The Summer 2011 season will officially begin in 11 days. Superhero films, reboots, remakes, sequels and even a few original big-budget films will be in theaters everywhere for the next four months. The indie and international market will continue their output through the blockbuster season. Some of these will be good, more of them will likely be bad and a few might even be great; this goes for both sides. Kicking off the summer season, there are a lot of anticipated films to choose from. Most notably, countless people’s most anticipated 2011 release finally comes out this month: Terrence Malick’s endlessly hyped The Tree of Life. Count me among those most excited. After seeing The Thin Red Line, his existentially broad and all encompassing film, May 27th cannot come soon enough. It looks to be even more broad and all encompassing and the question is; will it be as masterful as everyone already assumes it will be? I certainly hope so. Also, Thor has been getting quite the positive feedback from early screenings and premieres. I debated putting in Hobo with a Shotgun because everyone has already seen it through On Demand, but its official theatrical release occurs this month. Personally the films I am most anticipating this month are The Tree of Life, The Beaver, Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff, Louder than a Bomb, City of Life and Death and Kung Fu Panda 2. The question is: what are you most looking forward to? Results will be posted on May 1st.
