Summer movie heroes
Image 9 of 12
"WALL*E" / "Wanted"( Pixar / Universal )
Films: "WALL*E" / "Wanted" (June 27)
Hero(es): Wall*E the robot / Wes, Fox, and other members of the Fraternity
Powers: Robotic comedy chops / Nearly inhuman flexibility and inerring accuracy with weapons, general disregard of physics
Movies: Pitting a cute robot against deadly assassins doesn't seem right, but it's Hollywood. All's fair. Pixar's "WALL*E" (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) is an animated adventure that seems to have taken audiences along for a ride. And "Wanted," a graphically graphic novel, stars James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie as reality-bending assassins. A big weekend matchup, but with kids forcing family outings, Wall*E might have the edge.
