Summer is coming, so it will be up to us teenagers to figure out what to do it. Some of course will choose to spend their time outside doing sports and other outside activities. But also available is the option of several inside activities in nice air conditioned buildings, one of the most often considered being going to the movie theater. Oh and what a time summer is to go to the movies, from big blockbusters to quiet dramas the summer line up is usually large and most often good. This is just a small compilation of movies coming to a theater near you this summer, to help you pick out the good, the bad and the ugly, and what of each you’d like to see.
First up on June 14th Men In Black: International drops in the US. This sequel to the series previously starring Will Smith takes place some time after Will’s original adventures, and shifts location from New York City to the other side of the world in London (among other locations) to face a new threat. MIB: International Stars Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth (who marvel fans will know as the Valkyrie and Thor from Thor Ragnarok) Also coming that month is Toy Story four. Releasing on the 21st Toy Story 4 is sequel to the beloved series created by Pixar animation, with the same returning cast and some new voices at that. And ending June off is Ophelia, a retelling of hamlet from the perspective of Ophelia, and Yesterday, which imagine a world were the Beatles never existed. Both movies release on the 28th of June.

Then 21 Bridges on, a cop drama set in New York City starring Chadwick Boseman and directed by the Russo brothers. And lastly the live action remake of the Lion King.
In august well there isn’t that much of note. Some possible indie darlings but the only big blockbuster is the fast and furious spin off Hobbs & Shaw starring Jason Statham and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Then to end off the summer just before school starts comes the anticipated sequel to the horror movie It, It; Chapter 2.
