It’s officially Summer – that means there will be tons of blockbuster movies to watch out for this month. Whether you’re a big fan of epic flicks, drama, superhero films, rom-coms or animated movies, theaters have a little something for you.
Here are 4 movies to watch out for this month:
1. Wonder Woman
You’ve probably hit the theaters and saw just how empowering and beautifully-made this movie was.
In this latest DC Comics-turned-film installment, Gal Gadot plays Diana, the princess of the Amazons who turned into a warrior out to put a stop to Aries, the god of war.
“When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny,” according to IMDB.
2. It Comes At Night
If you love psychological drama, here’s something to get excited about – It Comes At Night is a new project by Trey Edward Shults, critically-acclaimed director of Krishna (2015).
Its synopsis reads, “Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, a man has established a tenuous domestic order with his wife and son, but this will soon be put to test when a desperate young family arrives seeking refuge.
3. The Beguiled
One word to convince you to watch this film: Cannes. Director Sophia Coppola is the second woman in Cannes Film Festival history to ever win the Best Director prize for her work in this feature film.
Set in the Civil War, The Beguiled tells the story of “young women who have been sheltered from the outside world” where they take in a Union soldier.
“Soon, the house is taken over with sexual tension, rivalries and an unexpected turn of events,” IMDB’s website read.
4. Rough Night
Could this be the all-female movie to topple over Bridesmaids? This comedy flick that kinda reminds us of The Hang Over features some of the funniest female comedians today like Kate McKinnon and Jillian Bell.
Synopsis: “A bachelorette party gets progressively “more out of control for four reunited college pals when their drug-fueled good time suddenly includes a dead male stripper.”
5. The Little Hours
Up for a raunchy brand of comedy? James Franco, Alison Brie and Aubrey Plaza team up for The Little Hours, which takes a comical (if not offensive) view of life within a nun convent.
Fandango Synopsis: “The daily squabbles of a quarrelsome trio of medieval nuns (Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate Miccuci) are interrupted when a strapping young man (Dave Franco) finds refuge at their convent. The restless nuns conspire to seduce him, and the young man, feigning deafness, overhears their plans. Written and directed by Jeff Baena.”
