Looking at the new releases on track to hit theaters this summer, we think it’s safe to say that it’s blockbuster season. Here is our round-up of the movies we can’t wait to see this in the next few months, and some shopping suggestions to keep you entertained until the release date.
The latest installment in the series sees the addition of Oscar Issac to the already star-studded cast. He plays iconic Marvel super-villain Apocalypse, and we can’t wait to see if this movie can do him justice.
Independence Day: Resurgence
It’s been 20 years since the original and we can’t quite believe the release date for the sequel is finally here. We’re sad that Will Smith won’t be returning this time around, but Jeff Goldblum is, alongside new addition Liam Hemsworth. Quite frankly, if there are aliens and giant spaceship battles, we’re there.
So far, the movie for this summer that has gained the most media attention. Melissa McCrathy, Kirsten Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones make up an all-female line up in this remake. The story is essentially the same, but we can’t wait to see what a fresh new cast will bring to a cult classic.
Warcraft: The Beginning
The movie fans have been waiting for. The fantasy role-playing game is a cult hit and the filmmakers are no doubt hoping the movie will open the franchise up to a whole host of new fans.
The DC Comics installment everyone has been waiting for. Suicide Squad is about a group of super-villains on death row who undertake a secret mission from the government which will likely result in all of their deaths. Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie star in what is set to be the blockbuster of the summer.
