The 17 Most Exciting Movies Coming Out This Summer



From Esquire UK
We're just starting to get the first specks of summer – a flash of sun here, a pair of pasty legs there – so it must be time to get out your calendar and plan for some serious hours sitting in a dark cinema.
Summer is blockbuster season in movieland and there are some massive hitters coming your way this year. Grab your diary and family-sized bag of popcorn: here are the 17 most exciting movies heading to cinemas soon.

28 April - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

The best way to kick off the summer season is with this anarchic bunch of outlaws and a pumping retro mix tape. This time they're facing off against gilded villain Ayesha, while Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) meets his dad (Kurt Russell), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) scraps with her sister Nebula (Karen Gillan), and Rocket and Baby Groot kick about being deadly but cute.

12 May - Alien: Covenant

Ridley Scott has promised us this follow-up to Prometheus and prequel to the Alien movies will be gory and scary, and judging by the footage we've already seen, we believe him.
When the crew of the Covenant explore a new territory, they're infected with spores that cause alien-disease (not the technical term), resulting in carnage. And what's happened to Elizabeth Shaw and David the android? Nothing good we suspect...

19 May - Colossal

A bizarre monster movie where Anne Hathaway is a troubled woman who discovers she controls the movements of a giant kaiju in Seoul. As you do. It's directed by Nacho Vigalondo, who made the brill but mental Time Crimes – we've expecting more of the same.

16 May - Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge

We hear what you're saying: "Who, apart from Johnny Depp's accountant, could possibly be excited by a new Pirates movie?" But hold up – it screened at Cinema Con and rumour has it it's actually good. Javier Bardem is the vengeful Captain Salazar who wants to kill all the pirates at sea, while Jack hunts for Poseidon's trident to defeat him.

29 May - Baywatch

Obviously we're not expecting a sunset-dappled treatise on what it is to be human from this, but it does at least look rude and kind of funny. Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron play mismatched lifeguards teaming up to stop a drug trafficking ring. We're praying it's more 21 Jump Street than CHiPs.

2 June - Wonder Woman

The first female-led superhero movie out of the new DC stable stars Gal Gadot as the powerful Amazonian drawn into helping a downed WWII pilot. Will it fix DC's woes? Maybe – at least it's got a brighter colour palette and a woman behind the camera in director Patty Jenkins.

9 June - The Mummy

Universal has high hopes for this franchise re-starter, a standalone which will feed into a wider monsterverse which will include The Invisible Man, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Van Helsing and more. Tom Cruise is the military man accidentally unleashing an ancient curse, Sofia Boutella is the power-crazy princess risen from the grave and Russell Crowe is portentous and Englishy Doctor Jekyll.

16 June - Rough Night

A hen night goes wrong when one of the party accidentally kills a stripper in this comedy which sounds to us like a gender-swapped version of Very Bad Things (with a bit of Weekend at Bernie's?). Scarlett Johansson is the bride, with Kate McKinnon and Zoe Kravitz as members of her party. Could be this summer's Bridesmaids.

25 June - Despicable Me 3

Gru meets his long lost (and loads nicer) brother Dru, who wants to team up against deranged '80s child star Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker) who's intent on world domination. Look out for some Minion action in there too.

28 June - Baby Driver

Edgar Wright's latest is a stylish, stylised comedy heist movie with Ansel Elgort as Baby, a young getaway driver trapped into working a heist doomed to fail. Looks like a cross between a '70s cop film and a Tarantino movie with a mix tape to rival GOTG.

7 July - Spider-Man Homecoming

We didn't even know we wanted another Spider-Man movie until we met Tom Holland's Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War. Now we can't think of many things we're more stoked about. Michael Keaton plays super villain The Vulture, while Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark will be dropping in as Spidey's mentor. Looks like the youthful hit Marvel needs right now.

14 July - War for the Planet of the Apes
