No 6. Prometheus
Release date: June 8
Prometheus follows a team of explorers on a ship of the same name that discovers a clue to humankind’s origins, leading them on a path that ends with a battle to save the future of mankind.
Scriptwriter Damon Lindelof had this to say about the movie: “Over time, the movie began to become much more original. Although there might be some familiar things from the Alien universe, this movie has a mind of its own.”
No 5. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Release date: June 22
This is the perhaps the ultimate retelling of Abraham Lincoln’s life, obviously not realistically. This film is based on the novel of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith, which follows the secret identity of Abe as an axe-wielding hunter seeking revenge on the vampires who murdered members of his family.
Here is a trailer of the book, if it helps, as the trailer for the movie isn’t out yet.
No 4. The Amazing Spider-Man
Release date: July 3
So here is the official reboot of the Spider-Man series; a new cast and a new story run this movie that sees Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) develop spidey superpowers while, at the same time, trying to figure out his own mysterious past.
No 3. The Expendables 2
Release date: July 20
After watching the original, I definitely was left wanting for more of the jaw-dropping fights and explosions.
Some of the actors to appear in this movie are Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Van Damme and Norris – fetch that. The Expendables’ job for Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) goes wrong when an enemy (Jean-Claude Van Damme) kills one of their own. The team then sets out to destroy a deadly weapon and get revenge for their fallen brother.
