For you movie buffs, here is a list of some of the new movies coming out this summer.




The Story: It's a sports saga that begs to be a rags-to-riches-and-back movie: In the '70s, a tribe of Venice, Calif., surfers brought their radical moves out of the ocean, working them on the back of a different kind of board. Dubbed the Z-Boyz, these homies out of the tough 'hood of Dogtown created the extreme sport of skateboarding, using empty suburban swimming pools for their death-defying acrobatics. The phenomenon exploded, money was made, friendships failed -- but the legend of the Dogtown Z-Boyz never died.

The Skinny: Probably you remember "Dogtown and Z-Boys," that hot 2001 doc directed by Stacy Peralta? Well, David Fincher apparently felt a need to fictionalize the tale, and thought that Fred Durst would be just the fellow to direct "Lords"! When that so didn't happen, Catherine Hardwicke, of "Thirteen" fame, was tapped. Curious cast features Emile Hirsch, Heath Ledger, Rebecca De Mornay, America Ferrera and Johnny Knoxville, among many lesser-known names -- presumably the skateboarders?

'MR. AND MRS. SMITH' (June 10)

The Story: Out in a quiet little American suburb, an ordinary couple lives a safe, colorless existence. But, like so many suburban types in the movies, Mr. and Mrs. Smith aren't as boring as they initially seem. Unbeknownst to their neighbors or either spouse, they are legendary assassins, working for warring organizations. Inevitably, their secret comes out -- otherwise we wouldn't have a movie -- and a rollercoaster ride of stylish sex and suspense takes off.

The Skinny: It doesn't really matter that no one with functioning eyesight could possibly believe for a nanosecond that people who look like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie could be living undercover in a suburban cul-de-sac. "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" is all about star power, the heat audiences look for when leads reportedly kindle the kind of off-screen fire that can burn down a marriage. Yes, I think we can depend on the Smiths to be a little steamier than Kate Jackson and Bruce Boxleitner in the similarly plotted 1983 TV show "Scarecrow and Mrs. King."


The Story: Permanently scarred by the up-close-and-personal murder of his parents, young Bruce Wayne finds himself thwarted in his obsession to avenge their deaths, so he heads off to Asia, where even Gotham City Grasshoppers go to seek wisdom. After studying with ninja guru Ra's Al Ghul, Bruce (Christian Bale) returns to his bad-to-the-bone hometown, where he discovers his superhero identity and goes after grotesque baddies like Mafioso "The Roman" Falcone and "The Scarecrow."

The Skinny: Returning to the bleak origins of the Dark Knight, this fifth chapter in the "Batman" saga aims to hotwire the franchise into new, firing-on-all-cylinders power. Batter news yet, Joel ("Batman and Robin") Schumacher was dropped as director, with Christopher Nolan taking the helm after David Fincher and Clint Eastwood were considered. With his buff body and demonstrated grasp of bent psyches ("American Psycho," "The Machinist"), Christian Bale might make this dark superhero reach out and grab our imaginations again, but can Nolan, who directed the psychological puzzle-piece "Memento," drive big action scenes into redline territory? Top-notch cast includes Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Ken Watanabe, Tom Wilkinson and Rutger Hauer. The film will also be released in IMAX format.



The Story: You should have thought of that before you left home and four people on an interplanetary space flight run afoul of a perfect storm of cosmic rays and experience growth issues. That's the premise of the Stan Lee comic that almost single- (or eight-?) handedly jump-started the Marvel Comics empire. Inventor Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd) becomes Mr. Fantastic, rhymes with elastic; his sweetheart Sue Storm becomes the Invisible Woman (hardly what Jessica Alba fans want to hear), mistress of mighty force fields; her brother Johnny (Chris Evans) flames out as the Human Torch, while space cowboy Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis) bulges up as a cosmic rock creature who just wants to be called Thing. Now, they're out to foil the dastardly schemes of super-villain Dr. Doom (Julian McMahon).

