Summer! Is! Almost! Here! The weather is *finally* starting to warm up (#BLESS), and although spring definitely deserves its own love and appreciation, it’s hard not to get excited for sunny days lounging by the pool and warm nights drinking on rooftops. Or when it’s just way too f*cking hot outside, spending an afternoon in the cool A/C of a movie theater. And luckily, there are a ton of new films coming out this season to watch—so get excited.
1. Dark Phoenix
Already missing Sansa Stark? Not to worry: Sophie Turner returns less than three weeks after the Game of Thrones finale to star as the lead in Marvel’s newest X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix. Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender are just a few of her A-list co-stars.
2. Late Night
Two QUEENS (Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling) teamed up for this comedy about a female late-night host (Emma) who enlists a new writer (Mindy) to help her revamp the talk show. Mindy wrote the screenplay herself, so you know it’s going to be hilarious.
3. The Secret Life of Pets 2
The Secret Life of Pets is truly one of the most adorable animated movies out there, and now we’re getting a SEQUEL! Max, Chloe, Gidget, and the gang will return June 7, and I can’t wait to see what shenanigans they get up to.
4. Men in Black: International
Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth dressed in suits and ties, shooting things and being badass? Um, YES PLEASE.
5. Toy Story 4
Most people thought Toy Story 3 would be the final movie in the series—and cried many tears accordingly—but then Pixar was all like, ‘HA, U THOUGHT’ and announced a fourth installment. Can’t wait to watch this in a theater full of my fellow adults.
