Never fear, fanboys/girls will save the world (economy), one blockbuster at a time

May the force be with you as you use your hard-earned allowance on movie tickets and popcorn

May the force be with you as you use your hard-earned allowance on movie tickets and popcorn

What is that I hear?  Spaceships and gigantic talking robots? Lasers and things blowing up? Ah, the sounds of summer movie season=the end of the recession? 

Obama may have put together an elaborate plan to break us out of this economic crisis, but Hollywood has been busy in back rooms and underground lairs working on their own stimulus package…and my friends, here it is:

May 1 – X-Men Origins: Wolverine (starring Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds and Liev Schreiber, directed by Gavin Hood).

May 8 – Star Trek (Directed by JJ Abrams**, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg and like a thousand other people, holy crap, that list is long!).

May 21 – Terminator Salvation (starring Christian “get out of my sight” Bale, Bryce Dallas Howard and Helena Bonham Carter, directed by McG**)

June 24 – Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Directed by Michael Bay**, starring Shia LeBeouf, Megan Fox, and a lot of the kids from the first movie)

July 17 – Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince (starring all the same old Brits, directed by David Yates)

August 7 – G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra (starring Channing Tatum, Dennis Quaid and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, directed by Stephen Sommers**)

 

**Member of Hollywood’s Special Forces Economy-Resurrection Unit, a collective of  blockbuster directors who live to make geeky/tech-y/built-in fanbase movies that premiere during the summer and will include fast-food, soda, and toy/action figure marketing promotions.

    Megan Fox said,

    I’m looking forward to Jennifer’s Body. Megan had no real meaty scenes in How to lose friends and alienate people. And in Transformers she was pretty much mute.

    Shes also up for the role of Leila in Jonah Hex with Josh Brolin.
    She would be a perfect Wonder Woman thought! :-)
