Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2015

April isn’t even 48 hours old but at the movie theater, summer has already begun. With tonight’s opening of Furious 7, the trend of major blockbusters opening well before the first weekend in May continues. Fast Five, The Hunger Games and Captain America: The Winter Soldier are a few recent examples; next year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will open over a month before the traditional first weekend of summer. Let’s face it. It might be Spring outside, but it’s Summer at the movies.

With that in mind, the /Film crew decided to rank our most anticipated films of the season. Everyone on staff (Peter, Russ, Angie, David, Devindra, Angie, Chris, and myself) ranked their 20 most anticipated movies of summer 2015, those rankings were given point values, and then an overall list was created.

Below, read /Film’s most anticipated movies of Summer 2015. Read More »

Magic Mike

Steven Soderbergh‘s Magic Mike was a thoughtful examination of the American Dream, but it was also a glorious celebration of glistening manflesh. While it remains to be seen if the Gregory Jacobs-directed sequel will be the former, the first teaser poster confirms it will definitely be the latter.

The Tatum-tastic poster is just the first stop on the promotional campaign for the Warner Bros. sequel, with the very first first trailer set to hit this week. Check out the Magic Mike XXL poster and get details on the Magic Mike XXL trailer release after the jump.  Read More »

Magic Mike

As Magic Mike XXL enters principal photography, Warner Bros. is baring a bit more information about the upcoming sequel. Among the latest stars to be announced are Donald Glover, Elizabeth Banks, and Michael Strahan, though it’s equally interesting to note who isn’t coming back. We already knew Matthew McConaughey was a no-go, but it seems Alex Pettyfer may sit this one out as well.

In addition, the studio has finally revealed the official synopsis for the film which explains exactly why the boys are hitting the road. And star Channing Tatum has dished up a tantalizing image from the first day of shooting. Get the Magic Mike XXL synopsis, casting announcements, and photo after the jump.
