This summer’s procession of big-budget cinematic endeavors features remakes, reboots and sequels. Most moviegoers have grown used to seeing superheroes plucked from the pages of comic books thrust onto the big screen along with films featuring alien invasions and international intrigue. For fans of these films, the 2016 summertime movie lineup offers some appealing prospects.

When does the fun begin? It already has.

The Gregorian calendar may assert that summer doesn’t begin until June 20. Pinellas County school students are well aware that the last day of school falls on June 7 this year. For beachgoers, summer kicks off with Memorial Day - which is Monday, May 30.

PALM HARBOR - Graham Sheldon began producing films while he was a student at Palm Harbor University High School: documenting the school’s swim team and filming special effects with toy fighter planes on kebab skewers in front of cardboard sets in his garage.

Today, the 29-year-old is producing two feature films: a romantic comedy “The Good Catholic” starring Danny Glover and John C. McGinley and a horror film “Dry Blood.” He has been involved in documentaries “all over planet Earth,” he said, including projects that have won him an Emmy Award and two Telly Awards. He’s produced video games and even wrote a hit mobile game app.
