The list of 62 titles below represents the major releases of the summer movie cavalcade, set to roar into the theaters in just weeks. The emphasis, as is the habit during the summer months, is escapism geared toward the younger crowd: James Bond dodges bullets and passes again, there's a host of films ("The Goonies" and "The Emerald Forest" among them) about mysterious children's adventures, a few fright films, a "Road Warrior" sequel and a heavy sampling of Spielbergesque science fiction.
For the adult audience, John Huston directs "Prizzi's Honor" with Jack Nichloson, and there are also two major Westerns this summer, a rare sight at any time of the year: "Pale Rider," Clint Eastwood's return to the saddle, and "Silverado," directed by Lawrence Kasdan.
Opening dates for the films are subject to change.
