Set your phasers on stun and break out the Romulan ale, because with the release of J.J. Abrams Star Trek sequel/reboot, the summer movie season is officially underway. The new Star Trek film is indeed a hoot, and there are several other flicks waiting in the wings that promise to include significant booze-centric content. Here's a quick rundown by release date:
May 8th - Tilda Swinton stars as a down-on-her-luck alky who becomes embroiled in a kidnapping plot in Julia.
June 5th - The director of Old School presents The Hangover. I'm rooting for this one, because I'd like to see Zach Galifianakis have a breakout hit.
July 10th - The hilarious, Thurber Award-winning book, I Love You, Beth Cooper gets the big screen treatment. And what's a teen comedy without under-aged drinking? By the way, the book is one of the funniest I've ever read. It's like a John Hughes movie, except good.
August 7th - Meryl Streep portrays Julia Child in Julie and Julia. Let's add a little more wine. Bon appétit!
