Audiences love the summer because it’s the home of the blockbuster but, in terms of memorable films, the summer of 2010 was a major disappointment. Outside of Toy Story 3 and Inception, the rest of the top 10 films at the box office were a mixed bag of mediocre sequels and remakes. Thankfully, next summer will more than make up for it, at least in terms of blockbuster potential.

The summer of 2011 is absolutely loaded with massive, big budget films including huge sequels Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and The Hangover 2, new superhero films like Green Lantern, Thor and Captain America: The Last Avenger, kids fare such as Cars 2, Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom and Smurfs 3D and don’t forget Super 8, Rise of the Apes, X-Men: First Class and more.

Jon Favreau, director of one of the summer’s wildcards, Cowboys and Aliens, is potentially nervous about the box office back up and feels like many films are going to suffer surprising casualties. Hit the jump for more. Read More »

Personally, I never really thought the Smurfs comparison/knock of Avatar was all that clever or funny (even when done by the South Park guys). But Louise Mundo’s new Threadless tee “Little Warrior” is kind of funny, and a cool illustration. The t-shirt premiered today, and is selling out rather quick. Only $18 plus shipping, so act quick. See the full design after the jump.
