Letters to Juliet — If you need a break from the action films that typically dominate early summer (Iron Man 2, Robin Hood), Letters to Juliet is the just the chick flick you need. Seyfried’s role in this film is remarkably similar to the one she played in gay fave Mamma Mia! Sophie, Seyfried’s character, snoops, finds letters detailing a romance, and helps a woman find her long-lost lover while on vacation in Italy. Vanessa Redgrave costars, with her actual husband playing the role of her love interest in the film. With a whimsical love story, some hot actors, and breathtaking scenes of Italy, Letters to Juliet promises more of the same lighthearted entertainment for which Seyfried has become known.
Just Wright — In Just Wright, Queen Latifah plays a tough-love physical therapist working with an NBA all-star (played by fellow rapper Common) after an injury. Latifah’s character is forced to compete for the basketball player’s affections against a childhood friend, her polar opposite. The plot of this film gives Latifah’s character a Cinderella story, with Common as the quiet but genuinely good prince. With a lack of nudity and romance scenes and an abundance of tame one-liners, expect Just Wright to play like a Tyler Perry comedy without the drag.
Robin Hood — Merry men in tights are more than enough to get gays to watch Robin Hood. With Russell Crowe’s body looking better than it has since his Gladiator glory days, this film also boasts Cate Blanchett as the strong-willed Lady Marion. Robin Hood is Crowe’s fifth collaboration with Ridley Scott and promises a refreshing update on the medieval classic.
