"The Great Gatsby"
In Theaters: May 10
All the hard-sell – the Leo star power, the sets, the costumes, the soundtrack supervised by Jay-Z – can't disguise the fact that Baz Luhrmann's take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's great American novel appears to choking on its own excess.
In Theaters: June 28
Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton hang out in a rundown British seaside resort. Here's the twist: They're vampires. No. No. No. I've had enough of the bloodsucking.
"Grown Ups 2"
In Theaters: July 12
Since the first "Grown Ups" in 2010 was family comedy at its most fatuous and fun-free, how in hell can Adam Sandler pull off a miracle with a sequel?
"300: Rise of an Empire"
In Theaters: August 2
Didn't everyone die in the first "300" in 2007? Don't be nitpicky. It's a Hollywood commandment that if it's a hit, it can be replicated. So now we have another battle taking place in the same year. Next we can do "300: The Hangover."
"We're the Millers"
In Theaters: August 9
In this tarted-up road trip movie, Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis play mom and dad. Except she's a stripper helping him smuggle weed across the Mexican border. Their kids are fake, and I'm getting depressed just thinking about this.
yeah...don't bother to "save me the isle seat"!
