Summer has officially arrived, and with it – Summer Blockbusters! High on the must-watch list this season is Disney Pixar’s girl-power driven animated flick, Brave; and Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter – a movie about our 16th presidents penchant for hunting bloodsuckers.

See what else is coming to a Cineplex near you… after the jump!

BRAVE looks adorable, no? The latest Pixar darling is sure to kill it at the box office, here’s a lil’ preview: “Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.”

And, it stars every accented actor in Hollywood, it seems! Kelly Macdonald of Boardwalk Empire plays the lead, then there’s funnyman Billy Connolly, and the always amazing Emma Thompson.

Next up is ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER. Based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith (who also wrote that Jane Austen zombie book), it’s kind of a funny story about a real life historical figure fighting zombies. Anthony Mackie, Dominic Cooper and Benjamin Walker star. No big names here, but you can bet it’s gonna be bloody!

I’m glad Steve Carell has a new movie out, because I don’t want to wear out my Crazy, Stupid, Love. DVD! SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD stars funny man Carell and hottie Brit Keira Knightly as an unlikely duo who teams up for a road trip to see their family before a meteor destroys the world. It’s like Deep Impact meets Road Trip, maybe?

This movie also features a ton of great actors, including Patton Oswalt, Adam Brody, Rob Corddry and Melanie Lynskey. I’m in!