The Skinny: Just what the world needs: another CGI-loaded superhero movie. But given its seminal place in pop-culture history, "The Fantastic Four" is sorta entitled to the computer magic, especially since the characters could never be visualized in a live-action movie without CGI. The cast was called back to the Vancouver, B.C., studios in April for reshoots. Although the TV-heavy casting has been interpreted as a sign that the filmmakers were banking on F/X rather than star power, the fact is that Gruffudd, Alba, Chiklis and McMahon are all as able as they are quirky.

'STEALTH' (July 29)

The Story: Is this a Don Rumsfeld plan or what? The Navy builds a fighter jet that won't risk human life because it's piloted by an artificial intelligence. Apparently, these are the only people in the world who've never heard of HAL or the Forbin Project. No matter, an elite cadre of pilots (Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel, Jamie Foxx, et al.) are dispatched to take out the drone before its nasty little computer mind sparks a nuclear war.

The Skinny: With Rob Cohen in the directorial cockpit, "Fast and Furious" thrills and spills should be the order of the day. Seems a strange follow-up to "Ray" and "Collateral" for Oscar-winner Foxx, especially when he's bracketed by action-movie expendables like Lucas and Biel -- but there's saving grace in having Joe Morton, Sam Shepard and Richard Roxburgh along for the ride.


'DOMINO' (August 19)

The Story: Laurence Harvey's sharp good looks and Continental charm made him a star in films like "The Manchurian Candidate," "Darling" and "Room at the Top." Who knew the thrice-married Harvey had spawned a feisty daughter with the unlikely name of Domino, once a Ford model, now a professional bounty hunter? This action-comedy traces the hows and whys of Domino Harvey's move from a quiet life in plush Beverly Hills to tracking crooks on the run.

The Skinny: Ridley Scott's younger and much less talented brother Tony steps in to direct this fast-paced biopic/thriller (penned by "Donnie Darko" creator Richard Kelly), with Keira Knightley playing the lead and a cast that just doesn't stop: Mena Suvari, Christopher Walken, Lucy Liu, Mickey Rourke, Macy Gray, Jacqueline Bisset, Dabney Coleman, Delroy Lindo. With that crowd, "Domino" won't be hard to look at. Scott, who once made TV commercials, will, as usual, disguise the empty places in his imagination with visual razzle-dazzle.

'FOUR BROTHERS' (August 12)

The Story: Of a salt-and-pepper quartet of adopted brothers (Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, Garrett Hedlund, Andre 3000), only one has stayed put in hometown Detroit, raising a family and helping out his mom (Fionnula Flanagan). When she's shot to death in a convenience store, the three out-of-towners return for her funeral. Doing some detective work, the reunited clan discovers their mother's death wasn't a random accident, but a planned hit -- and vow to avenge her.

The Skinny: John Singleton ("Boyz 'N the Hood" to "Shaft") directs an all-star cast of siblings, a clan of black and white bros. Terrence Dashon Howard, fresh from the Singleton-produced "Hustle and Flow," also stands out in this revenge drama, and Sofia Vergara ("Lords of Dogtown"), ranked as #56 in Stuff magazine's "102 Sexiest Women in the World," will provide, at the very least, gorgeous decor for this sure-to-be-powerful action-drama. ALSO OPENING THIS SUMMER

A London cocaine dealer wants to retire but must make one last score in the British hit "Layer Cake" (May); prankish teens start a serial-killer rumor that comes back to haunt them in "Cry Wolf" (August); Rachel McAdams is stuck next to a plane passenger who threatens to kill her father in "Red Eye" (August).




The Story: Four best friends (Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera and Blake Lively) are about to spend their first summer apart, the first step toward growing up for real. When one of the sisterhood picks up a pair of disreputable jeans in a thrift shop, the teens discover that, magically, the pants fit them all, though they are of decidedly different shapes and sizes. They decide to keep in touch during their summer of separation by passing around the jeans on a weekly basis -- along with the straight skinny on their adventures.

