Yup.... May is the traditional time to roll out the Hollywood Blockbusters, and crank up the Summer Movie Season into high gear. This year promises to be no different. And so all of the trailers have been rolling out to tease us into the spirit of the season.
Opening over Memorial Day Weekend is the flick for all those sci-fi and comic book fanatics - Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen in X-Men: The Last Stand. I'm not a fan of the series to begin with, and all I have to know about this is that one of the new mutants, Beast, is being played by Kelsey Grammer. Still and all, it's fine for summer fare.
This, of course, is all leading up to the MAJOR release, sharing the Memorial Day Weekend relase date with X-Men, on May 26, 2006.
Imagine, if you will, a darkened movie theatre. Dramatic, drum pounding and bass-laden music begins stirring as words begin flashing across the screen:
AT SUNDANCE IT RECEIVED THREE STANDING OVATIONS
IT WILL SHAKE YOU TO YOUR CORE
IF YOU LOVE YOUR PLANET... IF YOU LOVE YOUR CHILDREN... YOU HAVE TO GO SEE THIS FILM.
BY FAR THE MOST TERRIFYING FILM YOU WILL EVER SEE.
There's a crescendo in the music, followed by the most terrifying sound a summer film fan can possibly imagine... THE VOICE OF AL GORE LECTURING ON GLOBAL WARMING!!!
