2009 Summer Movie Preview



Release date: July 10
Sacha Baron Cohen is at it again! After much controversy with—and many a legal action against—his hit film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, he takes his other famous Da Ali G Show character across the globe in this mockumentary. View the official movie trailer.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Release date: July 17
After a longer than long wait (its initial release date was fall 2008), the penultimate installment of the Harry Potter series will finally theatres. While Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) suspects evil lurking within the halls of Hogwarts, hormones are also raging among the teenage characters. Both fun and gripping, the only downside is this sixth chapter means the film franchise is quickly drawing to a close. View the official movie trailer.

500 Days of Summer

Release date: July 17
This may look like your typical boy-meets-girl story, but the trailer pointedly states that “this is not a love story”. Named an “Official Selection” at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, 500 Days of Summer stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel as Tom and Summer; the former believes in true love and the latter does not. Summer ultimately breaks Tom’s heart, leaving him to recall the beginning of their relationship to its ultimate demise. View the official movie trailer.

The Ugly Truth

Release date: July 24
We all know the old saying: women think with their heads, while men think with… well, their other heads. In The Ugly Truth, Katherine Heigl stars as Abby, a morning show producer who clashes with her correspondent Mike (Gerard Butler), whom she characterizes as a “male pig”. Insistent that men only want one thing, Mike helps Abby get the man of her dream... which leads to surprising consequences. View the official movie trailer.

Julie and Julia
Release date: August 7
We knew the culinary arts would finally make it to the big screen! Based on two books (Julia Child’s autobiography My Life in France and Julie Powell’s Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen), this is the story of Powell (Amy Adams) who takes on the challenge of cooking every recipe out of Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking in the span of a year. The film also chronicles the life of Child (Meryl Streep) during her time in France. View the official movie trailer.

When in Rome

Release date: August 7
Beth (Kristen Bell) is disillusioned with love, and thus makes the trek from New York to Rome. While there, she plucks a few coins from a “magic fountain”, which in turn causes a bevy of New York males to fall for her. When she meets Nick (Josh Duhamel), she’s unsure if his love is genuine or not.

The Time Traveler’s Wife

Release date: August 14
Based on the best-selling novel by Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife stars Eric Bana as Henry, a Chicago librarian who has a genetic disorder that unwillingly allows him to travel through time. During his time travelling, he leaves behind his wife, Clare (Rachel McAdams).  This is certain to draw the same crowd that adored The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and will be quite the tear-jerker.
