(Newser) – In Hollywood, May flowers don’t bring Pilgrims; they bring summer blockbusters. The Wall Street Journal takes a look at the season’s most promising flicks:

  • May 21: Christian Bale stars in Terminator Salvation, a prequel that tries to hew closer to the first two hit films instead of taking cues from the third, a real clunker.

  • June 12: Denzel Washington and John Travolta face off in Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, a modern retelling of the 1974 classic.
  • July 15: When Harry met Ginny? Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince finds our young hero falling for his best friend’s sister.
  • July 31: Judd Apatow’s Funny People is actually about death—specifically how Adam Sandler’s character deals with it and bonds with a fellow comedian (Seth Rogen).
