Summer doesn’t officially start until the middle of June, but we all know that Hollywood plays by its own rules. Every year, the summer movie season seems to start earlier and earlier and this year is no exception. Iron Man 2 kicked it off this weekend, raking in gazillions of dollars and charming critics and run-of-the-mill moviegoers alike. Robert Rodriguez’s Machete closes it out on September 3 with a star-studded tribute to the b-film movie genre. What’s in the middle?

It’s rare that we see Gael Garcia Bernal phone it in, but he gladly does so in Letters to Juliet, the new cornball romantic tale from Summit Entertainment. But even if the film is no challenge for an actor of Garcia Bernal’s caliber, you can’t really stay mad at him. In the end, all Letters to Juliet wants you to do is revert back to your teenage self and believe, for all of its 105 minutes, that love of the Shakespearean variety does indeed exist (and in order to find it, you’ve got to go to Verona, Italy).

Proving (as if we needed proof) that the appetite for 3-D flicks is pretty much bottomless at this point, How to Train Your Dragon captured most of the box office dollars last weekend, followed closely by Alice in Wonderland. Coming in at #1, Dragon, the animated Dreamworks kid flick featuring a great story, bravura computer animation and America Ferrera voicing the lead female character, made a solid $43.3 million.

It looks like our boy Gael Garcia Bernal may be embroiled in some seriously scandalous baby mama drama. Tv y Novelas is reporting that Bernal, 31, is not only splitting from his on-again, off-again girlfriend Dolores Fonzi, 31, but also demanding a DNA test to find out whether or not the couple's baby, Lazaro (born Jan. 8, 2009), is actually his.

Gael García Bernal, who has been in NYC filming Letters to Juliet with Vanessa Redgrave for the last few weeks, was recently asked about the drug wars in Mexico by a NY Daily News reporter. "Drugs
are illegal—therefore, there's a fight," he said. "I hope drugs become legalized in Mexico. If drugs were legal, there would be nothing to fight about."

Rudo y Cursi premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last night and Carlos Cuaron's directorial debut is definitely worth the hype. Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal come together for the first time since Y Tu Mama Tambien to star in this film about soccer, brotherhood and fate. In the movie, Bernal and Luna get to play against cast with Luna playing the role of rough and ready Rudo, and Bernal playing the role of sweetly naive Cursi.

As this trailer for Jim Jarmusch's new movie, The Limits of Control (out May 22), so aptly demonstrates, a scraggly-haired Gael García Bernal is better than no Gael at all. The Mexican actor plays a philosopher-cowboy type in the legendary indie director's new film, which was shot in Almería, Sevilla and Madrid, Spain and co-stars Jarmusch regulars Bill Murray and Isaach De Bankolé, Spanish actress Paz de la Huerta and Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton
