It’s time to start taking our annual look at summer family movies. This summer looks like an interesting mix – a couple of new original animated films (Brave near the beginning of the summer, and ParaNorman at the end); a dose of post-Avengers Superheroes (the beginning of a Spider-Man franchise reboot and the conclusion of the Dark Knight trilogy); several kid-focused sequels (Madagascar, Ice Age, and Wimpy Kid); and a couple of wildcards (Universal’s darker retelling of the Snow White story – after this Spring’s lighter “Mirror, Mirror” and Disney’s own just-plain-strange “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.”). Oh, and don’t forget the Men in Black sequel, coming out 10 years after the last installment in the franchise. So what are you looking forward to seeing? Tell us more about it in the comments.