The Skinny: Adapted from a best-selling young-adult novel by Anne Brashares, "Sisterhood" has been tricked up for the screen by Delia Ephron, who co-penned the scripts for the eminently resistible "You've Got Mail" and the upcoming "Bewitched." The premise reeks of too-cute, but director Ken Kwapis brings serious youth-comedy cred from TV's "The Office," "Malcolm in the Middle," "Freaks and Geeks" and "The Larry Sanders Show."


The Story: A remake of the 1976 hit that spawned a franchise, "Bears" sinks its satirical teeth into the competitive world of Little League baseball. When a loser ex-coach (Billy Bob Thornton in the Walter Matthau role) is persuaded to take on a team of misfits and turn them into champions, his interest in the klutzy tykes registers zero, and the pint-size wiseguys read him like a bad paperback. Seems superfluous to say that kiddie charm works its wiles on the burn-out case: Before you know it, the team's headed for the top.

The Skinny: In his grizzled "Bad Santa" guise, Thornton might almost be mistaken for Matthau's lovechild. (Thankfully, "Santa" writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa penned "Bears.") Plus, Billy Bob recently had a substantial hit playing the beleaguered coach in "Friday Night Lights," another take on the dark side of sports competition. And director Richard Linklater hits home runs, whether it's the hilarious, frenetic "School of Rock" or the romantic indie "Before Sunset."

'BEWITCHED' (June 24)

The Story: The classic '60s sitcom featured a gorgeous witch named Samantha who tried to suppress her occult powers because they made her normal-human husband Darren nervous. A present-day actor (Will Ferrell) hoping to perk up his career thinks playing Darren in a big-screen revival would do the trick. What he doesn't know is that the actress (Nicole Kidman) hired to reprise the role of Samantha shares her character's exotic abilities.

The Skinny: It has to be said: Nora Ephron is a perfectly dreadful filmmaker. Witness "You've Got Mail," "Michael" or "Lucky Numbers." So we brace ourselves for big-time disappointment, even as we admit that bewitching is Kidman's middle name, Shirley MacLaine is inspired casting to follow in the maternal broomstick prints of Agnes Moorehead as Eudora, and dreaming up a warlock father for Michael Caine to play is an almost supernaturally great idea. But how to exorcise the demon of Ephron?


http://entimg.msn.com/i/summermovieguide/rebound2_130x50.jpg 'REBOUND' (July 1)

The Story: After blowing his stack in a very public meltdown, a famous college basketball coach (Martin Lawrence) finds himself demoted to junior high school, where he's saddled with a bunch of basketball losers. Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace"), she of the laughing-gas screech, reigns as school principal, while Patrick Warburton (eternally Puddy from "Seinfeld") blusters about bombastically as coach of the winning-est junior high basketball team.

The Skinny: Most everyone in this cast and crew counts TV credentials in his/her résumé. Maybe that's one reason this Martin Lawrence comedy vehicle smells so much like a sitcom -- "Welcome Back, Kotter" transplanted to the basketball court!

http://entimg.msn.com/i/summermovieguide/weddingcrashers_130x50.jpg 'WEDDING CRASHERS' (July 15)

The Story: By day they're divorce mediators, negotiating the spoils of marriages gone bad. Their weekends are devoted to capitalizing on the other end of the marital process, wheedling their way into wedding celebrations to pick off susceptible hotties getting a romantic contact high off the nuptial ceremony. Then one of them actually falls for his target of opportunity. Turns out she's the daughter of a slightly loony politician in the running for the presidency.

