Blockbusters coming soon in May

So we've come to the end of April and toward the months of blockbusters ahead.
It's the attack of the "thirds" to begin with in May.
Three movies coming up that are the third from their respective franchise.

Leading the line is Spider-Man 3, set to be released on 1st May.
I have no doubt that this 3rd installment of the Spider-Man franchise is going to be a big hit regardless of any reviews.
What reason have you, after watching Spider-Man (2002) and Spider-Man 2 (2004) not to go see this 3rd one?
Unless you hate Tobey Maguire of course.

Tobey Maguire has made the role of Peter Parker a.k.a Spider-Man his.
He created a buzz no doubt when at the film's world premiere in Tokyo, Japan on 16th April saying Spider-Man 3 could be his last appearance as our favorite web-slinging Marvel Superhero.
In fact, do you know that Tobey Maguire could have missed out on Spider-Man 2?
After suffering serious back injuries while filming Seabiscuit in 2002, Sony Pictures had considered recasting their lead.
The familiar face of Tobey Maguire in the famous blue and red suit could have been replaced by Jake Gyllenhaal.
But Tobey Maguire recovered and the rest is history.

Following Spider-Man 3 is Shrek the Third due to be released 17th May, first in Russia before 18th May in USA and 31st May in Malaysia and Singapore.

The oh-so-not your usual fairytale green friend, Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers) is back again for a third time with Princess Fiona (Voiced by Cameron Diaz).
What laughter and cheer are they going to bring us from their adventure this time?
Psst.. Word has it that a fourth installment is in the pipeline and it could very well be the last one!

Summing up May is Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End opening worldwide on 23rd , 24th and 25th May.
With a charismatic cast in Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley, it's no wonder Pirates of the Caribbean is heading into its third and final sail.
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End would conclude this popular trilogy.

Can Captain Jack Sparrow triumph in this final battle?
You'll have to find out yourself.

Remember to watch this space for the previews and reviews busting your way this May.
