Summer brings many things -- fireworks, barbecues, bikinis, man-eating sharks ... we could go on. On the movie front, it's the busiest time of year, with this summer in particular chock-full of potential blockbusters practically every weekend till the fall.

So, how can a studio best separate its potential tentpole feature from the pack? While there's no surefire guarantee, one technique that can certainly help is to have the most beautiful actors starring in your movie. Audiences seem to like looking at pretty people.

In honor of this summer's easiest-on-the-eyes performers, we'll be putting together some photo galleries and video collections of these women's sexiest scenes on film all summer long -- strictly for your viewing pleasure.

After the jump, have a look at the upcoming schedule of our Summer's Sexiest Women series, including links to our first three entries for your viewing pleasure.
