This summer's movie season is shaping up to be one of the biggest in recent years. With "The Hangover 2," "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2" and "Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon," there will be no shortage of laughs, magic or explosions for the next few months.

On May 26, the Wolfpack is back. This time the gang finds themselves in Thailand after Stu's "pre-wedding brunch" goes horribly wrong. The entire cast returns for the sequel, including fan favorites Ken Jeong and Mike Tyson. "The Hangover" was the breakout comedy of the summer back in 2009 and without much competition, I don't see why this sequel should be any different.

Shia LaBeouf and a bunch of CGI robots return July 1 for the third installment of Michael Bay's "Transformers" series. Bay and LaBeouf acknowledged that this effort would be much better than the disappointing second episode.

Arguably the most anticipated movie of the summer is "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2." On July 15, the closing installment of the 10-year series will have fans donning their robes and wands to stand in line one final time.

The first part of "Deathly Hallows" sparked life back into the series after a very disappointing "Half-Blood Prince" in 2009. Let's face it: you can't turn a 650-page book into a 2-hour movie without making it feel like a SportsCenter highlight reel.

With the "Deathly Hallows" book running more than 750 pages, the studio had no choice but to break the final film into two parts, or suffer the wrath of millions of angry Potter fans flinging Avada Kedavra curses their way.

Splitting the final book into two films was a win-win. Fans get a movie that is a more accurate portrayal of the book, and the studio gets to cash in on the Potter franchise one last time.
