Oh Yes - May of 2008 Crammed Full of Blockbusters!

To some, this may be bad news, to others, this may get their levels of excitement fueled to the max. Last August I wrote a controversial article about Why 2007 Will Be A Great Year For Movies, and now I present to you a look at why 2008 may be as good as or even better than 2007 in one month alone. Sure, not all of these may be your "cup 'o tea" but they're still going to be pretty big blockbusters guaranteed. From Iron Man to Indiana Jones 4 and Speed Racer, here's the latest list of May 2008 releases.
The Day the Earth Stood Still (Remake) - May 9th
No information on a director or even a plot, but the date is confirmed by Fox.
The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - May 16th
The sequel to 2005's The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, that's supposed to be even more epic and full of CGI than the last.
Indiana Jones 4 - May 22nd
Probably the single most highly anticipated film out of all of 2008, the classic hero Indiana Jones returns in a fourth sequel supposedly starring Shia LaBeouf and bringing back Harrison Ford to the big screen.
Speed Racer - May 23rd
The Wachowski Brothers are at it again, this time taking on this cartoon classic for a live action adaptation.
And even a rumor that Rambo IV (aka John Rambo) may be opening up in the same month, too.
This is all pretty damn far out, because we still have to go through this upcoming May: Spider-Man 3, 28 Weeks Later, Shrek 3, and Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End. The suits at the studios obviously know May is the month to make the money, and it's always an exciting time to look forward to every year no matter what opens. In the meantime, we'll be getting you excited for this year's upcoming May…
