It’s getting to be something of a cliché, really: Instead of blazing new cinematic trails with fresh, innovative scripts, Hollywood returns to its glory days seeking to squeeze more box office profit from previous success stories.

This summer’s parade of movies relies heavily on remakes, reboots and sequels. It’s technically already started. So what if the antiquated Gregorian calendar claims summer doesn’t begin until June 21. For Pinellas County students, the last day of school falls on June 2 this year. For beachgoers, summer kicks off with Memorial Day - which is Monday, May 25.

What was Morgan Freeman thinking? Freeman - who won an Academy Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role for "Million Dollar Baby" - certainly has not fallen on hard times. He isn't exactly scrounging for bit parts: He's set to appear in a number of upcoming films, including the 2016 remake of "Ben-Hur." He doesn't even seem like the type to take on a role strictly for a payday.

When presented with the script for "Last Knights" - which stars Freeman and Clive Owen - the acclaimed American actor, director and narrator must have seen something promising.

Can a horror movie be romantic? Beautiful? “Spring” - ostensibly a monster movie - strives to be something different. It challenges preconceptions and examines some of humanity’s deepest mysteries.

Directed by Justin Benson, “Spring” starts out with a handful of familiar genre elements and cunningly molds them into something unexpected and entrancing. Not only is the film surprisingly effective, it also features authentic dialogue and earnest performances from its small cast.

At the mention of the name Cinderella, most people envision one specific rendering of that famous fairy tale persona: For more than half a century, Walt Disney's depiction of the character in the classic 1950 animated film "Cinderella" has been the one most American audiences associate with the tale of "The Little Glass Slipper."

The story dates back to at least to the 1630s. As with most folktales, there are a number of variations and alternative storylines. It is Disney's version, though, with which most children are acquainted today.

With his new film "Maps to the Stars," director David Cronenberg offers viewers a mesmerizing vision of the affectations and the immorality of the denizens dwelling in Hollywood's dream factory.

Cronenberg’s reputation has been established by a uniquely personal body of work which includes films such as “Shivers,” “Rabid,” “The Brood,” “Scanners,” “Videodrome,” “The Fly,” “Dead Ringers,” “Naked Lunch” and “Crash.” Following a string of low-budget horror outings that earned him a cult following, Cronenberg avoided being pigeon-holed into the creature feature genre and forged a career as a master filmmaker known for fielding provocative, intense cinema. Much of his work reflects dark and disturbing themes and is inhabited by characters exhibiting various deformities and abnormalities.
