All of the animals can talk, but they never do it when humans are around. But when one particularly hapless zookeeper is striking out with the woman he loves, all the zoo animals decide to get together and get him laid. I mean, help him find love. That is what I meant. The only real question is: Can it live up to the first part, and prove a fitting end to the eight-movie epic series in which a young wizard finds himself by facing the monster who killed his parents?
Can Chris Evans win everyone over as the truest, bluest American hero, who undergoes an experimental procedure to become the perfect human? So far, the trailers look fun — if a bit oversaturated with Easter eggs referencing every other World War II Marvel hero. Another Earth July 22 This movie, about a young astrophysicist whose life is affected by the discovery of a duplicate Earth in our solar system, was possibly the most acclaimed movie at Sundance. The Hollywood Reporter described it as "science fiction at its best.
Director Jon Favreau and producer Steven Spielberg, along with writer Orci and Kurtzman, worked really hard to pay homage to the Western genre — before adding alien invaders who attack a small town in the Wild West. Probably worth it just for the crackling tension between Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig. He's really the only reason to think this movie will be anything other than a smurftastrophe.
After all, he made Beastly surprisingly not forehead-stabby. It's supposedly just about a couple who are going to adopt a kitten in a month, and are thus facing their last month without responsibility. But all the early reviews stress that this film goes pretty far into magical realism and superheroics, among other things. Expect quirky weirdness with hints of the other-worldly mixed in.

Summer Of Night by Simmons, Dan
Reynolds is — wait for it — an overgrown man-child who has never taken responsibility for anything. They both envy each other, and wish they could switch places. Until one night Mostly this gives Bateman in Reynolds' body the opportunity to mack on Olivia Wilde. So the cast is pretty great, anyway.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes August 5 We've finally gotten our first glimpse of this film, in which a scientist James Franco is trying to cure Alzheimer's disease — but instead, he winds up turning one of his laboratory animals, a chimp named Caesar, super-intelligent. And soon Caesar is plotting an escape The scenes of apes on the rampage look fun, and it's a good sign that the studio moved this one back from the fall to the summer on the strength of the footage they were seeing.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark August 12 This remake of the classic TV movie, produced and co-written by Guillermo Del Toro, got a lot of buzz at Comic Con last summer — but we haven't heard much about it since then. Here's hoping it lives up to the Del Toro pedigree and the early buzz. It's about a young girl who moves into a new house with her father and his girlfriend — but some weird creatures are in the house too, and they come out at night.
The first trailer was, admittedly, a bit underwhelming. But we're still hopeful for some good clean barbaric fun, with the lamentation and all that. Fright Night August 19 Colin Farrell is a menacing vampire, in this remake of the s classic, and his next door neighbor Anton Yelchin, aka Chekov from Star Trek begins to suspect the truth. But the main reason to see this film, almost certainly, will be David Tennant, the Tenth Doctor, as cheesy Vegas magician Peter Vincent, who dispenses razmatazz and vampire wisdom.
For one thing, a ridiculously scifi plot, in which a villain known as the Timekeeper Jeremy Piven wants to stop time for some unknown reason. Sort of makes other villains' penny-ante schemes fall into proportion. Final Destination 5 August 26 Otherwise known as 5nal Destination. This time, it's that flying kid from Heroes and The Walking Dead 's Emma Bell who survive a disaster, only to learn that death has a really long attention span.
