Sony/Columbia has sent around a press release concerning some additions to their Summer 2012 releases. In case you don't feel like reading the press release here are the dates as follows: I HATE YOU, DAD (6/22), HERE COMES THE BOOM (7/27) and TOTAL RECALL (8/3). Below you can scope out more details about each film. I've sectioned them off so you can read about whichever film you fancy.

"Summer 2012 is heating up for moviegoers as Columbia Pictures adds three highly anticipated films to its summer slate, it was announced today by Jeff Blake, chairman, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures. Joining the strong summer line-up that already includes Men in Black™ 3 in 3D (May 25) and The Amazing Spider-Man™ in 3D (July 3), the studio will release I Hate You, Dad, starring Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg, on June 22, Here Comes the Boom, starring Kevin James, on July 27, and a re-imagining of Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell, on August 3."

"Commenting on the announcement, Blake said, “We couldn’t be more excited about the slate of movies that Amy Pascal, Michael Lynton, Doug Belgrad and our incredible production team and filmmakers are delivering for summer 2012. Not only do we have two of our most exciting franchises back in theaters with Men in Black 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man, but the three movies we added to the slate today round out a fantastic schedule. We love comedy in the summer and you can’t ask for better stars than Adam Sandler and Kevin James. Total Recall has us excited not only because of its incredible pedigree – we love the original story and the first film – but we think this new project will really hit home with a new generation of moviegoers.”

Info on I HATE YOU, DAD:

"I Hate You, Dad centers on a father (Sandler) who moves in on the eve of his son’s (Samberg) wedding and promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be. Adam Sandler, Jack Giarraputo and Heather Parry are producing, Barry Bernardi serves as executive producer, with the screenplay by David Caspe and David Wain & Ken Marino."

Info on HERE COMES THE BOOM:

"In the comedy Here Comes the Boom, Kevin James stars as a high school biology teacher who moonlights as a mixed-martial arts fighter in an effort to raise money to save the school’s music program. Director Frank Coraci, who recently directed James in Zookeeper, which Columbia and MGM are co-financing and will be released this summer, re-teams with the star. Here Comes the Boom is produced by Todd Garner and Kevin James. Executive producers are Jeff Sussman, Marty Ewing and Sean Robbins. The screenplay is written by Allan Loeb & Kevin James."

Info on TOTAL RECALL:

"Total Recall is a new, contemporized reimagining of the science fiction saga. The film will be directed by Len Wiseman and produced by Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe, with Ric Kidney on-board as executive producer. The short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick served as the source for the 1990 Motion Picture screen story by Ronald Shusett & Dan O’Bannon and Jon Povill and screenplay by Ronald Shusett & Dan O’Bannon and Gary Goldman, with the updated screenplay being written by Kurt Wimmer and Mark Bomback and James Vanderbilt."

Extra Tidbit: The first time I saw Andy Samberg I automatically thought, "Is this the new Adam Sandler?"
