To Rome With Love

To Rome With Love

Opens June 22nd

Woody Allen is coming off a hot success with Midnight in Paris, and whether he’ll recapture that magic is still a question mark. With Alec BaldwinJesse EisenbergGreta GerwigEllen Page, and Penélope Cruz, it’s difficult to see how he couldn’t. With that cast and those locations, Allen would have to pull a lot of crap to make To Rome With Love one of his missteps. Still, the most exciting part of To Rome With Love is the fact we’re getting a double-dose of the Baldwin goods in a span of a month.

Beasts of the Southern Wild

Beasts of the Southern Wild

Opens June 27th

This was the film which made a huge splash at Sundance this year, and much of that praise was called for. Beasts of the Southern Wild is a real piece of beauty. It’s packed with images, scenes, and lines that’ll stay with you and make Terrence Malick wet himself in jealousy. Malick will go down as the film’s inevitable comparison, but Beasts of the Southern Wild is a much more accessible piece in the vein of Malick’s works.

Take This Waltz

Take This Waltz

Now on VOD and opens in theaters on June 29th

If Magnolia rightfully pimps this movie come awards season, expect to see a handful of nominations heading Michelle Williams‘s way. Sarah Polley‘s Take This Waltz is a lovely, charming and sad story. This is the type of relationship film which can effortlessly make you crack a smile in one scene, and then quietly break your heart a few scenes later.

Magic Mike

Magic Mike

Opens June 29th

No matter how generic-looking Magic Mike continues to come off, it will still bare the must-see status. We’re getting close to Steven Soderbergh‘s possible retirement, so even if Magic Mike is the worst of the romantic comedy crop — which is something the powers that be are selling it as — it couldn’t tarnish the film’s importance. Really, what could be more important than a movie starring I Am Number Four‘s Alex Pettyfer?

People Like Us

People Like Us

Opens June 29th

When you watch Orci & Kurtzman joints, “character” and “drama” are usually not what one would call those products’ strong points. Kurtzman knows pace and how to get characters from point A to point B for stuff to blowup nicely, but is he capable of doing the opposite with People Like Us? His character-centered directorial debut appears as a writer going outside of his comfort zone, or perhaps getting a chance to finally do what he’s always been best at.

Honorable Mentions: Nacho Vigalondo’s Extraterrestrial (have you seen Timecrimes?), Ted (have heard promising reactions about Seth MacFarlane’s feature film), and Rock of Ages (Shankman could easily repeat the success of Hairspray with this material)

What are you looking forward to the most?
