Critically Inclined: Summer Movie Preview

  • 0

Summer at the box office was unofficially kicked off with Captain America: Civil War, which has pretty much everything you'd want from a superhero movie. I highly recommend it. But let's look ahead to a few of the many films about to hit theaters.

The Nice Guys: A buddy cop dramedy – nothing new here... at all. But it's hard to resist the team of Ryan Gosling and Russel Crowe. The Nice Guys looks like it could succeed in being both hilarious and action-packed.

Central Intelligence: Hey, why not another buddy cop flick? In Central Intelligence, Kevin hart was the coolest kid in high school, while Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was the loser. Yes, The Rock was picked on. The story is that The Rock ends up becoming a CIA agent, and due to Hollywood magic, needs Hart's help on a case.

Independence Day: Resurgence: Fans of the first Independence Day have been waiting 20 years for a sequel. Here it is, and it looks awesome. You have veterans Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum reprising their roles, with talented additions to the cast like Maika Monroe and Liam Hemsworth.

Ghostbusters: It has the most disliked trailer in YouTube history; clearly, some aren't pleased with how the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot looks. If it turns out great, it'll be one of the biggest stories of the summer. If it's a disaster... it'll still be one of the biggest stories of the summer.

Jason Bourne: What an aptly-titled movie. In Jason Bourne, Matt Damon is back, looking to revitalize the Bourne series after starring in the first three installments. Side note: wouldn't it be cool to be Matt Damon?

Suicide Squad: I had to squeeze another superhero movie in here... or, supervillian movie, rather. In the long-anticipated Suicide Squad, our favorite bad guys and gals are enlisted to do some good for the world, which is easier said than done when you're talking about the Joker, Harley Quinn and Killer Croc. Good luck with all that.

You also have the new Star Trek and X-Men installment... so many movies. Happy movie watching, everyone!
