      Cyndi10: You're welcome! I enjoyed researching for this. I really want to see Star Trek and Iron Man 3. True; the Robert Redford version is a classic. We'll have to see if the new movie becomes one as well.

      Thanks for the great list. Some of the movies, like Star Trek for instance, I'm waiting for. Others I haven't heard of and then there are some I think will not do well. I'll be vey interested in how the Great Gatsby compares to the Robert Redford version.

      Mike Robbers: Yes, all of these sound awesome. I haven't decided whether or not I want to see 'The Great Gatsby' yet. I'm not a big fan of tragedies, but I'm sure it will be an excellent film adaptation of the book. Thanks for commenting!

      Alecia Murphy: You're right. I think summer movies are more entertaining to the masses, while movies shown around the awards season are more serious and dramatic. You should see Iron Man 2 so you can see the third movie! You're welcome. Thanks for reading. :)

      It seems like all the good movies are saved until summer and awards season. Usually awards season doesn't have that many I'm interested in but I think the summer has some good offerings. I definitely wanna see Star Trek. I should see Iron Man 3 but considering I haven't seen 2 yet I need to follow order of operations. Thanks for sharing!

      jmartin1344: Thanks! Haha; I hadn't heard of all of these until I started researching for this. I want to see most of them! I can't believe how many awesome movies are coming out this summer. I am definitely looking forward to seeing Iron Man 3, but Man of Steel is growing on me. Thanks for your comment!

      Great hub!

      I am anticipating almost all of these big time. I had never actually heard of 'Planes' - that's awesome! I am going to need to write that up on my website. And I call myself a movie buff!!?

      Of them all I am most looking forward to Iron Man 3 or Man of Steel.
