But now what? What will the summer bring? A host of superheroes, ("Dark Knight Returns" "The Hulk" and Will Smith's "Hancock,") more stoners ("Pineapple Express") and a return to teenhood ("American Teen.")
My question is, where is the excitement? What are movies that people are jazzed about? "Prince Caspian?" Not a blip
The one movie people seem to be excited about? "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Now it's been like a quarter century since "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and perhaps that's what's bringing out the fans. Can Harrison Fold pull it off again? Can Steven Spielberg? There is a very strong cast, what with Cate Blanchett, Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Jim Broadbent, Shia LaBeouf, and to the delight of us sentamentalists Karen Allen too.
So what are you excited to see this summer?
I predict a major comeback for M. Night Shyamalan!
Yes, the trailers for that have been quite eye-catching, although everytime I hear the name I hear the Supremes launch into the song with the same name, and I think of Faye Dunaway in what I believe was her first film.
