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.
Happy Halloween! No tricks, but a major treat — some eye candy, in fact.
We’ve been following actress Maggie Q’s career ever since she graced our cover for our June/July 2006 issue. Though she landed on the American media radar with her starring role opposite Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible III in 2006, and Live Free or Die Hard opposite Bruce Willis, she’s been a mega star in Asia for years.
Most recently, she’s been spotted on the red carpet for the premiere of New York, I Love You, a romantic drama starring Natalie Portman, Orlando Bloom and Blake Lively. As usual, she looked stunning in a Grecian-inspired draped jersey gown with de rigeur cutouts by BODYAMR, Le Vian onyx and diamond earrings, and a Le Vian onyx and diamond ring.
Maggie’s keeping busy shooting Chinese films, like the action flick The Warrior and the Wolf, out in China now. Look out for her in her next project, Priest, starring Paul Bettany, due out in 2010.
