Summer of Sequels – Batman, The Expendables 2 and The Bourne Legacy

This summer is set to be a scorcher in terms of film releases – which may make up for the lack of sunshine I guess?

On Friday I went to see the long-anticipated Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. I’ve always been a fan of Marvel/DC films and this was one I was eagerly awaiting- much like everyone else who was queuing at 5am for the double whammy of Batman action.

I must say I was very impressed – although not sure about Anne Hathaway playing Cat Woman – I could have obviously made a better one. As always, Christopher Nolan did not disappoint – the film brings Batman’s story to a dramatic conclusion and leaves us to believe that Robin’s story will continue.

The trailers before showed us the action doesn’t stop with Batman, as this August more action sequels are hitting our screens…

The Bourne Legacy is released on the 13th, which centres on a new hero whose plight has been triggered from the event of the previous three films – think intense action/adventure/thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole way through.

On August 16th The Expendables 2 is released, seeing our favourite team reunite for what seems like an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered, a thirst for revenge takes over and leads them into enemy territory.
