New Looks At 'Bad Teacher,' 'The Change-Up,' 'The Hangover 2' & 'Beginners' As Well



Yep, it's another batch of photos from this summer's upcoming movies so here is a roundup with our pithy comments to help you out. Most of these are from MTV's Summer Movie Preview with others from here are there so let's get started.

Oh look, another picture from "X-Men: First Class" which boldly goes in the same direction of having everyone standing around and grouped together! Scintillating! The mutants visit the set of "Mad Men" on June 3rd.



Apple has dropped two brand new pics from "Transformers: We Promise This One Won't Suck Has As Hard As Revenge Of Fallen." Rosie Huntington-Whiteley! A robot! Whoa! All of this is in anticipation of a new trailer which drops later this week. The film will skullfuck your eyes and ruin your eardrums with Linkin Park on July 1st.

"The Avengers" started filming this week and Marvel has brought down Skynet with their earth shattering set photo from the film featuring -- wait for it, and you might need to take a deep breath -- four chairs. We're not sure what's worse: that Marvel thinks this little of their fanbase or that this lame photo is actually making the rounds. Depressing. "The Avengers" will cram all their superheroes together on May 4, 2012.

Damn you, "Captain America: The First Avenger" we can't make fun of this pic. A pretty decent new look at Chris Evans doing his superhero thing. What can we say? We dig it. Joe Johnston will try to make us believe on July 22nd.

The Wolfpack is back in a picture from the upcoming sequel that doesn't have them looking greased up and obliterated from a night of partying. In fact, it looks like Jimmy Buffet might show up any moment. "The Hangover Part II" will make your Memorial Day more fun.

For the sake of her career, Cameron Diaz is hoping "Bad Teacher" turns things around from the string of rom-com and side player roles she's been enduring for the past little while. What better way to get attention that to wear Daisy Dukes with a flannel shirt tied around her belly. Join in the R-rated fun on June 24th.

Speaking of R-rated, here's the "Freaky Friday"-esque "The Change-Up" in which Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds switch bodies and boners with hilarious results. Things get dirty on August 5th.

Finally, classing up the joint considerably is Mike Mills' charming and winsome dramedy "Beginners" with Ewan McGregor and Melanie Laurent. We saw it at SXSW and loved it to pieces calling it, "an astute, enchanting and attentive examination of loving, losing and living that...makes you sigh and swoon in equal measure." Get out of the blockbuster glut and go see this when it opens on June 3rd.
