Summer Entertainment: Must-See Movies
Our next series for you folks is on summer entertainment essentials! I’m going to start you off with some of the must-see movies coming out between June 15 and the start of school, so you can fill your summer with movie nights (or days--whatever floats your boat)!
- Incredibles 2 – June 15
I mean, obviously. Anyone who grew up on the Incredibles can’t pass this one up! Honestly, I think I liked this better than the original.
- Tag – June 15
This one looks like a great summer comedy! It’s got an awesome cast (our boy Jeremy Renner from the Avengers and our girl Rashida Jones from Parks and Rec!), and it’s about a group of friends who organize a no-holds-barred game of tag which lasts over the course of an entire month.
- Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – June 22
More dinosaurs, more Chris Pratt, more Jeff Goldblum? What more could you want?!
- Ant-Man and the Wasp – July 6
I love the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but if I’m being honest, it’s starting to feel like a little too much a little too fast, you know? That said, I love me a Paul Rudd film. And Evangeline Lily (from The Hobbit) will be The Wasp!
- Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again—July 20
Because, honestly, if you don’t love ABBA, you’re lying.
- Christopher Robin – August 3
This movie looks sad and adorable and uplifting all at the same time; I’m really excited for this one! Also—and I know a lot of these movies are because I’m excited about the cast, please forgive me—I can’t pass up anything with Ewan McGregor in it.
- The Spy Who Dumped Me—August 3
Honestly, I’m a little biased because I have a major crush on Kate McKinnon. The Spy Who Dumped Me looks like a fun mix of comedy and action.
- Crazy Rich Asians—August 15
Another comedy option, because summer is the perfect season for comedies and romances. And it’s based on a book!
- Slender Man – August 24
In case you’re looking for a little horror to balance out all those fun summer releases.
Obviously, I haven’t seen most of these yet, so I apologize in advance if any of them are duds!
What do you think of this list? Did I miss any big movies you want to see?
