The Best 3 Weeks All Summer Long

June 2, 2007

From Wednesday, June 27th through July 4th to Wednesday, July 11th, these weeks will be the best 3 weeks you'll see all summer long. You want to know why? Just look at the line-up of movies that are opening! There is Live Free or Die Hard (4.0), Ratatouille, Death at a Funeral, Transformers, Rescue Dawn, and Harry Potter 5. If there is any time to get excited to be going to your local movie theater this summer, it would be these 3 weeks.

This time it's not a matter of how good these movies actually are, because no one has seen them yet, instead it's the hype leading up to them. It's the atmosphere and excitement when you finally catch the midnight show or see the film with packed crowds on opening day. I'm not claiming any of these are the best films of the summer, this is just going to be an exciting 3 weeks for everyone. It's a line-up of some of the most anticipated films of the entire summer.

Keep track of the Summer 2007 Release Schedule right here.

Live Free or Die Hard
Live Free or Die Hard
Opens June 27

The newest film in the Die Hard franchise looks pretty damn incredible and should deliver plenty of action and entertainment, despite being rated only PG-13. Ranks third for films with the biggest following still remaining this summer, only behind Harry Potter and Transformers, also in these few weeks.

Opens June 29

Pixar's next CGI film about a rat who wants to cook and a down-on-his-luck guy who works at a restaurant. It looks like it might be one of the best films of the entire year and I'm excited to finally see it and see how it ranks up against the rest of the Pixar filmography.

Death at a Funeral
Death at a Funeral
Opens June 29

A hilarious comedy about a funeral gone very awry. I've seen this one already and it's my favorite film of the year at the moment. That should be enough to tell you I'm very excited to see it again and share its great comedy with the world.

Opens July 3

My own most anticipated summer film, one that should definitely have more explosions than any film this year and hopefully fulfill all the desires of every Transformers fanboy young and old.

Rescue Dawn
Rescue Dawn
Opens July 4

Another one I've seen that was so damn good I'm excited to see it again with a real audience. This stars Christian Bale as a downed fighter pilot in Vietnam who is captured and must escape a camp deep in the jungle. It's a riveting and incredibly well-made independent film worth seeing.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Opens July 11

I don't think I need to explain Harry Potter anymore. After how amazing Goblet of Fire was, I'm even more excited to join the hordes of Harry Potter fans for this next installment.

And if these 6 movies aren't enough, you'll still be able to catch Knocked Up, Ocean's 13, Surf's Up, Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer, Fido, or 1408, which will all still be playing in theaters! Let us know what you think - are you excited for these 3 weeks?

Agreed....and I'm sure they'll turn out better than the four weeks of Spiderman 3, Shrek 3 and Pirates 3. All three were thoroughly disappointing, overall.
