Skyscraper (July 13)
Do you like to see Dwayne â€˜The Rockâ€™ Johnson do absurd things on film? Me too. Our last dose of Rock was when Johnson starred in the video game adaptationÂ Rampage this April. This summer, youâ€™ll be able to see him as former FBI agent and amputee Will Sawyer, who acts as head of security for the worldâ€™s tallest and safest building. Of course, that safety would make for a terrible movie, so you can guess how things go.
The movieâ€™s promised action isnâ€™t just implausible, itâ€™s impossible, as Twitter has so politely pointed out:
Even so, weâ€™re still stoked to see Dwayne Johnson be the most charismatic man on film. Plus, we have to wait untilÂ March 2019Â for his next movie,Â Fighting with My Family. Thatâ€™s, like, 9 months, man. Weâ€™re going to take what we can get.
Mission Impossible: Fallout (July 27)
Did you know that Tom Cruise is 55-years-old? They have to make him stop jumping off of things soon. But apparently not yet, asÂ Mission Impossible: Fallout is ready to hit theaters. Theyâ€™ve been pounding us with this trailer and its terrible song for months now:
Reasons to see the movie include: Tom Cruise probably getting hurt, Simon Pegg, Henry Cavillâ€™s Justice LeagueÂ Mustache, and whatever hats Ving Rhames wears.
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (July 27)
In case you missed it,Â Teen Titans Go!Â is all the rage with â€œthe kidsâ€ these days. Taking a page from characters likeÂ Deadpool, the Cartoon Network series is ultra-self aware and ultra-self referential. Itâ€™s like a wink and a nudge in the form of a TV show. Now, the Teens are taking their antics to the big screen. All the other heroes are getting their own films, but the Titans are being overlooked. They head to Hollywood to remedy this and end up tangled in a supervillainâ€™s plot.
Along with the kids themselves, the movie will feature cameos from a whole pile of DC heroes and villains voiced by celebrities. Nic Cage is finally going to play Superman, while Will Arnett will shift from his role as Batman in the LEGO movies to Batmanâ€™s enemy Slade Wilson/Deathstroke. Jimmy Kimmy and Lil Yachty are playing Batman and Green Lantern, respectively, so this should be a goofy, fun take on some of the most legendary superheroes. After all the grimdark appearances by these characters in the DCEU, weâ€™re ready for something lighter.
