SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Will the summer blockbuster film season just cater to teenage boys as usual? Probably, but if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find some hot movies coming out this summer for the rest of us.

JERSEY BOYS (R)

Based on the hit Broadway show, this is the story of Franki Valli and the Four Seasons. Expect gangsters, girls, good times and that remarkable music. Director Clint Eastwood traveled to the stage musicals and chose his best cast. As a fan of musicals, I’m hoping it’s as good as the Broadway Show, after all, big girls don’t cry. Co-stars Christopher Walken.

LOVE IS STRANGE (R)

This film asks the question: ‘Who knew Alfred Molina and John Lithgow would be so right as a loving couple together for 39 years?’ When they decide it is time to tie the knot officially, their lives become complicated and their relationship is given new challenges.

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT (PG- 13)

Woody Allen may create magic for us, but as usual, he has been keeping this movie under wraps. One thing we know— one of our best actors, Colin Firth, is unmasking a swindle with help from Emma Stone and Hamish Linklater. It all happens in the glamorous French Riviera.

THIRD PERSON (R)

Crash director Paul Haggis uses the same format of a big cast telling interlocking stories. This time its three stories are set in Rome, Paris and New York. Starring Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Kim Basinger, James Franco and Olivia Wilde.
