    NEW: Monsoon Summer Movie Guide 2010

    In an admittedly weak summer for movies, Monsoon has compiled a list of the remaining blockbuster hits for the months of June and July. Fortunately, there are still some potential hits left, and they’re detailed below.

    “”Toy Story 3″”

    Voices of: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen

    After an 11 year hiatus, Woody, Buzz and the rest of the toys are back, bringing you their final toy-filled adventure. In this installment, Andy is off to college while the toys are off to daycare…but not by choice! Now, they must try and escape the toddlers’ filthy hands and make their way back to Andy before he leaves. Get in line early; this one will be packed for weeks.

    In theaters: June 18, 2010

    “”Grown Ups””

    Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, David Spade

    After the death of their old basketball coach, five high school friends (Sandler, James, Rock, Schneider, Spade) will be reuniting to bring you a comedy of a lifetime. Here, the friends decide to spend Fourth of July weekend together, along with their wives and children. Promises to be at least mildly funny.

    In theaters: June 25, 2010

    “”The Last Airbender””

    Starring: Noah Ringer

    Based off the hit children’s cartoon series, “”Avatar: The Last Airbender,”” M. Knight Shyamalan brings you the live-action story of Aang (Ringer), a 12-year-old boy who is one of the last Avatars (no, not the blue elves). He has the power to control all four elements, making him the only one capable to save humanity from the clutches of the Fire Nation, whose ruler has started a war against all three of the other countries. May be Shyamalan’s comeback.

    In theaters: July 02, 2010

    “”Despicable Me””

    Voices of: Steve Carell, Jason Segal, Russell Brand

    Evil mastermind Gru (Carell) always gets outdone by his nemesis Vector (Segal). Now that he finally has a plan to outsmart him – by stealing the moon – out of the blue, three-orphaned girls show up on his doorstep. After deciding to adopt them, Gru finds himself struggling at being No. 1 villain as well as No. 1 Dad in this animated comedy. Has the most potential of any animated film since “”Up.””

    In theaters: July 09, 2010


    Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page

    Christopher Nolan, director of “”The Dark Knight”” and “”The Prestige,”” is bringing you another action-packed thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Dom Cobb (DiCaprio) is a thief who specializes in “”subconscious security,”” or the stealing of ideas from dreams. In his final mission, Cobb must commit the most heinous crime, which requires him to do the complete opposite. Instead of steal, he must plant an idea, or an inception. If Nolan’s track record is any indication, this one should be another knockout.

    In theaters: July 16, 2010
