With the release of this Friday's 'Thor,' the summer movie season kicks off with a bang!

In between trips to the beach and Fourth of July fireworks, the hottest time of year will be filled with superheroes, sexy hook-ups, sequels, talking animals, Kevin James, wizards and wedding mishaps. If you need to take a second to catch your breath, this is your last chance to do it before we're hit by the incoming wave of blockbusters.

This week at Moviefone, we'll be giving you daily previews of the most anticipated films due out over the next four months -- spotlighting all the buzzed-about action, comedy, chick flicks, indies and family films. So grab some popcorn -- no matter what your favorite genre is, summer movies have something for everyone.
