This summer is filled with explosive action-flicks that define the term "blockbuster," but there are also a few worthwhile comedies thrown in the mix. For the run-down on what to see this summer, check out our summer blockbuster playlist, in order of their release.
In 2009, J.J. Abrams recreated the Star Trek universe for the big screen giving it a sleeker, shinier façade than films past, while downplaying some of the sci-fi 'geek factor' that makes it so beloved. Yet the iconic characters, campy plotlines, and action-packed, video game-like space battles drew masses of excited Trekkies to the box office. This year, Abrams again 'boldly goes where no man has gone before' with the sequel, Star Trek: Into Darkness and we anticipate it will be just as splashy and entertaining as its predecessor. Even better, it's the first of 12 Star Trek films to be released in 3D. Gentlemen, set your phasers to fun.
