Summertime is so close I can feel it, and this season brings more than sunny days and vacations: it's also one of the best times of the year for movies. This Summer is no exception: there are eagerly anticipated sequels, big-budget action movies, and comedies galore. There are even a few under-the-radar gems, but we're here to put those — along with the other big titles — on your radar. Without further ado, here's your Summer movie preview for May and June.
Channing Tatum turns 33 this week, and we can't think of a better way to celebrate than with plenty of onscreen eye candy. Last year he made fans swoon with his sexy strip routines in Magic Mike, but Channing's dance moves first won hearts back in 2006 with Step Up — including the heart of his costar-turned-wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Since then, the heartthrob has shown that he can look hot no matter what he's wearing, whether it's a uniform, a swimsuit, or little more than a tie. In honor of his birthday, take a look at Channing Tatum's sexiest movie moments!

There seems to be two sides to the stereotypical coin when it comes to portraying librarians. They're either shy, strict, shushing, and often elderly ladies, or they're the young, hot "sexy librarian" who will take off her glasses and let her hair down to seduce you. But there have been exceptions to the rule, proving that smart and witty librarians can be "sexy" without the cleavage. No matter how they're portrayed, it's interesting to see the many iterations of librarians in books, movies, and even music videos over the years. Let's take a look back at the evolution of these book-stamping babes now!
We're just two months away from White House Down's June 28 release, but why wait until then to see Channing Tatum looking all hot and ready for action? Tatum plays John Cale, a DC policeman who gets caught in the White House when the building is attacked by enemy forces. Suddenly, it's in John's hands to save the president (Jamie Foxx) — and to look smokin' hot in the process. Go ahead and check out the film stills, and don't be ashamed to wallpaper your desktop with them.

On this date, April 13, 60 years ago, the very first James Bond novel was published, spurring a franchise that has captured the world with its titular hero who prefers his martinis shaken, not stirred. That book, Ian Fleming's Casino Royale, was first adapted into a TV episode in 1954, then a parody film in 1967, and finally, the 2006 film starring our current Bond, Daniel Craig. Ian Fleming went on to write a total of 12 novels and two short-story collections starring the British spy, and they were all made into Bond films.
Clearly a lot has changed since 1962, when Connery became the first Bond on the big screen in Dr. No and the iconic sexy, suited-up secret agent was born on the big screen. Aside from impeccable dressing and his shaken, not stirred, martini, it's Bond's lady-killer skills that have stood the test of time, even while 007 has been reincarnated over the years by a handful of actors playing the film role to kill for. Let's look back at the best, most innuendo-filled pickup lines from the gun-wielding heartthrob!
Matt Damon is flexing his action star muscle in the first trailer for Elysium, and this time, he's bald, beautiful, and ready to take on the oppressive forces of the future. It's the year 2154 and there's no war, disease, or poverty — if you're one of the privileged who lives on the space station Elysium. Damon's character Max unfortunately dwells on Earth, where things have gotten pretty bad, especially for ex-prisoner Max, who becomes infected with a deadly toxin. Knowing he could die unless he gets to Elysium, he agrees to go on a mission there to help the people of Earth, even though Elysium's authorities (including Jodie Foster) will do anything to stop him.
This is the second feature-length film from Neill Blomkamp, who also directed 2009's District 9, and if you saw that, the similarities to the setting in Elysium are unmistakable. Except for the aliens, unless you count the weird armor coming out of Matt Damon's character's skull. I loved District 9 and I love Damon more, so I'm interested, but I wish the sci-fi angle was a little more exciting and fresh. But watch and judge for yourself; Elysium is set for release Aug. 9, and you can watch the full trailer
The movies bring us a lot of repeat collaborations, and we've already pointed out the actors who keep playing couples and the frequent director/star combos. But there's another partnership that's fun too: when the same actors keep playing friends. Sometimes it's coincidence, and sometimes it's because the stars are friends in real life, but we love seeing this kind of platonic chemistry, too. See who keeps wanting to pal around on screen!
