Lots of good flicks hitting the cinema this summer. Here are the ones worth your time and money.
THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON - MAY 1
The sequel to one of the most amazing action films ever made? With witty writer/director Joss Whedon behind the whole thing? This can't be anything but great.
MAX MAX: FURY ROAD - MAY 15
Over the top. Violent. One long car chase. You get the idea. Oh yeah, and Tom Hardy stars.
TOMORROWLAND - MAY 22
Brad Bird, the dude behind all-time great flicks The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol is back with a family focused sci-fi adventure film starring George Clooney. Little is known about the project except House M.D. is also in it.
SPY - JUNE 5
Directed and written by the guy who made Bridesmaids, this is a secret agent spoof starring Melissa McCarthy and an impressive supporting cast led by Jude Law and Jason Statham.
JURASSIC WORLD - JUNE 12
This movie is about Chris Pratt teaming up with raptors to fight a giant mega dinosaur. Sounds like b-movie awesomeness.
ANT-MAN - JULY 17
Ant-Man might sound like the lamest and least powerful super-hero in the Marvel Universe, and that's probably true--somewhere Hawkeye is first pumping--but that doesn't mean he's not a hell of a lot of fun, especially when Paul Rudd is playing the dude.
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE — ROGUE NATION - JULY 31
These movies are always such a good time and Tom Cruise is a nut with the stunts. Can't wait for this one.
FANTASTIC FOUR - AUGUST 7
A great cast led by Kate Mara, Miles Teller, and Michael B. Jordan means A LOT has to go wrong for this to be bad. This family-focused super-hero flick should be an enjoyable time.
STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON - AUGUST 14
The story of how Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, MC Ren, and DJ Yella formed N.W.A. and took over the hip-hop scene. This gonna be amazing.
MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. - August 14
A lighthearted and action-packed spy thriller with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as spies who must team up to take down a mysterious criminal organization.
