You know Spider-Man, Pirates, and Shrek. Bourne Identity, Fantastic Four, and Harry Potter. But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all… er… I mean. There are a lot of big movies coming out this Summer, and while the movies above are getting all the buzz, there more movies that won’t be breaking any box office records, probably won’t ever rank number one, and possibly may never see any auditorium bigger than that really small smelly one at a single multiplex in a major city.
Here are my to five picks of these neglected films:
5) Mr. Bean Holiday – 9/8
The first trailer didn’t impress me much, but this new one looks promising. And, hey, it’s Mr. Bean! C’mon, how could it possibly be anything less than the greatest thing ever? This film recently debuted in England at #1, knocking 300 from that position.
4) Balls Of Fury – 9/14
I know you’re thinking that this and the last film both come out in September, after the Summer. Well, you’re stupid, summer lasts as long as you believe it does… and when the calendar says it does.
Balls of Fury looks dumb. But Christopher Walken is in it and he cracks me up.
3) Superbad – 8/17
This is produced by and stars Seth Rogen of Freaks & Geeks, Undeclared, and 40 Year Old Virgin fame. It also has that George Michael Bluth kid from Arrested Development. How can this film possibly fail?
2) King of Kong – ???
This movie… is about two guys… who play… DONKEY KONG! Awesome!
1) Knocked Up – 6/1/07
This stars Seth Rogen of Freaks & Geeks, Undeclared, and 40 Year… wait, whoa, deja-vu. Jay Baruchel, also from Undeclared, and Jason Segal, also from Freaks and Geeks, are both featured players. Need another person to connect all these movies and shows together? It’s directed by Judd Apatow, who also did Freaks & Geeks, and Undeclared, and 40 Year Old Virgin. So… yes, um, here’s the trailer:
