WALL-E

This affable robotic fellow is the key to Earth’s survival, having discovered a way to clean up the planet. But he’s also found love – yes, machines have emotions, too. So WALL-E now needs to get together with his darling EVE, and proceed to chart the future. If this isn’t being optimistic, we’re not sure what is. Very reminiscent of 80’s classic Short Circuit, WALL-E looks to be one of this summer’s better animated releases – just look at those warm eyes!

Director: Andrew Stanton
Starring: Jeff Garlin, Sigourney Weaver, Kim Kopff

Hancock

Will Smith gets another chance at even more greatness with this unusual superhero outing, where he plays a man of steel who’s strangely…normal. The guy gets drunk, secludes himself from society and makes all manner of mistakes and odd decisions. However, he also wakes up to his special powers and the good they can be used to carry out, and so Hancock is actually about a journey of growth and self-awareness, not only pretty special effects. 

Director: Peter Berg
Starring: Will Smith, Charlize Theron, Lauren Hill

center of the earth

Journey to the Center of the Earth

Ah, that old sense of adventure that comes with more than two months of summer break. School’s out when a group of explorers head deep into the planet’s crust to find entire forgotten realms, complete with dinosaurs and other fascinating finds. Based on the famed Jules Verne novel, this rendition is also in 3D, only in theaters, which means prepare yourself when those big prehistoric beasties come lunging at you. 

Director: Eric Brevig
Starring: Brendan Fraser, Anita Briem, Josh Hutcherson
Rating: PG

hulk

The Incredible Hulk

If you don’t mind lots of obvious CGI, then this may be the ticket for you. With Edward Norton on board as title character Bruce Banner/The Hulk, acting is not an issue, plus there’s going to be plenty of exciting moments as we revisit the classic green, muscle-bound hero. Needless to say, the Hulk fights in the name of good, and must protect humanity from forces bent on subverting power to their own nefarious ends. In short, a great way to spend two hours!

Director: Louis Leterrier 
Starring: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt
Rating: PG-13

chimp

Space Chimps 

We also have chimps doing the rounds later in the games section, but for now let’s focus on the silver screen. And space – for these guys are no ordinary chimps, they’re chimponauts, traveling among the planets in search of knowledge and probably a good laugh. It all starts out as a political ploy by the system, but soon the eclectic crew of simians proves their mettle and proceed to become bona fide stellar icons. Look forward to this, it’s a genuinely witty animated film that’s bound to satisfy. 

Director: Kirk De Micco
Starring: Jeff Daniels, Patrick Warburton, Cheryl Hines

Mamma Mia!

For romance seekers, this charming little escapade should deliver the goods. We have high hopes for pretty newcomer Amanda Seyfried, who’s only 23 but already set to achieve great things. In Mamma Mia!, Seyfried works together with Meryl Streep,  and the story gives both many chances to excel. In keeping with our theme, you can be confident this feel-good flick will leave you feeling full of hope, as characters bond and love blooms.

Director: Phyllida Lloyd
Starring: Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth
Rating: PG-13
