2013 Summer Movie Showdown 2 – Kryptonians, Monsters, and ZombiesJune 18th, 2013 at 12:38 pm by Marcus Jackson under The Movie Guru, Uncategorized
Hello Movie Lovers. Once again, I’m Marcus Jackson, the FOX 10 / CW 55 Resident Movie Guru here.
What can I say … the weekend of June 14th (Father’s Day Weekend) at the box office was … SUPER! Millions of fans and $125 Million in ticket sales flew Man of Steel to the top spot and also made it the Biggest June Movie Opening in Movie History (So Far). It was really different take on the origins of how this icon of a superhero came to be – a somewhat “darker” look at the path the man known as Clark Kent came to be called “Superman”.
In the movie Superman fights his fellow Kryptonian warrior, General Zod. Now this week at the box office Man of Steel will have to fight off Monsters (the animated ones) and Zombies (the really animated and undead ones). Two more big Summer Blockbusters are about to hit the Big Screen and this will make movie going a three-ring circus of choices. Depending on your mood or taste there will be something for everyone to go see.
For the kids and the kids at heart we have Monsters University. Disney & Pixar are at it again. This time we check in on our favorite monsters, Mike & Sulley, at the time when they met in college at Monsters University. This animated prequel to the Mega Hit movie Monsters, Inc. will have some competition in a few weeks during the July 4th weekend when Despicable Me 2 arrives in theaters July 3rd. To get you ready check out this trailer for Monsters University courtesy of IMDb …. http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi3128796953/
Now we come to the other extreme of movie choices this weekend. This movie has hyped up ever since last summer. We have Brad Pitt starting in the action horror event, World War Z. The critics are saying that this film could make Brad Pitt an “Action Star”. World War Z is about, what else, Zombies. They are in the midst of taking over the world unless the world of the living, led by Pitt, rises up and fight back.

These are you main three flicks in this “Battle Royale” this weekend but let’s not forget there are still some Really Good movies still out in theaters. The Purge, This Is The End, Fast and Furious 6, Epic, Star Trek: Into Darkness and Iron Man 3 are all still hanging tough. And … We’re not even halfway thru the Summer Movie Season just yet. Still got a lot more offering to come.
