Lucy

The Guardians of the Galaxy

The summer season may not be the best time of year for film, but it’s usually the most exciting. 2014′s blockbusting period starts this coming Friday with the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Unsurprisingly, that will be the first and last mention of the film on this list of our most anticipated summer movies. We polled the staff and tallied the votes to determine the ten summer movies we’re most excited about this year, and while some of the results are expected one or two surprises made (or missed) the list, too. Some of the films that came close to making the list but not close enough include the long-awaited adaptation The Giver, the animated sequel How to Train Your Dragon 2, Disney’s Maleficent and Seth MacFarlane’s Ted follow-up A Million Ways to Die in the West. A title that not a single one us picked as one of most anticipated? Transformers: Age of Extinction. I mean seriously… someone even picked Sin City 2 over Michael Bay’s latest. Keep reading to see the ten films that we’re most looking forward to this summer.

Lucy

Is “lower tummy” a precise medical term? I’m fairly certain it’s not. But then, I’m also fairly certain that a lower tummy full of super-drugs wouldn’t cause Scarlett Johansson to start using more than 10% of her brain, (mostly because the “we only use 10% of our brains” thing is just one of those urban brain myths). And even if it did, a faster brain probably wouldn’t give her the ability to stop time or magically switch from blonde to brunette. Ok, real talk is out of the way. Now for fun talk; as in, Lucy looks like a giant heap of it. Directed by Luc Besson, the film is more or less the exact same movie as Limitless, from a couple years back. Protagonist (Johansson vs. Bradley Cooper), is exposed to a miracle drug that unlocks the mythical 90% of our brains that’s just extra skull weight. Protagonist is soon on the run from various unsavory types, all of whom want to both destroy him/her and gain access to the sexy new designer drug that can make someone a polyglot genius kung-fu master.

What is Casting Couch? Today it’s mostly just an excuse to post a big picture of Scarlett Johansson. But it also has some news about Adam Sandler’s acting career that actually sounds promising. As if everyone didn’t love Scarlett Johansson enough, the sultry actress just had to go and kick things up a notch by kicking ass as the Black Widow in last year’s Avengers. Now anytime we see her being sexy without also doing a bunch of sweet-looking karate moves, it’s going to feel like a letdown. That shouldn’t be a problem for her next film though, as Heat Vision is reporting that Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita) has hired the lady to star in his next big action movie, Lucy, which is about a girl who acts as a drug mule for some sort of super serum getting dosed with what she’s carrying and turning into a super-smart, telekinetic, ass-kicking machine. This sounds like exactly the kind of movie the world needs right now.
