Last year, the season kicked off with IRON MAN - a movie that critics and audiences alike loved, like, really loved, for Robert Downey Jr's endlessly entertaining jettison into A-list stardom. And it made buckets of money.
This week? Well, we have "Wolverine" and "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past."
Wolverine currently sits at a tepid, dismissive 42% on Metacritic.
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is enjoying a nice, warm 38%.
Granted, no one expected the critics to go ga-ga over Wolverine (just watch the trailer, it's utterly ridiculous), but after the leaked workprint version last month, will these reviews render the movie void? Or a better question may be, will action fans skip out in favor of waiting for Star Trek next week?
Awesome way to start the summer, guys!
