2007 Summer Movies Preview – Part 2

Okay sports fans,  this post is part two to my 2007 Summer Movie “Blockbusters” blog I did a month or so ago.  This time I am going to cover movies that might not be the “Blockbusters” the hype machine we call Hollywood would like us to believe, but these are movies that very well could have the potential to hit one out of the park or a nice triple at the warning track.  So get your coke, open a new box of Milk Duds, sit back, and roll the film – Action!

Mr. BrooksMr Brooks 

Kevin Costner stars in this thriller as Earl Brooks a white collar work, who is husband, father, philanthropist and has a dark secret that his family has no idea of — he is a serial killer.  This thriller follows the footsteps of Mr. Brooks as he is chased by detective Tracy Atwood after he was caught on film by an amateur photographer who uses this opportunity to manipulate the situation.  How will this end?  Opens June 1st.
