when its author comes to Italy with her handsome but overprotective grandson (Christopher Egan) to find the fiancé she left decades before. Intrigued by Claire’s pursuit, Sophie joins them on an adventure through the beautiful hills of Tuscany searching for Claire’s long lost Lorenzo. The journey will change their lives forever, and they discover that true love does exist.

Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D: In a world devastated by a viral infection, converting its victims into the Undead, Alice (Milla Jovovich), pursues her journey to find survivors and rescue them. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some surprising help from an old companion. A new guide joins them that promises a safe haven from the Undead directs them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is infested by thousands of Undead. Alice and her comrades encounter a deadly trap in this thrilling potential blockbuster.

Toy Story 3: For those of you that are still kids at heart, check out this 3rd installment of the childhood favorite of many. Andy is now headed off to college, and his toys, including favorites Woody and Buzz Lightyear, are being sent to storage. Before his toys can be moved to the attic, they are unintentionally thrown away and are taken away by the garbage men.

The toys end up at a local day-care center where they must try to survive preschool children.

The A-Team: This summer movie tells the tale of the electrifying and daring misuse of Hannibal Smith and his vivid team of former Special Forces soldiers who were blamed for a crime they didn’t commit. By going “rogue” they use their unique abilities (and eccentricities) to attempt to clear their names and find the true perpetrator.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice: Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan protecting the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina). Balthazar can’t do it single-handedly, so he utilizes Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel), a seemingly ordinary guy who exhibits hidden potential, as his unwilling protégé. The sorcerer gives his reluctant accomplice a heads up in the art and science of magic. Together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. It’ll take all the audacity Dave can muster to survive training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
