Summer is synonymous with carefree days, fun in the sun and much-anticipated cinema. After soaking up some rays or trying to avoid a summer shower, escape into the cold A/C of the theater, grab a bucket of buttery popcorn and let the following much-hyped movies sweep you away.
“The Incredibles 2”
An animated film from Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures is always a crowd- and family-favorite. The long-awaited sequel detailing the adventures of the lovable, crime fighting superhero family, “The Incredibles,” hits theaters in June. There’s a bit of a role reversal in “The Incredibles 2” as Helen (mom) heads to work and relinquishes caregiving duties to Bob (dad). As everyone adjusts to the changes in the family dynamics, they also have to contend with a new villain as well as the littlest Incredible, Jack-Jack, coming into his own powers.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story”
Another glimpse into moviegoers’ favorite galaxy far, far away hits theaters at the end of May with the release of “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” According to MovieInsider.com, this feature takes “place 10 years prior to Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977),” and audiences will get to see the adventures of Han and his trusted companion, Chewbacca.
“Avengers: Infinity War”
Although this super-powered adventure movie has more of a spring release date (May 4), “Avengers: Infinity Wars” is the ideal kickoff to a season of sensational cinema. Earth’s favorite protectors, the Avengers, reunite to fight the evil Thanos who is determined to destroy the planet. No doubt there will be incredible fight scenes, spectacular special effects and an intense story as these superheroes fight to save the world once again.
“Mission: Impossible – Fallout”
Summer just isn’t summer without witnessing Tom Cruise doing impossible things, and on July 27 audiences will get to see all he can do and more with the release of “Mission: Impossible – Fallout.” In this action-packed film, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) uses his extraordinary intelligence, courage and physicality, along with some help from trusted colleagues, to right a derailed mission.
In this installment of the Ocean’s saga, girls get to have all the fun. Debbie Ocean, played by Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock, has set her sights on a seemingly impossible, highly glamorous, star-studded setting for a heist: the Met Gala. But she can’t do it alone. “Ocean’s 8” features a female-led cast of characters determined to swindle a necklace, worth a staggering $150 million, from the neck of Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway). Audience members should prepare themselves for a fast-moving, thrilling time.
