COMING SOON: Super Summer

It's summer and that means it's time for the blockbusters. This year seems particularly heavy on superhero movies, with no less than 4 major comic book adaptations coming our way. Add these to the big sequels like "Pirates of the Caribbean 4", "Transformers 3" and of course the grand finale to the "Harry Potter" series and we can expect massive box office this season. "Thor" has already been released, but I'll post the trailer anyway. Personally, I'm most excited for "X-Men: First Class".
