What would a blockbuster be without a damsel in distress to save, or a femme fatale to fight? A whole lot less fabulous, that's what.
Throughout the world, the summer movies season is synonymous with chiseled male champions braving larger-than-life adventures. But judging by the crop of broad comedies and action extravaganzas being offered up in the coming months, it looks like the ladies may give their A-list counterparts of the opposite sex a run for their money.
Have a look at 20 starlets who are going to steal the cinematic spotlight.
'Tis the season for massive explosions and people running from them.
Summer movies are coming, and iconic superheroes will dominate as "Dark Knight Rises," "Avengers," and "The Amazing Spider-Man" duke it out for box office supremacy, while the sci-fi derby includes fresh takes on the "Alien" saga ("Prometheus") and Philip K. Dick ("Total Recall"), plus a return visit to MIB headquarters.

Last week, we got out our calendars and red sharpies and made plans for the first half of 2012. We were gonna do the whole year, but then we got hungry, were shocked to discover there were no more Rolos in the house, went out to get Rolos, then bumped into that guy we met at a thing a while back.
Guess we lost track of time.
But here we are, we still have our calendars -- and with a clear head we can talk about the Fanboy movies happening in mid-June on through the Holidays! Refresh yourself on Part 1, then continue to Part 2 of the 2012 preview below:
If the sight of Cobra banners being unfurled in front of the White House doesn't give you chills, nothing will.
Somewhat surprisingly, Jon M. Chu, the director of "Step Up 3D" and "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," looks to have brought a grungy edge to "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," a considerable (and welcome) shift from the empty, big-studio gloss of Stephen Sommers' original movie. There actually seems to be things at stake in this one, as well as a sense of danger and tragedy (Channing Tatum's absence from most of the trailer makes us wonder -- gulp! -- does Duke actually get killed?).

A locally hired crew member on the New Orleans set of "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation" was killed in an on-set accident on Tuesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Mike Huber was tearing down a set with a high-powered scissor lift when the machine tipped over and he sustained fatal injuries.
Paramount issued the following statement:
"Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with the Huber family at this time. The safety of our cast and crew is our top priority and the studio is fully cooperating with all investigating agencies as they examine the circumstances surrounding this unusual accident." Get More »
Shooting "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation" is well underway, and with director Jon M. Chu behind the camera (whose credentials include "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never"), we're not at all surprised that the cast seems to be having a grand ol' time shooting this one. The summer adventure flick stars Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, Adrianne Palacki as Lady Jaye and D.J. Cotrona as Flint -- and a recent behind-the-scenes interview, courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, gives us a little glimpse into this big action world.
Johnson, who appears to have put a lot of thought and consideration into his character's motivations, describes Roadblock as a "BAMF" (as in, "Bad A** Mother F******). In case that wasn't clear, he explains, "We kick all kinds of a**." Get More »
Update: The t's are crossed and the i's dotted. Bruce Willis is in, and the news comes from a pretty solid source -- The Rock.
Dwayne Johnson tweeted: “Welcome brother Bruce Willis to the cast of GI Joe! What an honor. #HeavyArtillery.”
That settles it. (via Cinema Blend)
Bruce Willis in a "G.I. Joe" movie? We say "Yo Joe!" to that!
The eternal action star is currently in talks to take on the role that takes the Joe team back to its origins in "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation" (formerly known as "G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes"), according the The Hollywood Reporter.
Willis would be playing General Joe Colton, the man who creates and assembles the ultimate freedom fighting force that will later be known as G.I. Joe.
And quite the force it is, as the team already includes Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, Channing Tatum, Ray Park, Elodie Yung, Joseph Mazzello, RZA and D.J. Cotrona.
Villainy will be provided by Ray Stevenson, Arnold Vosloo and Byung-hun Lee. Get More »
The filmmakers behind Paramount's fast-tracked sequel "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation" are entirely "Justified" in making their latest addition to the star-studded cast.
According to Variety, Walton Goggins has just parachuted his way into a role where he'll play Warden Nigel James, a new character, which is strange considering there's decades worth of toys, comic books, and cartoons to choose a wacky warden character from.
That's okay, though, we like new things, even in sequels. Get More »