The Skinny: Did we mention that "they" are Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, and the presidential hopeful is Christopher Walken (in what universe!)? Rachel McAdams ("The Notebook," "Mean Girls") plays the pol's daughter, and just to maintain "Old School" ties with Vaughn, Will Ferrell joins the party as well. You gotta be there.

http://entimg.msn.com/i/summermovieguide/MustLoveDogs_130x50.jpg 'MUST LOVE DOGS' (July 29)

The Story: Freshly divorced Sarah Nolan (Diane Lane) is far from sure she wants to jump back into the dating pool. Her matchmaking sister (Elizabeth Perkins) won't give up, persuading Sarah to check out one more personal ad, this one headlined "Must Love Dogs." With a borrowed St. Bernard in tow, the lovely lady is soon juggling two too-good-to-be-true suitors (John Cusack and Dermot Mulroney).

The Skinny: Based on a novel by Claire Cook, "Must Love Dogs" could walk away with Best in Show in the romantic comedy category, given its charming premise and appealing cast: Lane ages like fine wine, and Stockard Channing is on board as a free-spirited cyberspace flirt. On the other paw, this sophomore film from veteran TV writer-producer Gary David Goldberg could be a dog.


http://entimg.msn.com/i/summermovieguide/dukesofhazzard_cast_130x50.jpg 'THE DUKES OF HAZZARD' (Aug. 5)

The Story: Plumb out of original ideas, Hollywood reaches back to that 1979 TV phenom about "two good ol' boys & fighting the system like two modern-day Robin Hoods." That would be the charming Duke cousins (Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville), white-trash outlaws who, in this movie update, aim to save the family farm from Boss Hogg (Burt Reynolds), Hazzard County's lowdown commissioner. Allies in the fight are babe-alicious cousin Daisy, she of the tattered denim cutoffs (Jessica Simpson), and moonshining Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson).

The Skinny: A guy with the last name Chandrasekhar would seem an odd choice to helm this Southern redneck fantasy -- but with directing credits from TV cult faves "Arrested Development" and "Andy Richter Controls the Universe," Jay C. would seem to be slumming. The cast is certainly right: Scott has racked up sufficient smart-aleck cred, Knoxville rules when it comes to down-home sleaze, and Simpson won't hurt anyone's eyes.

http://entimg.msn.com/i/summermovieguide/3001_130x50.jpg '3001' (Aug. 5)

The Story: What a great idea! Instead of letting top-drawer soldiers go to waste during peacetime, why not put them in hibernation until the next war? For that iffy trial run, recruit a couple of expendables: Pvt. Joe Bowers, the army's chief under-achiever (Luke Wilson), and Rita the prostitute (Maya Rudolph). The best-laid military plans always go awry, and when they do, the hibernation experiment gets so back-burnered, it's totally lost. Our duo of guinea pigs wakes up 10 centuries later, in a world so dumbed down they are world-class geniuses.

The Skinny: Laughs may be epidemic since "3001" is a Mike Judge project, and that means his eye for social satire (see "Beavis and Butthead," "King of the Hill," and his feature debut "Office Space") should infect this comedy in a most salutary way.


JUNE http://entimg.msn.com/i/SummerMovieGuide/cinderellaman_cast_130x50.jpg'CINDERELLA MAN' (June 3)

The Story: It's the depths of the Great Depression, and New York boxer James J. Braddock (Russell Crowe), a bit long in the tooth and never much of a champ, takes any work he can to support his wife (Renée Zellweger) and children. A fluke puts the once-promising lightweight back in the ring, where he proceeds to defeat a real contender. This starts an amazing string of popular victories that climaxes in a bout with Max Baer, heavyweight champion of the world and famous for having boxed two opponents to death.

The Skinny: For starters, "Cinderella" reunites Crowe, director Ron Howard and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, the trio who hit pay-dirt with "A Beautiful Mind." Paul Giamatti and Zellweger pile on extra acting clout. Then there's the feel-good vibe of a period story with elements of "Rocky" and "Seabiscuit": For Americans reeling from the stalled economy's body blows, the real Braddock stood tall as a symbol of improbable come-from-behind success. Bad-boy Crowe apparently channeled Mike Tyson to get into his role: bar-brawling with an old friend and bodyguard during the shoot, he sank his teeth into the poor guy's ear!

