Warm weather and beach trips may feel like years away during these freezing cold nights, so I thought writing about some “hot” movies for the summer may help sandals and pool parties come just a bit faster. Our writer Bonnie saw previews of many of these films while in Los Angeles last weekend for the Gnomeo & Juliet premiere. Looks like we have lots to look forward to from Disney. Here’s her inside scoop below:
Prom – Hit theaters on April 29th, 2011
This movie personally my most-anticipated movie of the summer. The story that leads us through the few weeks before prom until the big day looks to be a hit with all ages. Even though this movie may seem like a perfect fit for teens, I think adults will enjoy reminiscing their own high school proms all over again.
Cars 2 – Hits theaters on June 24th, 2011
The anticipated sequel of the popular Cars movie has finally come, and I’m sure your kids won’t have any trouble reminding you when it hits the big screen.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – Releases on May 20th
I’m excited for two things in this movie: Jack Sparrow’s new love interest – Penelope Cruz and the new mermaid zombies. For parents and kids alike who are Little Mermaid fans, you may want to be aware of the new twist on some of Ariel’s friends.
Mars Needs Moms – Hits theaters on March 11th, 2011
I actually got to see this entire movie when I went to Hollywood for the Gnomeo and Juliet premiere, and every mom in the room was crying by the end. If your kids like sci-fi and are ready for some touching scenes, then this may be the perfect movie for them.
Disclosure: Thanks to Disney for the invite to this movie premiere and for covering our travel expenses. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
