Time just keeps slipping away. It seems like just last week we were looking ahead to the promising pre-summer releases, and now in about a month’s time the summer movie season is set to kick into high-gear with the new “Pirates” movie. I suppose it’s just as well that these past couple months have passed in a blur, because frankly there wasn’t too much worth getting excited about. Save for “Rango,” I never encountered anything truly worthwhile — and last week’s “Sucker Punch” provided one of the most physically painful and soul-crushing movie experiences I’m ever likely to have. So yeah, I’m ready to look ahead to greener pastures. In that spirit, here are 15 upcoming movies (compared to the usual 10) that I’m counting on to alleviate the cinematic doldrums for the foreseeable future. Gotta look on the sunny side.

“Hobo with a Shotgun” (April 29, limited) — With such a catchy and delightfully reductive title, this exploitation ode — inspired by a fake trailer that hit the Internet a couple years back — looks to be this year’s “Snakes on a Plane.” The presence of Rutger Hauer as the shotgun-wielding hobo only sweetens the deal.
