X marks the spot - for May movies! (Sadly the X-Men movie is not among them… Next month!!!) For all of my new followers and blogger buddies, I post a select list of upcoming movies every month. So, if you want to know what all the cool people are seeing in the theater, keep reading. (And by cool, I mean those enjoying the air conditioning as well as the Ninja cool people!)

Director: Kenneth Branagh

The Plot: The warrior Thor (Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Hopkins) for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live among humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster (Portman) teaches Thor much-needed lessons, and his new-found strength comes into play as a villain from his homeland sends dark forces toward Earth.
Oh yeah, I’m there!!

Again, this movie just looks awesome. And on Friday the 13 - nice!
Director: Rob Marshall

The Plot: After crossing paths with a woman from his past (Cruz), Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) is swept aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (McShane), on an unexpected mission to find the elusive fountain of youth.
I wasn’t crazy about the last two, but now that they’ve dumped Will and Elizabeth, it appears the story will return to silly fun.

The Plot: Po (voice of Black) and the Furious Five venture to China to battle a villain and uncover the secrets of Po's mysterious origins.
More awesomeness! And Black REALLY needs a hit right now…
Any look enticing to you?
