Movie May-nia

I may have mentioned it before but just in case....I love, love, love the month of May. I get to celebrate Mother's Day and my birthday. This means that there are 2 whole days where my "mini-me" has to be on her best behavior. The weather gets noticeably better and the local drive-in opens. The best part of May is that marks the beginning of " Summer blockbuster" season! Anyone who knows me will tell you that I just love watching previews. I mean how else am I supposed to know what I want to watch. I love all genres of movies but nothing is better than a good comedy or action flick. I already mentioned in a previous post how excited I get for any and all Marvel Studio projects whether it is on the big screen, Netflix, or TV.  This month has so many options like Hot Pursuit(May 8) starring Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon, Mad Max Fury Road (May 15) starring Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy, Tomorrowland (May 22) starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson and Poltergeist (May 22) starring Sam Rockwell and RoseMarie DeWitt. These are all movies I intend to see but there are two others that I am beyond excited about seeing. The first is Pitch Perfect 2 (May 15) starring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Elizabeth Banks as well as many other amazing talents. I am going with a group to see it opening night. Not only did I buy the first movie for my home collection but I also bought the soundtrack. Both of these have received multiple uses. Seriously, my kid and I play the soundtrack so much that we each have our own specific parts to sing. We are not even going to talk about excessive quoting of lines. Check out the trailer below.  The other film I am anxiously awaiting is San Andreas (out May 29) featuring Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino.  These two worked together on the movie Faster and I just love them both. Truth be told I would watch a commercial of paint drying if The Rock was in it but it just works out well for me that he happens to be an amazingly good actor. This movie is being shown in 3D which is exactly how I plan to watch. I follow Dwayne Johnson on Facebook and so he has been passing along pics and info throughout the whole filming to fans. I know this is going to be one of those "on the edge of my seat" type of films.
