1. Earth (Disneynature, 1,804 Theaters, 96 Minutes, Rated G): A sure sign that Summer is right around the corner is when movies start coming out on Wednesday. And since in today’s climate we can never be sure that the leaves will change or warm weather will ever arrive, this might now be all that we’ve got.
This film is like a big screen verson of the BBC documentary Planet Earth. This version focuses on the migratory patterns of three families of animals. From the look of it, Polar Bears, Whales and Elephants.
A nature documentary might not scream “summer blockbuster”, but let’s not forget that March of the Penguins was a surprise success. This film has a similar theme, but three times the animals. How could it lose?
