Summer’s Leading Men
We’re now well past Memorial Day, and the annual summer movie boom is officially upon us. This year’s offerings are as action-packed, goofy, and just plain big (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, anyone?) as ever. Of course, it’s impossible to heat up the screen without the right leading man, and these upcoming blockbusters do not disappoint. From Leonardo DiCaprio as a mind-reading thief to Kieran Culkin as a quirky comic book sidekick to James Franco as Elizabeth Gilbert’s final rebound, there’s something to suit every taste and style.
