Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
Garner is the bride that was one of those McConaughey exes. Don't miss our interview with Matthew and Jennifer here!
Jackman does his thing better than anyone. Can you imagine other actors portraying Wolverine? I did not think so — this is the movie star Hugh Jackman that powered Australia and an otherwise placid 2009 Academy Awards to become must-see award show history.
Every hero needs its rival and in Wolverine, there could be none better than the Shakespearean-trained Liev Schreiber.Battle for Terra
A movie and television mastermind, JJ Abrams, settles on revisiting an iconic story from Gene Roddenberry and expectations go through the roof. Casting begins and the first word of brilliance is the hiring of the Heroes villain, Zachary Quinto, to portray Spock. Besides mirroring the look, Quinto's performance is beyond stellar.Tales of extraordinary heroes have been rebooted of late with great success including Batman and Superman.

After achieving global phenomenon status, Twilight's Pattinson dons a funny mustache to portray the eccentric and brilliant painter Salvador Dali.
The film could be Pattinson's effort to have audiences take him seriously outside of his vampire persona.
Edward and Bella are about as far from this tale as is possible. Little Ashes finds Dali struggling with the incoming fascist movement that is rattling Spain.
In the previews alone, we must be honest, Pattinson owns Dali.
Angels and Demons
Although many are saying Angels and Demons, as a film, is more of a sequel. Are you confused yet?
Here's the scoop: The church is busy repressing information to the world again, but this time, a few more stars have come along for the thrilling journey including Ewan McGregor. McGregor is simply one of the European union of acting talent that aids Hanks in his latest cinematic adventure.

The Brothers Bloom
Terminator Salvation takes a film franchise to another level.
The future of Terminator was always eluded to and shown in glimpses throughout the mythology.
But with Terminator Salvation, the entire action takes place after the world has essentially ended and before John Connor is John Connor.
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
This time out, Washington DC may be a locale change, but the spirit of the original film is purely intact. When it arrived a few Christmas' ago, Night at the Museum spent weeks atop the box office report and with the sequel pumping up the effects and the broadening historical storyline, the results should be the same: box office blockbuster.Dance Flick
After tackling the horror genre, epic movies and a slew of other mini-genres, the Wayans family zero in on the stereotypes that run rampant in the army of dance movies that has been permeating theaters.
Did we mention dance movies need to look out?Easy Virtue
Biel's character is triumphant in pulling a little air out of the family's stuffed British shirts that includes Colin Firth and Kristen Scott Thomas.
The view of early 20th century England during the summer blockbuster season is a fantastic alternative.
When a young boy stowaways on Asner's trip, classic Disney hilarity with message ensues.
