3. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – Release Date: June 26, 2009
The sequel to the biggest summer hit of 2007, Transformers, the followup keeps relatively same cast, same director and the same robots. What’s new? For starters, Rainn Wilson from NBC’s smash comedy The Office and…well that’s about it. If director Michael Bay can keep the same formula of action, more action and Megan Fox, I’m sure that’s enough to keep fans happy. I know it is for me.
4. G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra – Release Date: August 7, 2009
I have serious qualms about putting this movie on the list. Fast forward to this time next year and something tells me G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra will not be placed on any “Best of ’09” lists.
Featuring a dubious cast including Brendan Fraser, Channing Tatum, Dennis Quaid and Sienna Miller as The Baroness, expect a Mummy-esque plot. As for the action, cinematographer Mitchell Amundsen, who’s worked on Wanted and Transformers will also be providing his services for what promises to be a high-octane popcorn muncher.
