Lets get right down to business shall we, summer is a time for the studios to show off the nitty gritty stuff that award seasons of made of. So lets take a moment to forget any blockbuster mishaps the studios have given us this summer and remember that sometimes they can actually make films that don't make you want faux choke on some popcorn to get out of the theatre.

First off is Peter Berg's post-'ets all forget about Battleship' effort Lone Survivor. This testosterone filled, guns, violence 'Grr I'm a big man with a gun' looks like it serves more than just some time filler gun fights. And to be perfectly honest, who isn't the tiny bit intrigued about an Eric Bana/Mark Wahlberg team up, let's hope we get another promo circuit bromance.


Onto something a little lighter now, Ben Stiller is back behind the camera (actually he's in front of it as well but stick with me) in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. I imagine this remake is going to hit home with a lot of people, who hasn't daydreamed about throwing someone they, ahem 'dislike', out of a window? Feel good film of the year? Possibly, especially with bonus love interest Kristen Wiig and Adam Scott as the office bully. Also the music choice ('Animal' by Of Monsters and Men) is perfect against a trailer that has only three lines of dialogue. Am I a bit too excited by this? Quite possibly yes.


Okay so what happens when Batman, Hawkeye and Katniss appear in a film together? Sorry, this isn't some one-off multi fandom crossover, there are no capes or psychological scarred bad guys in this one, but Hello Bradley Coopers neat like head of curls. American Hustle not only reunites the Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell with Jennifer Lawrence, Cooper and Robert De Niro, but we get Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner thrown in too. Honestly, I have no idea what's really going on in this trailer, but I'm sensing we're in for some cracking hairstyles, a lot of 1970s flares and an even more impressive soundtrack. I kinda like the idea of American conmen being partial to a good bit of Led Zeppelin (sex, drugs and rock 'n roll are not so subtly implied here).


Oh and if you've ever wondered why Hollywood hasn't made a film about a stay-at-home mom who brings a stripper home to live with them… no need to dream any longer! Afternoon Delight is actually real and I'll just leave this here to see what everyone else makes of it…
