Some big movies still coming later this summer

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Summer is in full swing, and you love those action movies.  With "Spider-Man" in theaters you may think it's done, but no.  One of the biggest movies of the summer is set for release, plus there are some others that you should pay attention to.

The final of the Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale trilogy of Batman, "The Dark Knight Rises" soars over this July like a king, but don't count out the all-star comedy "The Watch" with Ben Stiller heading up a cast any neighborhood would watch fight aliens with Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill.

The reboot of "Total Recall" with Colin Farrell will make you think about the reality of a summer blockbuster happening in August along with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis running for office in "The Campaign".

Jeremy Renner picks up "The Borne Legacy", while Sly and the old school heroes are back with a few extra men for "The Expendables 2".

Finally, there's Whitney Houston's last film "Sparkle" and Shia LaBeouf transforming his star power for the true life inspired "Lawless".

"Lawless" is one Fox 2's Lee Thomas is very excited about.  Our resident critic Kirk Vanderbeek says look out for a movie called "ParaNorman".  It's an animated film like you've never seen before.
