With Summer steadily setting into place for many with school finishing and some finally getting their break from work I’m here to bring you five Summer movies that look interesting and fun.
5. Sausage Party
This is the strangest movie on the list yet one I’m extremely excited to see although this film could be revolutionary, opening new doors for comedic animations aimed at an older audience, or it will be damn right awful. This is another comedy which Seth Rogan has created the story for and Seth Rogan’s comedies are normally judged as good or really bad but I don’t think this will put many off due to the wacky and unique idea behind the film. As well as this it has a great cast with James Franco, Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig and more. So if you’re looking for a wacky and strange film to laugh at this is the perfect film for you.
4. Jason Bourne
Now I’m not a huge fan of the Bourne series but everyone loves a good spy thriller and nobody particularly enjoyed Jeremy Renner’s take on Jason Bourne is the Bourne Legacy so just the return of Matt Damon is enough to pull you in to watch this movie. As well as the stunts and set pieces in the film it is bound to be a fun and action-packed film.
3. The Secret Life of Pets
From Illumination Entertainment is another cute and funny animation based on pets. This film has intrigued me since the first trailer with the entertaining trailers of dancing dogs and fat cats. Illumination Entertainment are best known for Despicable Me and have very good animations which is why I’m excited to see how this film turns out although it is aimed at a young audience yet it has stars such as Kevin Hart (who is known for big roles in R rated comedies) as one of the main characters. This is a family friendly film and will contain fun for all the family.
2. Star Trek Beyond
This is a film I am especially excited for with the last two being fantastic as well as being directed by J.J. Abrams who did a marvelous job but this Star Trek has been directed by Justin Lin. I am so excited for it to see how Lin has made Beyond different to how J.J. Abrams made the first two Star Trek films in the trilogy. The cast is also amazing with Chris Pine, Idris Elba, Simon Pegg and more. If you’re a fan of Star Trek or just want to see an action film set in space then this is perfect for you.
1. Suicide Squad
After Batman vs Superman I have been anticipating this film with the small glimpse of hope that David Ayer can fix Zack Synders poor attempt on the road to the Justice League. I am most excited for Jared Leto’s performance as the Joker after seeing his psychotic few seconds from the first trailers released for this film. I have one problem with this film and that is the age rating it has been given (pg-13). I would expect a film based around these characters to be at least R rated which could make the film weak in its deliverance to the comic book fans. I think this may be one of the best films of the Summer if the pg-13 rating doesn’t pull it down so if you’re looking for a dark but action filled super-villain film this is what you’ve been waiting for.
