Hey, who knew summer began in August? I must have missed that email. Yet another effect of global warming, apparently. But lo and behold we finally have a summer tentpole worth getting excited about.

An estimated $2.7 million Thursday is an acceptable, if not sensational, start for the Scarlett Johansson starrer, "Lucy" from acclaimed writer and director Luc Besson. Here's thinking the film translates to an opening in the low 30's but with a less than impressive Cinemascore. Box Office Insider has the projected Weekend Top 10 here...

Looking for some action, bub? Well you've come to the right place. Presented for your approval, we have Scarlett Johansson, equal parts sexy and scary, in "Lucy" and Dwayne Johnson taking the second stab at "Hercules" this year.

"Apes" and the Doppler Radar should be the box office buzz words this coming weekend as Fox's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" will certainly extend Caesar's reign and a weekend chock full of severe storms in the midwest and northeast look to bring a much needed boost to the industry.

That cacophony of crashes, screeches and high octane this-goes-to-11 decimation you hear can only mean two things...it's summer and it's Michael Bay. Yes, both are back with a vengeance this week as Optimus Prime and the rest of the Transformers return in "TF: Age Of Extinction"
