Man Of Steel Release Date: 4 Summer Blockbusters Definitely Worth Your $14
1: Iron Man 3 (May 3)
Iron Man is a super-hero and Box Office star that needs no introduction. This highly anticipated sequel, comes after the success of the Avengers and is poised to join the prestigious Billionaires Club. With the addition of Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley and Guy Pierce. The third installment was helmed by Lethal Weapon and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director Shane Black, and it promises to be amazing. Having already premiered in Australia, Iron Man 3 is receiving rave reviews from Down Under, sitting as a comfortable 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, and is about to open to astronomically huge numbers in the U.S. on May 3.
2: Star Trek Into Darkness (May 17)
KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN ... is still not confirmed to be the antagonist in Star Trek Into Darkness but every Trekkie knows what's up. Let's face it, lens glares and all, JJ Abrams' Star Trek was awesome, and there is absolutely no reason as to why Star Trek Into Darkness should be any less great. With all of the cast members of Star Trek back for another go (which includes the fantastic Simon Pegg) Star Trek Into Darkness, despite its godawful name, is guaranteed to be a hit.
3: Man of Steel (June 14)
It's hard to believe that a Superman movie could be greenlit following: Superman III, Superman IV, and Superman Returns, but Man of Steel looks that it might be able to breathe a little life into this struggling franchise. Which is for the best, because there has never been a more absolutely bananas movie then Superman III. Anyone that remembers any of Richard Pryor's scenes of that movie knows exactly what I am talking about. Man of Steel has, most likely, avoided the pitfalls of the notorious Superman III due to the talents of director Zach Snyder (300 and Watchman) and producer Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Prestige, and The Dark Knight Trilogy).
4: The Wolverine (July 26)
It's muthaf**kin Wolverine, badass extraordinaire. Hugh Jackman makes his fifth appearance in the role of Wolverine (not counting his cameo in X-Men: First Class) and it follows the classic 1982 comic series Wolverine. Wolverine revolved around Wolverine's experiences in Japan, and if the trailers are anything to base a film after, The Wolverine looks as though Uma Thurman in Kill Bill Vol.1 was replaced by sideburn-wearin, claw using, Wolverine. Just picture that in your head and proceed to throw money at your computer screen, nothing will happen but it'll feel amazing.
P.S. Brett Ratner, otherwise known as the idiot who screwed up X3: The Last Stand, was not allowed anywhere near this movie, a true sign of quality.
Bonus: World War Z (June 21)
Based on the popular novel by Max Brooks of the same name (yes, he is the son of Mel Brooks) World War Z is not your average run-of-the-mill zombie movie. Very few things about the movie are known yet, but what we do know is great: Brad Pitt will star in World War Z, it is directed by Marc Foster (who previously directed Quantum of Solace, Monster's Ball and Stranger Then Fiction) and the budget of this movie is massive. The rights to make World War Z were aquired by Paramount Pictures with a six-figure price tag following an intense six-way bidding war. The studio has a lot of confidence in this film, and I do too.