http://entimg.msn.com/i/SummerMovieGuide/heights_130x50.jpg'HEIGHTS' (June 10)

The Story: A rich slice of life -- actually five intertwined lives -- during 24 scintillating hours in Manhattan, set in the clubs, theaters, restaurants and streets where New York City folk jostle with very sharp elbows to make it on the biggest stage in the world. During one summer evening, a beautiful photographer opts for urban excitement over connubial bliss in the suburbs, while her mother (Glenn Close), diva of stage and screen, considers countering her husband's infidelity with a fling of her own. Facing their own crises are the photographer's fiancé, a writer who discovers his lover's problematic past, and an actor on the verge of success.

The Skinny: The Merchant Ivory team, producing here, is known for its keen eye for social milieux in which class and ambition weed out the bit players while raising comers to the heights. Look for wit, style and grown-up talk as the cast -- Close, James Marsden, Eric Bogosian, Isabella Rossellini, George Segal, Rufus Wainwright -- "act" their way through very theatrical lives in a burg driven by drama.


http://entimg.msn.com/i/SummerMovieGuide/murderball_130x50.jpg'MURDERBALL' (July 8)

The Story: Murderball is rugby for quadriplegics, and this movie is built around competition for the championship at the international Paralympics. Team USA had ruled for 11 straight competitions, only to have the title snatched away by a Canadian team -- coached by a Team USA veteran who'd been cut. "Murderball" gets inside the rage to win -- really, the rage to vie -- that animates the players and keeps them committed to the brutal, sometimes Rollerball-like competition. The film also taps into their frustration with off-the-court, non-disabled issues (such as one man's strained relationship with a son who isn't into athletics), and rather startlingly into their love lives as well.

The Skinny: Filmmakers Henry Alex Rubin and Dana Adam Shapiro film the action hot and weave the personal stories of several distinctly different players into a powerful drama about people as well as a most unorthodox sport. The crowd-pleaser won the 2005 Audience Documentary award at Sundance.

http://entimg.msn.com/i/SummerMovieGuide/HustleFlow_130x50.jpg'HUSTLE & FLOW' (July 15)

The Story: Djay (Terrence Howard), a dope-dealing pimp in Memphis, entertains dreams that his silver tongue and prodigious gift for monologue just might lift him out of his sordid circumstances. He decides he needs to get some of his rap performances on tape, with the help of an old buddy who's into recording church music and a goofy white kid who happens to own a beat machine.

The Skinny: Made on a shoestring, in 16mm, with financing from established director John Singleton (who knows something about boys from the 'hood), this ingratiating study in upward mobility was passionately embraced (and sold for a record profit) at Sundance 2005. It looks likely to make a star of Howard, long an invaluable supporting actor ("Ray," "Lackawanna Blues"). This time he's the one getting solid support, from Anthony Anderson, DJ Qualls, Isaac Hayes and Ludacris.

http://entimg.msn.com/i/SummerMovieGuide/brokenflowers_bmurray_130x50.jpg'BROKEN FLOWERS' (August 5)

The Story: Just as he's dumped by yet another girlfriend (Julie Delpy), Don Johnston (Bill Murray), a singleton by choice, receives a mysterious note, informing him that he's sired a son by one of his many former lovers and that the 19-year-old is searching for him. Don decides to turn detective, traveling cross-country to pop in on four of his one-time flames (Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Sharon Stone, Tilda Swinton).

The Skinny: Recalling Jack Nicholson's weirdly moving trip into past haunts and present realities in "About Schmidt," "Broken Flowers" -- steered by adamantly independent Jim Jarmusch -- can be expected to brim with smart, oddball humor and wisdom. Add a cast that packs talent to spare, with the ineffable Murray taking the lead, and Jarmusch may have his first mainstream hit.


http://entimg.msn.com/i/SummerMovieGuide/romance2_130x50.jpg'ROMANCE AND CIGARETTES' (August 19)

The Story: Ironworker Nick Murder (James Gandolfini) adores his wonderful wife (Susan Sarandon), but cheats on her with redheaded Tula (Kate Winslet), who arouses his wildest passions. When the two women decide one of them has to go, Nick confronts the kind of choice that will change everything ...

