Summer Movie Guide: The 6 Blockbusters You Can't Miss in 2012

The temperature is rising, the trees are growing leaves again, and the days are getting longer; this can only mean one thing. Summer! And with Summer comes Summer Blockbusters in all varieties. This year we’ve got movies of all kinds, from sequels to remakes to board game adaptations.

So if you’re ready to get out your wallet, help boost the economy, and pay $20 for two hours of fake explosions and superhero fights this Summer, Shalom Life is here to tell you which movies from your favourite Hollywood Jews are worth looking forward to.

The Avengers – May 4th

The first weekend in May has always been the unofficial start of Summer, with the highest grossing films of the year coming out to kick off the Blockbuster season. In years past we’ve had Sam Raimi’s Spiderman 3, and Jon Favreau’s Iron Man films owning the weekend, but this year we have the superhero film to end all superhero films; Marvel’s The Avengers. It’s taken quite a few films and many years to get here, but we finally made it; it’s the culmination of every action-packed Marvel film in recent memory and it stars all of our beloved heroes. Chris Evans is Captain America, Mark Ruffalo is The Hulk, and Robert Downey Jr. is everyone’s favourite snarky rich guy. Oh…and he’s also playing Iron Man.

Expect explosions, aliens, superheroes, and yet another amazing cameo from Stan Lee to add to his ever-growing resume when the film is released on May 4th.
