We are firmly in Summer Blockbuster season and the big movies continue this month, although there is a gaping hole left by GI Joe: Retaliation. Prometheus is probably the most exciting release of the month but there’s also Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Brave as well. Check out everything that’s coming out below.
- Snow White and the Huntsman: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron star in the second Snow White re-imagining of the year, although this one looks way more action packed and interesting than Mirror, Mirror.
- Prometheus: A prequel set in the Alien universe, the crew of the spaceship Prometheus set out to explore a planet that is discovered in various prehistoric markings around the Earth but their discovery could end mankind. The movie has an all star cast including Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, Michael Fassbender and Idris Elba and directed by original Alien director, Ridley Scott.
- Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted: The animal crew of Madagascar heads to Europe to find the troublesome Penguins and most go on the run from a ruthless animal control officer. The gang hides out in a circus train to avoid capture.
- Rock of Ages: Based on the Broadway musical and featuring music from such rock bands as Journey, Foreigner and Def Leppard, Rock of Ages features Tom Cruise as rock legend Stacie Jaxx, who might be the only hope to save a popular rock club from a group of religous mothers who want the club closed.
