This coming Monday, May 30th is Memorial Day. Memorial Day is such an excellent holiday for a whole bunch of reasons. First and foremost, Memorial Day is an American holiday set aside specifically to honor those men and women who died in service of their country while in the U.S. Armed Forces. Memorial Day is also the unofficial holiday that begins the summer season. Around these parts, one of our favorite things about summer is the release of all those big time summer movies. Doesn’t it seem that the very best of best films come out in the summer? Yes, we agree. Here are some of the films we are most excited about--many of these are in movie theaters NOW!
Batman V. Superman-This film came out in March--have you seen it yet? Batman V. Superman brings together a few of the DC Comics Universe heavy hitters in the sequel to Man of Steel. In addition to Superman, this film will reintroduce fans to Batman with a long overdue welcome to a rebooted Wonder Woman!
The Jungle Book-The Jungle Book is Disney’s live-action film based on the beloved children’s stories of Rudyard Kipling and the classic animated film of the same name.
Captain America: Civil War-Marvel Comics has some in-fighting of their own and in this big summer movie, Captain America goes toe to toe with Iron Man!
Angry Birds-So what are these cute little birds so angry about anyway? This whimsical animated adventure comedy promises to answer that question and many others inspired by one of the world’s most popular video games. There's also an entire line of Angry Birds costumes too!.
Alice Through the Looking Glass-In the sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 “Alice in Wonderland”, much of the original cast reunites as Alice returns to Wonderland and tries to help The Mad Hatter, who is apparently behaving much crazier than usual. The movie trailer looks awesome!
X-Men: Apocalypse-This film is the last in the trilogy of X-Men movies that began with the immensely popular, X-Men: First Class. In this latest installment, an ancient mutant, “Apocalypse” has come to life and now is a threat to all humanity. It’s time for the X-Men to be called into action!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2-If the last Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie left you wanting more--this could be your summer. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is the sequel to the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film and will be in theaters on June 3, 2016.
Warcraft-Scheduled to be in theaters June 10, this long-awaited film based on the popular video game Warcraft will chronicle the origin of the battles between the humans and the Orcs.
Independence Day: Resurgence-Twenty years after the first alien attack, the earth must face a new extraterrestrial threat that is far more advanced than the planet is prepared to combat.
Ghostbusters-Who you gonna call? When ghosts invade the city of Manhattan, a diverse team of hilarious ghost tacklers is mostly unafraid to take them on and eradicate the city of its new inhabitants.
Star Trek: Beyond-Star Trek: Beyond is set to be released on July 22 and will be the thirteenth film that is part of the Star Trek movie franchise. When aliens destroy the USS Enterprise, it leaves the ship’s crew stranded on an obscure planet.
