June 3 X-Men: First Class (nationwide) The much anticipated prequel to the blockbuster franchise, “X-Men: First Class” is set in 1962 and focuses on the relationship between Professor X and Magneto, along with the origins of the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants. The studio has high hopes for the picture, with their eyes set on the beginning of a new trilogy. Incendies (Cedar Lee) When notary Lebel (Rémy Girard) sits down with Jeanne and Simon Marwan (Mélissa Désormeaux Poulin, Maxim Gaudette) to read them their mother Nawal’s will (Lubna Azabal), the twins are stunned to receive a pair of envelopes — one for the father they thought was dead and another for a brother they didn’t know existed. Nominated for Best Foreign Film at this year’s Academy Awards, “Incendies” is not to be missed. June 10 Super 8 (nationwide) For the longest time the plot for this highly buzzed-about film was kept under wraps in an attempt to build hype for the picture. All we know is that it’s directed by famed filmmaker J.J. Abrams (“Lost,” “Mission Impossible 3,” “Star Trek”) and contains a storyline involving unusual disappearances and inexplicable events in a small town in Ohio. Color us intrigued! Judy Moody & The Not Bummer Summer (nationwide) Based on the best-selling book series aimed at tweens, the film follows third-grader Judy Moody who sets out to have the most thrilling summer of her life. Sure to be a summer sleeper for the Justin Bieber crowd. Tree of Life (Cedar Lee) Sure to be one of the best films of 2011, “Tree of Life” is the latest from critically acclaimed director Terrence Malick and stars powerhouses Brad Pitt and Sean Penn along with newcomer Jessica Chastain. As with “Super 8,” the plot leaks have been minimal, though the film has been described as the tale of a Texas boy’s journey from the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as a “lost soul in the modern world,” and his quest to regain meaning in life. Midnight in Paris (Cedar Lee) The new film from Woody Allen looks to be a return to form after two less-than-exceptional pictures the past two years. The romantic comedy follows a family traveling to the French capital for business. Early reviews have thankfully penned this one as one of Allen’s better films. Naturally, “Midnight in Paris” has a star-studded cast, including Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates and Adrien Brody. June 17 Green Lantern (nationwide) Hopefully you’re not all superheroed out by now, because yet another one is on the way in the form of Green Lantern. Ryan Reynolds stars as a pilot that, under strange circumstances, is granted a mystical green ring that gives him unimaginable powers that he must use to keep the universe at peace. In both 3D and the more preferred 2D for more comfort to your eyes. Mr. Popper’s Penguins (nationwide) Jim Carrey stars as Mr. Popper in a film based on the famous children’s book of the same name. Carrey plays of a businessman who inherits six penguins; in return his world is turned upside down. Should be a film for the whole family to enjoy and a welcome return from an actor that has been keeping quiet as of late. L’Amour Fou (Cedar Lee) A moving documentary on the relationship between fashion designer Yves Saint-Laurent and his lover, Pierre Berge, who together decide to auction off a lifetime of precious art and objects. The doc took home the Prize of the International Critics for Special Presentations at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. June 24 Bad Teacher (nationwide) We’ve already expressed our opinions on this much-buzzed foulmouth comedy, which looks to be a female-driven laughfest and a refreshing one at that. The film follows a junior-high teacher (Cameron Diaz) who, after being dumped, attempts to gain the attention of a new colleague (Justin Timberlake) who’s also being wooed by a rival teacher. Here’s hoping the film is just as hilarious at the trailer. Cars 2 (nationwide) This year’s Pixar release is the sequel to one of the biggest hits of the company’s much-lauded existence. “Cars 2” sends Lightning McQueen and Mater overseas in an international adventure that pits them against the world’s fastest cars. Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy are back to voice their characters in the film, set for release in both 3D and 2D. Those underwhelmed by the first film can give the series another chance. July 1 Larry Crowne (nationwide) The stars align for this new dramedy, which unites box-office powerhouses Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in a romantic comedy that’s bound to sell a few movie tickets. After being laid off from his cush job, the middle-aged and getting-desperate Larry Crowne (Hanks) decides to head to college to start anew and in the process, falls for his teacher (Roberts). The film was co-written and directed by Hanks and is only his second time behind the camera since 1996’s “That Thing You Do.” Monte Carlo (nationwide) Selena Gomez, Katie Cassidy and Leighton Meester star as three friends posing as wealthy socialites in Monaco with often disastrous results. Based on the novel “Headhunters” by Jules Bass, the filmmakers decided to change the middle-aged woman to teenagers in hopes of box-office gold. Transformers: Dark of the Moon (nationwide) Most of the cast of this blockbuster series is back in a story in which the Autobots discover a spacecraft hidden on the Moon and must race against the evil Decepticons to reach in time before all hell breaks loose. The biggest news during production was that Megan Fox’s character was dropped from the film and would be replaced by English model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Expect a big box-office return in its first week with dwindling numbers shortly thereafter. Buck (Cedar Lee) A hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, “Buck” is a critically acclaimed documentary that centers on Buck Brannaman, a living legend in the equestrian world and the inspiration for the best-selling novel and film “The Horse Whisperer.” Buck was known as a man who possessed near-magical abilities as he taught not only horses but human beings understanding and respect.
