cowboys and aliens super bowl trailer The Ultimate 2011 Summer Movie Trailer

The buzz surrounding comic book superhero movies has never been greater as the summer of 2011 approaches. With four comic book movies releasing this summer and a large slate of other potential blockbusters, this slow year may explode with huge hits in the coming months.

To get you true fans pumped for another summer at the movies, we’ve put together a trailer mashup showcasing the best of what’s to come.

There are a few potential duds on the schedule this summer, but there are even more tentpoles from major studios; our mashup includes four superhero films and seven sequels. The major studio battle for summer supremacy seems to be between Paramount (Thor, Captain America) and Warner Bros. (Green Lantern, Harry Potter).

Hopefully this trailer gets you in the mood for this summer’s exciting round-up of movies that kicks off at the tail-end of April. Traditionally, the summer movie schedule doesn’t start until the first week of May, but we let Fast Five slide in, even though it hits theaters in the last days of April – it just has summer blockbuster written all over it.

Check out the 2011 summer movie mashup below. SIDE NOTE: This trailer should be played loud. icon wink The Ultimate 2011 Summer Movie Trailer

You may remember last year’s Ultimate Summer Movie Trailer, but we’ve been up to quite a lot on the mashup/supercut front since then. The surprise hit Toy Story 3: Inception trailer has given the Screen Rant YouTube account its first multi-million-views video and more recently a compilation of Natalie Portman shedding tears on screen surpassed 250,000 views. As the Screen Rant YouTube account approaches 5 million views, we hope this will be the one that gets us there. Tell everybody you know and share it around the Internet – and thanks for being faithful fans of the site!

It’s an exciting collection of movies, but obviously only a select few will rake in the big bucks. Which do you think will do the best at the box office? Will it be a comic book tentpole or a sequel to an established movie franchise? Share your thoughts on the trailer and the 2011 summer movies in the comments section below.

  2. My film teacher actually showed our class the Toy Story 3 Inception Trailer in class a few weeks back and I was like, I’ve been reading the website that made that for over a year now! haha

  3. this just reminds me of how much money i must spend this summer lolol. great job guys.

  4. Awesome job guys, that was great. Nice timing in some of the clip sequencing too.

  5. That stunt by Vin Diesel and Paul Walker is SICK.

    Awesome mash-up.

  6. Nice mash up!

  7. can you say erection lol

  8. That was very cool. I Loved the “down” part towards the end where all the characters are looking with shock or despair. Very well done indeed!

    that was all kinds of Awesome!!!!

  9. Another great achievemnet in editing.

    Side Note: Everytime I see Paul Walker and Vin Diesel on any screen I feel a little sick inside knowing that, somehow, the lifeforce inside me has been tainted and shortened.

  10. Wow that was epic! I love these mash-ups! Made me wanna see every movie on here(except for Cars 2 and Fast Five…yeesh!)

  11. Great Job!

    Loved it :)

    • Rickster had a heart attack that the ending was Deathly Hallows Part 2 lol

  12. Our man Mike Eisenberg does very nice work. :-D


    • Yep, really good job.

  13. so many movies that i wanna see..

  14. Very fun…. but only one Pirates clip?!?! That’s a little sad. At least there was some quality GL in there :-)

  15. This was fantastic! Great job Mike!

  16. Great work! This summer is gonna be busy as far as movies go!

  17. Hey ive been looking on this site for awhile now but this is my first time commenting. That was an amazing mash up. My most anticipated films this summer are The Hangover Part II, X-Men: First Class and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Keep up the good work Mike.

  18. oh screen rant. how i love your ability to relate to me on all things super hero/scifi

  19. Well there are 9 movies I want to see on the list, the others I could take or leave or will never spend my money on (Michael Bay).

  20. Mike, I’ll say this, you just got me pretty amped up about movies I was having ill feelings about seeing, nice job sir :)

  21. I’m gonna spend so much damn money. I enjoyed the Harry Potter ending with the X-Men voice-over. I haven’t been excited for summer movies like this in a few years.

  22. interested in 7 of those, only one i will go see in theaters is super 8, maybe cowboys and aliens.

  23. My guess for the top films this summer at the box office is Harry Potter, Transformers 3, Cars 2, Pirates 4, Kung Fu Panda 2 and Hangover 2

  24. We’re about to have two of the best summers in a very long time.

  25. Too bad Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes couldn’t have been in that :(

  26. You forgot to include DYLAN DOG: DEAD OF NIGHT, which opens April 29.

    • Nope, we didn’t.



  27. Which film is the sentinel like creature from ?
