Summer Movie Season Begins

The summer movies season is about to begin, officially kicking off on 5/02 with the latest comic book-to-movie franchise, Iron Man, starring Robert Downey, Jr. Variety devotes a whole section of their Web site to it. Check out the trailers, even if you think you’re not a comic hero (in this case, anti-hero) fan.

Two weeks later, the second Narnia movie hits the screen. HarperCollins has a dizzying number of tie-ins. We parse them for you, under Upcoming Books to Movies.

We’ve updated the “Books to Movies” section with links to all available trailers for upcoming movies.

For a full summer movies preview, check out the Boston Globe‘s listing (free registration required to view it).

Many tie-ins are available for Iron Man. Del Rey is publishing two tie-in paperbacks:
