Each summer, moviegoers form lines at the theaters to be the first to see the newest crop of action-packed-hilarity-inducing flicks. For many it’s just something to do; for others it’s an addiction. And Hollywood doesn’t exactly make it easy for them to break the habit. Since the first summer blockbuster hit of yesteryear (thanks to Steven Spielberg’s Jaws), the movies have gotten bigger and better throughout the years (e.g., Independence Day, Iron Man, The Dark Night, Inception). But films with smaller budgets have also found their way into the spotlight (think Knocked Up and (500) Days of Summer).
This summer, the storylines of your favorite movies will continue, while new ones will be introduced hoping the marquee names catch your eyes. (Pick up our Summer 2011 issue, out in early June, for a full list of all the must-see summer movies!) Meanwhile, here’s a list of some pre-summer releases starring your favorite AA celebs (and some newcomers) — from Ken Jeong to Maggie Q – to whet your appetite.
Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung showed their style prowess while promoting their new movie Sucker Punch, hitting the red carpet in an array of beautiful gowns and minis. What makes their red carpet moments so noteworthy is each girl’s distinct styles. Vanessa rocked the boho chic and Jaime kept it elegant and fresh. Check out Audrey‘s picks for their top three looks from their world press promotion.
Sucker Punch LA Premiere, March 23
The latest Zack Snyder (300, Sin City) action-fantasy romp, Sucker Punch premiered over the weekend and took home the number 2 title at the box office. What may have helped the film’s numbers could be the main cast’s genuine chemistry. Stars Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone and Jamie Chung really seem to like each other! There may be lots of fighting onscreen, but don’t expect any cat fights once the camera stops rolling.
Dear Vanessa Hudgens,
It’s me, Janice. You don’t know me but I am quite familiar with you and your public persona. I’ve been one of your early fans, following you from your ascent as Miss High School Musical, singing and dancing your way to the top of Disney royalty as Gabriella Montez. I remember when you first came onscreen–pretty girl, sweet voice, what’s not to love?
For someone who’s supposed to be a featured star within a film, they really don’t show it in this new trailer for Sucker Punch. A new trailer for Sucker Punch just premiered and it mainly features the protagonist, Baby Doll played by Emily Browning, but none of Korean American Jamie Chung’s character, Amber. I’ve watched through this trailer twice now and I haven’t spotted her once in it. The new trailer mainly focuses on the special effects from the film, which are absolutely gorgeous, but I WANT MORE JAMIE CHUNG. I mean, they have a character poster for her, doesn’t that mean she should have some screen time in the new trailer?
My poor husband. This summer’s been filled with must-see’s for me, from Sex and the City 2 to the documentary Babies, and now my guilty pleasure, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, is finally coming out!
Thank goodness there’s a film opening tomorrow that he might actually like (and that I’d be willing to see!). Grown Ups features a heavyweight comedy cast, including Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade and Filipino-Jewish American Rob Schneider.
We ran into Chinese American actress Di Quon, whom we’ve featured in Audrey, late last year and she told us about her role as Rita in the film. She said it was amazing to be in a scene standing there between these legendary comic geniuses. Can’t wait to see her in the film!
Another Asian American making an appearance is former Audrey cover girl Jamie Chung. The Korean American actress stars as Amber Hilliard in the film.
Grown Ups opens tomorrow, June 25.
What do you think? With a cast like that, will it be a hit? Or a flop?
