Summer 2011 is huge. I've said it once, and I will say it again. Because of the somewhat "overstuffed" nature of the season, it's rather natural for some films to be pushed out of the public eye. Not every wide release this year will make $200 million dollars. They could be huge movies, but they will eventually become the casualty of a crowded marketplace. It's sad, but true. So which films will rise up to the top of the mound and conquer the Summer Box Office? Here's our picks.
It's kind of shocking to see all the films being released this summer. There's going to be almost 50 wide release movies in the next four months alone! Superhero blockbusters, comedy mega giants, and animated behemoths await us during this busy movie season. Literally every week will see another blockbuster unleashed upon movie theaters. It seems like such a daunting task to sort through them all, doesn't it? But we here at TheMoviePool slogged through cinematic high waters to bring you the information you need. Posters, trailers, pictures, and more await as we give you the skinny on every high profile movie releasing this summer. Summer 2011 is going to be big...and we're going to kick it off in style. Without furthur ado, here's Part One of our massive four part guide to Summer 2011 At the Movies.
Mel Brooks. John Landis. Ivan Reitman. Harold Ramis. These are just some of our comedy directing legends. However, I think Judd Apatow more then qualifies to be part of them. He almost single handedly created the template for modern day comedy. Bridesmaids is the next big comedy from Apatow and, well he didn't direct it, his fingerprints are pretty apparent in just the trailer alone. But is this Apatow's next big movie, or just another Drillbit Taylor?
