eyewatch: MoviEs 4 SummEr

It seems like all the studios jumped on the remake/sequel bandwagon this season with an exceptional catalog of films that have been resurfaced for our pleasure. Here’s a list of the summer line-up:

1)“Iron Man 2”-May 7th-Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson
I just love a man made of steel…well not really. When his newfound fame as a hero goes to his head, a few villains are introduced to keep him busy, including Whiplash and Justin Hammer. He also receives help from his new partner, Rhodes/War Machine.

2) “Robin Hood”-May 14th-Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, William Hurt, Mark Strong, Danny Huston
He always did rob from the poor to give to the rich. Robin Longstride, Will Scarlett, Alan-a-Dale and Little John, return to England following the deaths of King Richard and Robert of Locksley. Robin promises Robert he will return his sword to his father in Nottingham. To do this, he impersonates Robert and in the midst, falls for Lady Marian. He then leads a gang against Robert’s ambusher, Godfrey, a member of the upper class, to keep him from taking over the kingdom.

3) “Shrek 4”-May 21st-Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, Antonio Banderas, Julie Andrews
I guess we’re not over this ogre. In this installment, Shrek signs a contract with famed fairy tale character Rumpelstiltskin in order to regain his old ogre habits. When the deal goes terribly wrong, he experiences what life would be like if he never existed.

4) “Sex and the City 2”-May 28th-Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Chris Noth
Umm…does this make you feel like your missing EVERYTHING in your wardrobe?! The women are back and this time they are headed to Abu Dhabi after Samantha uses her PR skills to give she and her friends the all-expense paid trip. This is a relief to Carrie, who wants to take some time away from her man Mr. Big, Miranda, who has to deal with a chauvinist boss, and Charlotte, who must deal with her 2-year old daughter. Shoes and handbags are an understatement for this foursome.

5) “Prince of Persia”-May 28th-Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, Alfred Molina
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could play the game the same time the movie plays on the big screen? An adventurous prince joins rival princess, Tamina to stop an irate ruler from destroying the world with a mystical dagger that unleashes a sandstorm.

6)“The Karate Kid”-June 11th-Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan, Taraji P. Henson

If you’re a 80s’ baby, you might have high expectations for this remake. Not a problem!In this film, a young boy and his mother move to China after her job transfers her to the new location. To combat his bullies, he seeks help from the maintenance man to prepare for a popular Kung-Fu tournament.

Other remakes/sequels coming up include "The A-Team", “Jonah Hex”, Toy Story 3”, the “Twighlight Saga: Eclipse”, “The Last Airbender”, and “Meet the Parents 3”. Hope your EYES are ready for them, and that your popcorn is ready! It is going to be one long summer of follow-ups. For more info, check out http://www.imdb.com/.
