The Conjuring 2 – June 10:

         A sequel to The Conjuring, this film is about another case from the files of Ed and Lorraine Warren facing the “Enfield Poltergeist.” Instead of a married couple with six girls, this time it is a single mother with girls whose house is once again troubled by demons. Coming from a horror movie that was actually successful in the last decade, there is a fair amount of excitement surrounding this upcoming release. If the director follows what he did for the last, he is sure to have another truly terrifying movie.

Finding Dory – June 17:

         Probably one of the most recognizable titles to be hitting theaters soon is Finding Dory. Another sequel, this film follows Dory (Ellen Degeneres of course) and her search for her parents in a battle against her short-term memory loss. Finding Nemo was and still is a huge part of Pixar’s reigning legacy, so this movie has to withstand a lot of pressure from movie-goers who are hoping for the same heart-warming and sentimental feeling the first movie provided.

The Legend of Tarzan – July 1:

         As opposed to the original, this reboot of Tarzan features a live-action remake, where animation is replaced with real actors. Instead of simply jumping into the thick of the jungle, this plotline traces Tarzan back to his roots as well as following the other civilized half of the world where actors Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz make appearances, most likely portraying the film’s antagonists. While the original Tarzan was a beautiful spectacle of animation that brought much critical praise while also being well-received by the audience, many are skeptical about the new change in direction of the storyline and the addition of live acting.

Ghostbusters – July 15:

         Those who are fans of comedy have no doubt run into the original Ghostbusters film featuring  comedic legends Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. While these actors still play a role in the third Ghostbusters installment, there has been an addition, instead of four male protagonists, of four female protagonists. Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Jones all take over the role of hunting malevolent spirits that plague their city. Ghostbusters II was lesser of a success than its predecessor but fans of the series are seeming to look past it for this next film.
