Ok, everyone, here we go! The second half of the Summer slate for 2013! There’s plenty of big movies in store, and of course, a handful of DOAs.
Click through to check out the second half of this Summer!
This weekend’s big premiere on HBO was last year’s “Mr Popper’s Penguins”.
Loosely based on a children’s book from 1938, “Mr Popper’s Penguins” stars Jim Carrey as a workaholic, divorced father of two who suddenly inherits a small colony of penguins when his long estranged father passes away. Having a batch of penguins around is an inconvenient challenge, and the birds interfere both with his work and his living situation.
But the one thing they do for him is they begin to reconnect him with his family.
Aimed squarely at families, “Popper’s” isn’t a complex film by any means. Neither is it Jim Carrey’s finest hour. But taken for what it is, it’s not the worst movie ever, either.
Heh heh heh. WOW! Whoooooo hooo!!
Summer blockbuster entertainment at its absolute finest. A roller coaster ride of action, comedy and great characters. A total blast.
As promised, below are the embedded videos from last night’s panel for Marvel Studio’s “The Avengers”, one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2012.
In attendance was, Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Chris Evans (Captain America), Coby Smulders (Maria Hill), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson) and Kevin Feige, the Head of Marvel Studios.
They led with the newly released trailer for the movie, then introduced the cast (including Mark Ruffalo, who was previously unannounced), and then showed an entire scene, followed by a new trailer-esque montage of unseen footage, before returning to field questions from the audience.

Back from my day at New York Comic-Con. Got up yesterday at 5:00 am, got home at a little after 1:00 am. I used my own car, two trains, a cab and a bus to get there and back. We waited in line for about three hours out of the day, sat through numerous panels we didn’t care anything about, but at the end of the day, I got to get Stan Lee’s autograph, I saw unseen footage from the upcoming “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”, presented by directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, got to see an awesome scene from season two of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” presented by the cast, and got to see an entire scene from next year’s “The Avengers”, a full 6 months before it gets released.
