It’s summer! Vacations! Lots of sleep, lots of games outside and lots and lots of movies. Every year, filmmakers line up their movies for the holidays to get maximum viewing. Good for us, because there is a great line-up ahead of us in the months to come.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Release date: May 6
Since its release in early May, some of us must have already seen the latest Marvel movie. However, if you’re one of those who were busy with their exams before the holidays, this should be at the top of your list before it hits theaters.
Benedict Cumberbatch reprises the role of Doctor Strange who attempts to prevent the destruction of the multiverse with the help of friends new and old. With an all-star cast including Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Benedict Wong, we know some of the characters from the first film will reprise their roles. However, this film also has Elizabeth Olsen as The Scarlet Witch, as a bonus. Who else to expect from the Marvel Universe? Well, we’ll have to watch it to find out.
Top Gun: Maverick
Release date: May 27
We’re sure most of our American readers weren’t even born when Top Gun came out in 1986 and became an instant hit. After 36 years, Tom Cruise returns as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in this follow-up film about an intense training school for naval fighter pilots. And boy, Tom Cruise still looks the same.
We recommend watching the 1986 version first to understand why Top Gun: Maverick is so important to the rest of us.
Jurassic World Dominion
Release date: June 10
Jurassic Park returns to theaters in this corky trilogy that finds dinosaurs roaming the Earth freely and humans trying to maintain a delicate balance. In this outing, Sam Neill and Laura Dern join Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the human stars of the more recent films. Jeff Goldblum, who was in the most recent sequel, also features.
With the final film in the trilogy, hopefully we’ll get a healthy dose of dinosaurs, as we may not see them in the near future.
Release date: June 17
No, it’s nothing else. Yes, you guessed it right. It’s our own Buzz Lightyear from the Toy Story series, but he has his own movie. Tim Allen replaced by Chris Evans for and as Lightyear, will embark on an intergalactic adventure with a group of ambitious recruits, and his robot companion.
Since we grew up with Toy Story, this will be a nostalgic ride for all of us and a must-have.
Release date: June 24
The film will explore the life and music of Elvis Presley (Austin Butler), seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning more than 20 years, from Presley’s rise to stardom to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the changing cultural landscape. At the center of this journey is one of the most important and influential people in Elvis’ life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).
He’s on my list mostly because of Tom Hanks. No one wants to miss the legend coming to our screens this summer. Right?
Minions: The Rise of Gru
Release date: July 1
Admit it, we all love minions and we all love Gru. Although the Minions are only a part of the Despicable Me series, they have gained more popularity than the main characters. Of course, Gru is an exception who has our hearts in his hands from the very first film. This film will show us the first years of Gru’s life.
In the 1970s, amid a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans, Gru (Steve Carell) grows up in the suburbs. Fan boy of a super group of super-villains known as the Vicious 6, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. Luckily, he gets a destructive backup from his loyal followers, the Minions.
Let’s wait for the release of the film to discover the havoc these characters create on our screens.
Thor: Love and Thunder
Release date: July 8
Marvel will strike again with its second mid-year superhero outing with Thor: Love and Thunder. Since Thor: Ragnarok was exhilarating, we can’t wait to see what the new one has in store. Additionally, this one has Christian Bale as the antagonist and Natalie Portman will reprise her role as Dr. Jane Foster. Already excited, hanh!
In this film, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is on an unprecedented journey – a quest for inner peace. But his retreat is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr, the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. Thor, accompanied by old friends, will have to stop him before it’s too late.
That said, I still can’t fathom the fact that we’ll get a Thor movie without Loki. He has been an integral part of the franchise, and I for one would miss him dearly.
DC League of Super Pets
Release date: July 29
We don’t want to be so open about our Marvel bias, so just to show how balanced we are, here’s DC’s Superhero Pack with DC League of Super-Pets. Starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, John Krasinski and Kate McKinnon, this animated film is comedy and adventure.
In DC League of Super-Pets, Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime side by side in Metropolis. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a ragtag shelter pack – Ace the dog, PB the pot-bellied pig, Merton the turtle, and Chip the squirrel – to harness their newfound powers and help him. to save the superhero.
So… DC superheroes need rescuing? And then you ask why we prefer Marvel. I laugh. The movie looks super fun, just for the lighthearted holiday moods.
Release date: Eid-ul-Adha
Since we have shared so much about Hollywood, it is fair to mention our own Pakistani film which we would like our young people to watch to support the local film industry as well. Fahad Mustafa and Mahira Khan starring, Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad explores themes of corruption in our society in an eye-opening way. The movie trailer is full of color, energy and action, a complete masala movie to put it lightly.
Directed by Nabeel Qureshi, we can be sure of a good screenplay, excellent direction and exceptional performances that will accompany you for a long time. To support our Pakistani cinema, here is our selection for your summer film collection.