The Skinny: A simple story that actor/director John Turturro has ambitiously imagined as a big-screen musical in the pushing-the-envelope style of "Pennies from Heaven" and "The Singing Detective." In addition to the A-list leads, lip-synching cast members include the likes of Mary-Louise Parker, Eddie Izzard, Elaine Stritch, Christopher Walken, Steve Buscemi and Mandy Moore. Singing voices range -- wildly -- from Bruce Springsteen to Engelbert Humperdinck, Nick Cave to Tom Jones, Dusty Springfield to Connie Francis.

http://entimg.msn.com/i/SummerMovieGuide/asylum19_130x50.jpg'ASYLUM' (August 19)

The Story: The setting's a high-security mental hospital rather than a prison; Natasha Richardson's married to a shrink (Hugh Bonneville) instead of a warden; and she falls hard for a charming psycho (Marton Csokas), who's murdered and disfigured his wife, instead of an irresistible young outlaw -- but the premise recalls Gillian Armstrong's sexy and much-underrated "Mrs. Soffel." As in Armstrong's exploration of amour fou, "Asylum" pits grand passion against fidelity, family and the very fabric of the lovers' society.

The Skinny: "Asylum" is adapted from a novel by Patrick McGrath, who's turned a couple of other novels into dark little screenplays: David Cronenberg's "Spider" and "Gentlemen Don't Eat Poets." Not surprising to learn that McGrath grew up near Broadmoor Hospital, Britain's largest institution for the criminally insane, where his father was the medical superintendent.

I am looking forward to the following:

Lord of Dogtown - I saw the original and look forward to seeing the remake.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Batman Begins

Fantastic Four

Four Brothers

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants


Cinderella Man

Thanks for the post! I'm getting excited thinking about summer and everything it will bring. Including new movies! That gets me thinking, I wonder when Memoirs of a Geisha is coming out? I read somewhere it has wrapped recently. I've been waiting for this movie since I read the book in 1997! I was obsessed with it, even before Madonna was! LOL! Oh well, these movies look good too, I'll probably see The Bad News Bears, I know it will make me laugh. And Dukes of Hazzard (I have a morbid fascination with Jessica Simpson, otherwise no interest in the movie). I don't do action or chick flicks...I'm so picky it's insane.

My mom and sister have been telling me to read that book. I will have to tell them that it is coming out in a movie. According to Yahoo movies, it is coming out in December 2005.
I too have a sick fascination with Jessica Simpson. I love the Newlyweds.

War of the Worlds looks amazing too!


The Story: This is this latest adaptation of H.G. Wells' classic novel about Mars invading Earth. You might say that Steven Spielberg takes us back in spirit to where Orson Welles began in his 1938 radio version to focus the interplanetary combat through the awareness and experiences of a single American family ... headed, as most American families are, by Tom Cruise.

The Skinny: Can the director who made UFOs family friendly in "Close Encounters" and "E.T." bring himself to show extraterrestrials for the slimy, vicious, globally sociopathic entities they have to be to honor H.G. Wells' vision? Let us pray. But rest assured that all stops will be pulled by a master stop-puller: It's the most expensive film he's ever made.

I saw "Unleashed" this weekend (that new Jet Li movie) it wasn't typical Jet Li, but it was still good nonetheless.

To distract her mother from her latest bad choice, Holly conceives the perfect plan for the perfect man--an imaginary secret admirer who will romance Jean and boost her shaky self-esteem. When the virtual relationship takes off, Holly finds herself having to produce the suitor, borrowing her friend's charming and handsome Uncle Ben (Chris Noth) as the face behind the e-mails, notes and gifts. Holly must resort to increasingly desperate measures to keep the ruse alive and protect her mom's newfound happiness, almost missing the real perfect man when he does come along.
