Transforms 2: Revenge of the Fallen (Opens June 24th)
Anyone who watched the Super Bowl saw the 30 second clip of how awesome this film looks. More robot fights, and the biggest robot we will see in Transformers yet is named Devastator. Bigger fighting robots? It must be better than the first one. Not to mention Megan Fox who is bad at acting but looks amazing while doing it. I won’t forget you ladies, Shia LaBeouf is back too.

Public Enemies (Opens July 1st)
The cast alone should make any movie fan want to see this one. The film features the likes of Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Billy Crudup, and Giovanni Ribisi. Public Enemies is based on the life of John Dillinger. For those of you who don’t know, John Dillinger was one of America’s most notorious bank robbers in 1930’s. This film has the potential to be great.

Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince (Opens July 17th)
Many of us Potter fans have been waiting an extended amount of time to see the newest installment in the series. It was supposed to come out November 21, 2008, but was pushed back 8 months because evil Warner Brothers wanted to make The Dark Knight box office money. Greedy sons of…well anyway. The trailers for the film look spectacular. This film should be the darkest Potter yet, especially for us that know the end.

Funny People (July 31st)
Many of you know director Judd Apatow as the director of Knocked Up and 40 Year Old Virgin. This will be his third film, and looks just as hilarious as his previous work. Adam Sandler plays a dying comedian that decides to show an amateur comedian the ropes. Turns out Sandler is treated and cured of his ailment, and has a new positive look on life. It should prove to be very funny given the title, and Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill in the cast.

Inglorious Basterds
(August 21st)
This film is about a group of American soldiers dropped into Nazi occupied Europe in WWII. Their mission: Seek out and kill as many Nazis possible. Brad Pitt is the lead character, and is rarely in a bad film. This film should prove to be very violent being directed by Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill). Who doesn’t want to see Nazis killed? Answer: no one.

Of course this list is heavy on guy oriented films, but the summer is not short of films for females. The warm season brings chick flicks like The Proposal, The Ugly Truth, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, and (500) Days of Summer. Guys and girls alike have a promising summer of films to keep us entertained when the humidity is through the roof and the only desirable activity is to sit around in air conditioning.
