With the summer movie season starting earlier every year and the month of May just over a week away, it's time to turn your attention to the blockbuster spectacles of the warmer months.
Next Movie just put together the perfect primer for the summer movie season. Their list contains everything you need to know about the 30 most anticipated movies of May, June, July, and August of 2013, plus trailers for each of the flicks.
The list comes in a countdown format, so see which movies make the cut and which top the whole thing by clicking the link above!
The first clip from "Star Trek Into Darkness" debuted today over at AOL, and the bottom line is that even at a little over a minute long, the preview manages to be highly "Star Trek"-y in an awesome kind of way.
The basic set-up for the clip should be familiar to anyone who was able to catch the extended preview before "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" last year. Kirk and Bones just narrowly escaped that cliff jump you've seen one million times in various trailers and previews.
But that leaves Spock squarely situated in a highly active volcano and Kirk with one hell of a decision to make.

In the early days of Disney animated features, the creators would film somewhat elaborate versions of the image in real life for animators to use later. The image above is one of those tests next to the finished product.
Also, the bells ring out for "Game of Thrones" in today's Dailies!
Last week, Patton Oswalt presented his now famed proposal for "Star Wars: Episode VII" and he won the internet. As is traditional on the World Wide Web, the slate is wiped clean every week for a new successor to take over this crazy series of tubes.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have our winner.
If you have heard of the internet, you probably know that last week, a sharply worded internal email from a sorority found its way out into the world, and we were all introduced to the term "c--- punt."
This week, Michael Shannon (via Funny or Die) continued the long tradition of dramatic reads with a take on this new email sensation. There's one thing you need to know about Shannon. The man cannot half-ass a role, and he makes no exception for internet memes.

Apart from the stunning visuals presented in the previews for Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" adaptation, viewers have fawned over the film's stacked soundtrack, which includes original tracks from the likes of Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Florence Welch.
The song from controversial vocalist Lana Del Rey, "Young and Beautiful," however, was featured prominently in the third trailer and instantly struck a chord with people looking forward to the film.
A series of snippets, previews, and teasers of the movie's entire soundtrack have given us a little more for each of the songs, including "Young and Beautiful," but now the full song is available to stream online (via Vulture).
Listen to the song after the jump!
Tom Cruise has had a rough time at the box office in recent years. Aside from the "Mission: Impossible" franchise, the A-lister hasn't registered an opening weekend north of $30 million since 2005's "War of the Worlds."
That all changed with "Oblivion," which opened early overseas to strong ticket sales and debuted this weekend in the U.S. to $38 million. To date, the sci-fi actioner from "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinksi has banked $150 million.
But what did you think of "Oblivion"? The film, which also stars Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, and Andrea Riseborough, didn't exactly wow the critics, many of whom referenced a lack of originality.
Let us know your opinion in the poll after the jump!
According to a report from Just Jared, the producers of the Academy Awards want the much-maligned Seth MacFarlane to return for the next cermony.

This weekend, "Oblivion" starring Tom Cruise opens in theaters across the U.S. Some critics are giving the movie, which has otherwise been lukewarmly received, the benefit of the doubt for being the rare sci-fi movie that isn't based on a book or movie.
While there is something to be said about the lack of sci-fi movie in theaters these days, there are much better examples of the genre from the past 10 years that may have slipped under your radar. Check out a sample below.
David Chase, the famed creator of "The Sopranos," made his long-awaited feature film debut last year with "Not Fade Away," a semi-autobiographical tale of a garage band formed in 1960s New Jersey.
Since so much of the film depends on the members and characters within the band, this exclusive feature from the Blu-ray and DVD, which hits shelves on April 30, provides an interesting insight into the fabric of the story and the making of the film.
All of the stars, including "Boardwalk Empire's" Jack Huston played their own instruments for the film, so you'll be able to check out some of the behind-the-scenes skills and hear the stories how each of the cast members joined the band and the film.
"Not Fade Away" hits Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on April 30.
Every piece of promotional material for "Star Trek Into Darkness" has stressed how bad of a dude Benedict Cumberbatch's character, John Harrison, is. Everyone says he's really dangerous and can bring down Starfleet from within, but is he really that bad?
Yes. Yes, he is, if this latest feature from Yahoo! UK is to be believed. In the fashion of Michael Shannon's recent "Man of Steel" teaser, John Harrison explains his plans for James Tiberius Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise.
