The Great Gatsby
In Theaters: May 10
All the hard-sell  – the Leo star power, the sets, the costumes, the soundtrack supervised by Jay-Z – can’t disguise the fact that Baz Luhrmann’s take on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s great American novel appears to choking on its own excess.
In Theaters: June 28
Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton hang out in a rundown British seaside resort. Here’s the twist: They’re vampires. No. No. No. I’ve had enough of the bloodsucking.
Grown Ups 2
In Theaters: July 12
Since the first Grown Ups in 2010 was family comedy at its most fatuous and fun-free, how in hell can Adam Sandler pull off a miracle with a sequel?
Were the Millers
In Theaters: August 9
In this tarted-up road trip movie, Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis play mom and dad. Except she’s a stripper helping him smuggle weed across the Mexican border. Their kids are fake, and I’m getting depressed just thinking about this.

In Theaters: August 9
Since Cars was a hit, I guess Disney animators figured why not put wings on those suckers and send them into the skies as planes?  The lack of originality was so staggering that the original flight plan was to send this one straight to video. But the lure of a fast buck put Planes on a fast rack to theaters. You’ve been warned.
