Summer is quickly approaching, and there is so much to do in so little time. Although summer is warm and full of sun and beach trips, there are always those days where it’s just too hot to do anything, and those rainy days. Luckily, there are many awesome movies being released during our long break, some of which are new and some are sequels. Here are a few must see summer movies (in chronological order):
Captain America: Civil War, May 6
This Marvel movie is one of the most highly anticipated movies this summer. With a civil war happening between favorite characters, viewers are forced to pick a side. This action-packed superhero movie is film to be the biggest in the box office this summer and stand out amongst all the other great movies.
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, May 20
The first “Neighbors” was a hilarious comedy, and now with Seth Rogen and Zac Efron returning for a sequel, it’s sure to be big amongst teens and young adults. In the first movie, a fraternity were the troublemakers, but now the tables have turned and it’s the sorority’s turn to get rowdy.
Me Before You, June 3
Unlike some of the other summer movies this one is much more lighter, a love story. The movie is based on the bestselling novel by Jojo Moyes, and will be an emotional one for sure, if the trailer is telling of the film.
Finding Dory, June 17
We all know who she is and to “just keep swimming”. Dory finally got her own movie and is ready to take on the big ocean again, this time in search of the family who she has been looking for since 2003, but got sidetracked with Marlin and Nemo. After waiting thirteen years, Ellen DeGeneres and Finding Nemo fans finally get a sequel.
Independence Day: Resurgence, June 24
This “Independence Day” takes place twenty years after the first alien invasion, and new and old heroes arise to save the day. Because the first film was so good, the anticipation for this one is pretty high and the projected to be a big box office hit this summer, and is highly recommended.
The Legend of Tarzan, July 1
Recently, Disney has announced that they will be making live-action versions of some of their most popular animations. “The Jungle Book” recently came out and Tarzan is not far behind. This version of Tarzan is a bit different than the classic story we all know and love, with Tarzan and Jane married, and betrayal forcing Tarzan to reclaim what was taken.
Suicide Squad, August 15
“Suicide Squad” is a movie about DC Comic super villains who team up together to take on an impossible mission. In it, the villains turn into what some call “dysfunctional heroes,” because they are the worst of the worst. In the released trailers, the movie looks very creepy and violent, although rated PG-13 to fit with other DC Comic movies.
Be sure to check out these films when they hit theaters this summer!
