Here are the top 10 movies to see this summer. The films chosen for this list were limited to English language films.
1. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Whether you love it or hate it, the Twilight Saga is wildly popular and is attracting more fans to the series everyday. Eclipse is the 3rd film in the series, after New Moon.
2. Toy Story 3
This is a perfect movie for the kids to go see — Toy Story continues the classic tale of toys coming to life, with feelings and a whole world of their own.
Predators is horror meets sci-fi at its finest — if you’re looking to really get your horror fix, you can’t go wrong with a team of human warriors being brought to an alien planet as prey. While it’s definitely not for the squeamish, this will absolutely become a must see film this summer for all horror fans.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, and Ken Watanabe all star in this sci-fi adventure film that probes deeper into a subject that still leaves us perplexed: the mind. The PG-13 rating will ensure that teenagers can round up their friends and still look cool at a “serious” film.
5. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Action and intrigue in the sandy desert await you in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. It’s pure fantasy with plenty of action and adventure, and if you’re looking for high action fun, this is definitely a great pick for you.
Romantic comedy meets action in this sweet film about finding true love — and doing everything in the world to protect your soulmate. Katherine Heigl is the lead female star, and her successful romantic comedy portfolio is growing by the year — this one should be a success too.
7. Knight and Day
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz team up for a wild action-suspense film that has a touch of comedy. If you’re looking to get your action fix without getting into a serious drama, this is the movie you want to see this summer.
8. Avatar: The Last Airbender
Teenagers will like this action film for some of its themes — like a teenager being the last of his kind that has the power to save his homeland.
9. Dinner for Schmucks
This is another comedy film, but that’s okay — the more chances you have to laugh this summer, the better you’ll feel! Steve Carell definitely comes bringing the laughs, and Paul Rudd isn’t half bad either.
10. Sex and the City 2
Even if you’re not into this classic example of the “chick flick”, Sex and the City 2 will definitely open to plenty of excitement from hardcore fans. There are already parties set up to go see the movie, and if you liked the first film the second one should be perfect.
The movies are listed in order from 1 to 10, but that doesn’t mean that you have to follow that pattern to get started! The key is just to dive headfirst into the top 10 movies that you absolutely must see this summer — don’t forget the popcorn!
