We're jumping ahead to late June as we look at the second half of the month when schools are starting to let out and more people have free time to kill by going to the movies. On June 14, Warner Bros. will be opening Man of Steel
, directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan, and while we have no doubt in our minds the movie is going to open big and do a lot of business over the course of the summer, it has a lot of movies opening on its tail.
One week later, we get the latest from Disney•Pixar and their third sequel Monsters University
, the follow-up to the 2001 animated hit Monsters Inc.
, while Brad Pitt stars in the apocalyptic thriller World War Z
, based on Max Brooks' popular series of novels. A week after that, on June 28, Roland Emmerich returns with White House Down
, an invasion movie starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, which will take on the comedy pairing of Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in The Heat
So the question is whether the month of June can handle so many big movies, particularly when you have a Pixar sequel opening a week after the first Superman movie in seven years?
