Beasts of the Southern Wild

Beasts of the Southern Wild

Beasts of the Southern Wild

Benh Zeitlin’s tale of a six-year-old Southerner on a fanciful quest was much buzzed about—and took the Grand Jury Prize—at Sundance. Sounds like we might have a major new talent on our hands. (Jun 29)

Magic Mike

Magic Mike

Already, trailers for the “Channing Tatum male-stripper movie” have generated much in-pants heat among a surprisingly large constituency. A more curious question: After Contagion and the martial-arts spy flick Haywire, who’s planning director Steven Soderbergh’s career? (Jun 29)

Neil Young Journeys

Neil Young Journeys

Jonathan Demme completes his concert-movie trilogy about the iconic musician (after 2006’s Neil Young: Heart of Gold and 2009’s Neil Young Trunk Show) with this solo show in Toronto. No one shoots onstage performance like Demme, so we’re more than ready to rock. (Jun 29)

Ted

Ted

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane makes his feature debut with a hard-R comedy, in which a thirtysomething single guy (Mark Wahlberg) pals around with a foulmouthed, alcoholic teddy bear. Peter Griffin is already cackling his approval. (Jun 29)

The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man

The web-slinging superhero franchise is rebooted by (500) Days of Summer helmer Marc Webb, who should strike a nice balance between romance and action. But we’re even more excited to see Andrew Garfield filling out the skintight Spidey duds. (July 4)
