Mother’s Day (April 29)- Released this past weekend, Mother’s Day is packed with stars: Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Jason Sudekis. Although some star-filled films aren’t great, I would definitely run out to a theatre to see this film especially because chick-flicks are my guilty pleasure. I hate myself for loving them, but here I am, still loving them.
Captain America: Civil War (May 6)- I’m going to be honest, the Captain America franchise needs to stop putting out movies, but I still watch each one once they’re released to HBO because of one factor: Chris Evans. Had the producers picked any other actor, I would just roll my eyes every time a new movie was released, but as it is, I roll my eyes and then invest my time to watch Chris Evans fight crime as an American hero.
Alice Through the Looking Glass (May 27)- This film is a continuation of the first live-action Alice movie starring the likes of Johnny Depp (Hatter), Helena Bonham Carter (Red Queen), Anne Hathaway (White Queen) and Mia Wasikowska (Alice). I think that Tim Burton did a great job in the first film creating a magical and almost drug-induced atmosphere for one of the most eerie children stories on the planet.
Finding Dory (June 17)- You have to understand that I grew up with Finding Nemo, reciting lines like “you touched the butt (boat)!” or “aww, you made me ink.” So with that in mind, I’ll probably have to find an excuse to see this sequel just because it’s my childhood. Isn’t it ironic that it comes out the summer before I’m headed off to college?
Secret Life of Pets (July 8)- Another children’s movie (obviously I can’t accept that I’m eighteen at this point), this animation looks super cute, so again, I’m going to need an excuse to head into a G-rated film. Maybe it’s just my ridiculous love of dogs talking, but I found the characters endearing and comical in the previews, so it looks like I’m finding a child to take out to the movies.
What films are you looking forward to this summer, or even later this fall? Happy kommenting :)
