7 Movies To Watch This Summer

With summer approaching, the box office is gearing up for smash after smash as more trailers, character photos, and teasers ease their way out. With so many amazing movies coming out this summer, take a look at some of the most highly anticipated upcoming flicks.

Here are 7 Movies to Watch This Summer:

The Dark Knight Rises – In theaters June 20th

Director: Christopher Nolan

Starring: Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Liam Neeson, Anne Hathaway, Michael Cane, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Morgan Freeman, and Gary Oldman.

I have a feeling that pretty much everyone is looking forward to seeing this follow-up to 2008’s The Dark Knight, which takes place 8 years after where we left on in the previous film. Bane (Hardy) emerges as the new face of terror in Gotham as Batman (Bale) returns from the cave to protect the city that now hates him.


The Avengers – In Theaters May 4th

Directed by: Joss Whedon

Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeremy Renner, and Tom Hiddleston.

This is not just another superhero movie, this is the superhero movie! Fury (Jackson) brings together a massive ensemble of super humans – Iron Man (Downey Jr.), Captain America (Evans), The Hulk (Ruffalo), and others – to do one task, stop Loki (Hiddleston) and his crew from plotting disaster.


Rock of Ages – In theaters June 15th

Director: Adam Shankman

Starring: Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, Diego Boneta, and Alec Baldwin.

Hands down, this has got to be one of the funniest films coming out this year. A rock comedy musical that takes place in 1987 with Cruise playing Stacee Jaxx? Yes please!
