25 Summer Movies We’re Dying to See, From ‘Alien: Covenant’ to ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ (Photos) 1 / 1 Back to Gallery
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”
Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and scene stealer Baby Groot picked up right where they left off in this sequel to the 2014 Marvel movie.
“Wonder Woman”
It only took 75 years, but after making a huge splash in last year’s “Batman v Superman,” DC Comics Amazonian Superheroine finally headlines her own superhero movie this summer. Starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins.
“The Mummy”
Tom Cruise headlines in this updated take on the classic Universal monster. The remake tells us the story of an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella) “whose destiny was unjustly taken from her.” She is then “awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.”
“Baby Driver” | Things to Do and New Flicks: Sign in for newsletters
“Baby Driver” has moved up from an August 11th release date, and will now compete against some stiff competition by coming out on June 28th. From director Edgar Wright, the film revolves around a young but talented getaway driver named Baby, played by Ansel Elgort.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming”
After being introduced as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe last year in “Captain America: Civil War,” Tom Holland returns as the web crawler in his stand alone film to face off against Michael Keaton’s villainous Vulture. Robert Downey Jr co-stars as Iron Man.
“Atomic Blonde”
Charlize Theron’s bisexual spy thriller from “Deadpool 2” director David Leitch follows MI6’s most lethal assassin through a ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors. Theron’s Agent Lorraine Broughton is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery.
CinemaCon attendees got to see some extended footage of the comedy starring Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer, who play mother and daughter who go on a vacation together and get involved in some unexpected criminal activity. It looks hilarious, and the movie marks Hawn’s return to the big screen.
“Alien: Covenant”
Fans of the “Alien” franchise have been looking forward to the new film which welcomes back Michael Fassbender as both Walter/David, as well as new cast members Danny McBride, Katherine Waterston, James Franco and Demian Bichir.
Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and Priyanka Chopra star in this comedic feature film take on the iconic TV series. The trailers we’ve seen so far just make fun of Efron’s character, and the whole movie is basically just eye candy for men and women alike.
“All Eyez On Me”
The Tupac Shakur biopic has excited fans since the announcement of the project, and further casting notices including that of Kat Graham and Danai Gurira have enticed fans further to look forward to its release on June 16.
“Rough Night”
The first trailer for the film previously titled “Rock That Body” was full of sex, drugs and yes — murder. It’s no wonder then that the comedy starring Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon and Zoe Kravitz is on our most anticipated summer movies list.
“Despicable Me 3”
Steve Carell plays not one but TWO characters in this movie — Gru and Dru. And the two brothers hilariously team up for one last heist, and of course, the minions are BACK!
“War for the Planet of the Apes”
The third movie in the reboot series, “War of the Planet of the Apes” has Matt Reeves, aka the director of “The Batman,” helming the project. And Woody Harrelson is the film’s main antagonist, which combined with the franchise’s epic CGI apes, should make for a solid sci-fi summer film.
CinemaCon attendees also saw footage of Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” which stars Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and Harry Styles. Nolan fans and Styles fans are sure to flock to the theaters to see this WWII drama.
“Girls Trip”
Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah reunite 20 years after “Set It Off” along with Regina Hall. The ladies go on a girls trip to New Orleans, which obviously turns wild.
“The Dark Tower”
CinemaCon goers got to see some first footage of the movie based on the epic literary series by Stephen King, and it did not disappoint. Glimpses of a highly-stylized, scorched-earth epic was screened.
“Annabelle: Creation”
The follow up to 2014’s “Annabelle,” David F. Sandberg directs (while James Wan produces) the film which follows a couple who just lost their daughter — but as soon as they invite a nun and some orphans into their home, some unexplained things begin to happen.
“Hitman’s Bodyguard”
Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson make a great duo in this hilarious action comedy. And Salma Hayek adds another layer of laughs to the movie, which follows a bodyguard (Reynolds) who must get one of the biggest hitman’s in the world to The Hague. Obviously, the two have history.
“Transformers: The Last Knight”
Michael Bay returns for his final “Transformers” movie and intends to go out with quite a bang – literally. Mark Wahlberg also returns and Sir Anthony Hopkins star in the latest installment which sees humanity at war with the Transformers while Optimus Prime is gone.
“The Beguiled”
Sofia Coppola’s drama follows a girls’ school in Virginia which takes in a wounded soldier. Soon, sexual tension and jealousy takes over the school. It stars Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Colin Farrell.
July 7: “A Ghost Story”
Hot off his Oscar win for “Manchester by the Sea,” Casey Affleck stars in “A Ghost Story” alongside talented actress Rooney Mara, the film follows Affleck’s white-sheeted ghost who unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the woman he loves slowly slip away.
July 7: “Step”
Buzzy Sundance doc “Step” follows a girls’ senior-year high school step team in the inner city of Baltimore, Maryland as they strive to become the first in their families to go to college.
