Don't miss CNN's Summer Movie special this Saturday and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Even regular movie stars like Diane Keaton still like to kick back in a movie theater when the weather gets warmer - and with plenty of popcorn, while she's at it.
The actress told CNN that she's a stickler for heading to the cinema, rather than sitting and watching the newest release at home. "You take yourself out of the comfort zone where you can leave and come back, and you have to focus," the "Big Wedding" star said. (If you live in the L.A. area and want to have a Keaton sighting, among the many theaters she name-checked is the AMC Century City theater, "because I like the view. It's just fun to go to the movies."
Keaton's A-list contemporaries agree. With the industry's lucrative movie season getting underway this weekend, we asked several stars which summer flicks they're planning to see:
Katherine Heigl : "Man of Steel" (June 14); "Monsters University" (June 21)
"There's a lot actually, now I'm blanking, but I definitely want to see Superman! ... and 'Monsters University' for sure."
Jack Black: "This Is The End" (June 12)
Seth Rogen: "Kick-Ass 2" (August 16); "Elysium" (August 9)
"Kick Ass2 I'm pretty excited to see, Elysium, I'm excited to see. Iron Man I'm into. I was a comic book nerd growing up, and I like Robert Downey Jr. And Shane Black who wrote and directed it is one of my favorite writers of all time."
Krysten Ritter: "Star Trek Into Darkness" (Out now)
Joss Whedon: "Much Ado About Nothing" (June 7)
Don Cheadle: Undecided
Winona Ryder: "Star Trek Into Darkness (Out now)
Ray Liotta: "Star Trek Into Darkness" (Out now)
Michael Shannon: "The Great Gatsby" (Out now)
Elizabeth Banks: "The Great Gatsby" (Out now)
"I'm pretty much all about 'The Great Gatsby' right now. I'm a huge Baz Lurhmann fan. 'Romeo and Juliet' is actually one of the movies that made me want to be an actor. The whole cast I think is amazing and I'm really excited.
Chris Pine: "Man of Steel" (June 14)
Aubrey Plaza: "The Heat" (June 28)
