C’mon, you can feel it, can’t you? Summer is...just...about...here. And with it comes the fun, from beaches to BBQs and, of course, the movies.
Let’s face it, there’s no better time to go to the movies than the summer (and not just because of the air conditioning). It’s the time that Hollywood saves their best and most exciting films, and this summer is no exception. You’ll find old friends like the Baywatch gang, Captain Jack Sparrow and the Pirates Of The Caribbean, and Caesar and the rest of the Planet Of The Apes. Scary stuff in the form of It Comes By Night (a semi-apocalyptic adventure), 47 Meters Down (This Is Us’ Mandy Moore, Claire Holt, and a great white shark — that’ll make you want to go swimming), and Amityville: The Awakening (taking place in the house that no one should ever buy).
Then there are superheroes and sci-fi epics: Wonder Woman (it’s about time!), the space-spanning Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets (there’s a mouthful) and Spider-Man: Homecoming, which teams Tom Holland’s Spidey (you may remember him from Captain America: Civil War) with Robert Downey, Jr.’s Iron Man; the latest Transformers film (these things just keep on coming), and the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower.
Looking for action? Check out Charlize Theron’s Atomic Blonde, plus the wild-looking action comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson. Or hang with the ladies in Scarlett Johansson’s Rough Night or Queen Latifah’s Girls Trip. Then bring it down a notch, grab the kids, and go see some family fare, including Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (based on the epic kids’ book series), Cars 3 (thank you, Pixar!), the return of Gru and the Minions in Despicable Me 3, and Animal Crackers.
So check out our guide to all of those films and so many more, and get your tickets now!
