Somehow you seem to have more time in the summer to go see movies, but the problem is that there are SO many movies to see, how do you choose?
Don’t worry, as per usual I’ve got you covered. These are the summer’s hottest movies that you basically have to see…otherwise, you’re going to be out of the loop and totally lame.

I know there’s been too many reboots recently, but Ocean’s 8 has an all-star cast that is guaranteed to produce a winner. Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter make for an incomparable cast.
You don’t even need to know the plot. Bullock alone is reason to see it.
RELEASE DATE: June 8
This movie isn’t getting nearly enough publicity, but it’s bound to be a winner. Lakeith Stanfield plays Cassius Green, a telemarketer who realizes that if he adopts a white accent, he can do better at his job.
It’s billed as a sci-fi comedy, which sounds amazing.
RELEASE DATE: July 6
Yes, this movie has already come out. No, that doesn’t mean it’s not a summer movie. Yes, you need to see if every weekend this summer. If you need more convincing, might I point you in the direction of Chris Evans’s beard?

I’m not one who loves thrillers, but John Cho could turn me. In this movie, his daughter goes missing and he turns to her online life to help find her. It all takes place on a computer screen, and it gives an interesting look as to how we live online vs real life.
RELEASE DATE: August 3
I mean, does this even need to be explained? We have been waiting for this for 14 years. It’s time.
