1. Star Trek – Release Date: May 8, 2009
The Star Trek franchise has taken a beating the past couple decades. Box office revenue has dropped, fans have cried foul and certain little ring-carrying creatures have placed the entire non-lightsabering scifi genre onto the backseat. That is until Paramount cried “reboot” and the man with the golden touch came running.
J.J. Abrams, the producer of Lost, Alias and Fox’s current hit, Fringe, will be directing the new crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise. More action, grittier, and sexier, Star Trek is sure to bring in new fans. Something the franchise has been needing for quite some time.
What has worked for Batman and James Bond will most certainly work for Captain Kirk. Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Eric Bana, Star Trek is expected to be first big hit of the summer movie season. Reelloop
