Now that Baywatch is officially out and June is just about to commence I’d say it’s officially summer. Although the weather will be lush and being outdoors will seem the most appealing it’s always nice to have a trip to the cinema. With that being said here are some of the films movie goers should check out this summer.
Wonder Woman (June 2)
There hasn’t been a good DC movie since The Dark Knight Rises but I have a very good feeling about Wonder Woman. It’s been a movie that has been 75 years in the making and I feel as though they have casted Wonder Woman perfectly with Gal Gadot. I think this film looks superb and it’s definitely one that fans of DC and Marvel should check out this summer.
The Mummy (June 9)
I didn’t expect the Mummy to be getting a remake anytime soon. But considering how good the Brendan Fraser films were, I’m sure the Tom Cruise remake will be well worth a watch. The trailer gives off more of a scary vibe than I was expecting so this may be one for fans of action and horror.
Cars 3 (June 16)
Owen Wilson returns as Lightning McQueen to prove his doubters wrong and to show he can keep up with a new generation of cars. The little kid in all of us will come out again this summer when Cars returns to the big screen.
All Eyez On Me (June 16)
This film is all about the life and struggles of Tupac Shakur. Let’s just hope he gets the biopic treatment he deserves. The trailer seems to give off the same vibes that Straight Outta Compton did and if its anything like that then we’re in for a treat.
The House (June 30)
For me any film with Will Ferrell is worth a watch. This film revolves around Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler as they set up an illegal casino in their house to pay for their daughter’s college fund. If the trailer is anything to go by then this looks like it could be a damn good comedy.
Spider-Man Homecoming (July 7)
Another Spider-Man reboot! Luckily it looks as though we won’t have to sit through the origin story of Peter Parker again. Tom Holland looks great as Peter Parker and he could have a very bright future as Spider-Man. We’re also getting treated to a villain we’ve yet to see on the big screen, Vulture, who is played by Michael Keaton. It seems as though Marvel has mixed good action with good comedy for this one, I can’t wait.
War For The Planet Of The Apes (July 14)
In the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. This film series is growing stronger and stronger so hopefully this one lives up to expectations.
Girl’s Trip (July 21)
To me this isn’t a chick flick at all, it looks like a comedy we can all get behind. The film is centred around four college friends reuniting for a weekend of mischief, fun and most importantly laughs. Even the trailer had me in stitches.
Dunkirk (July 21)
A lot of the pre release hype will revolve around Harry Styles’ on screen debut, something I’m sure Christopher Nolan knew. The perfect acting duo of Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy reunite for this one. One can only hope Nolan’s directing skills will make this an absolute classic. The film follows the 1940 World War II evacuation of Dunkirk. The trailers show the film will take place from land, sea and sky, so the film may be as informative as it is entertaining. It looks like a must see.
Emoji Movie (July 28)
This is one for the kids. The concept of the Emoji Movie actually seems quite interesting and has shades of Inside Out about it. You’ll recognise some familiar voices like Anna Faris, James Corden and Sir Patrick Stewart. This could be your kids new favourite film this summer and is worth taking the trip to your local cinema for.
The Dark Tower (Aug 4)
This film is the first of a trilogy based on Stephen King’s The Dark Tower novels. The film stars Idris Elba as The Last Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as his nemesis The Man in Black. I believe this film will be so good I even wrote an article on 5 reasons why people should check it out! I just hope the film lives up to the amazement of the books.
Detroit (Aug 4)
This film is set around Algiers Motel incident during the 1967 Detroit riots. The film features some of the best upcoming actors in John Boyega and Will Poulter. The looks to be a tense thriller which is sure to be be shocking. Judging from this trailer, the film will be immense.
Annabelle Creation (Aug 11)
This could end up being a contender for the scariest movie of the year. Expect plenty of jump scares in this one. This is a prequel to the first Annabelle movie and it is the fourth movie in the Conjuring series. This is definitely one for fans of horror.
