    • Hardcore Henry (Apr.8th) – a film told from the first person perspective only. This film not only looks extremely nauseating, but it also looks like an all around fun movie. Not too much has been released about it, except for the basic yet interesting plot. The character wakes with no memory but one event leads to another, and has to get his wife back. Hopefully the movie gets decent reviews, because it’s been catching the eye of a lot of moviegoers.


  • The Jungle Book (Apr.15th) – Whether or not this film will be good, is a whole debate on its own, but to see everyone’s childhood story being told in a live action film, is incredible. With a cast including; Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray, Idris Elba, among others, hopefully means that this movie will be relatively enjoyable.
  • Ratchet & Clank (Apr.29th) – This childhood Sony Playstation game has officially been brought to the big screen and looks beautiful. Ratchet & Clank is a story of two unlikely companions saving the universe from a businessman named Chairman Drek. Not only has Sony announced this movie but many more as well are coming to the film industry.



    • Captain America: Civil War (May 6th) –  With one of the most anticipated films of this year coming out, this movie will most definitely be one of the big box office hits. Introducing Spider-Man into the fray, the (somewhat) Avengers will be coming back for another classic, as Captain America and Iron Man divide the Avengers into separate teams and fight over the previous events in “The Winter Soldier” which includes spoilers, therefore will not be mentioned.
    • Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (May 20th) – The original Neighbors included a star-studded cast that brought plenty of hilarious moments to the screen as a starting family (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) compete with a new college sorority for some peace and quiet, right next to each other’s homes. In the sequel, the family including Zac Efron (who starred in the former movie) will be fighting to regain control of their territory.


  • X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27th) – Yet another superhero movie in the marvel universe. Although if it’s anything like the past X-Men movie “Days of Future Past”, then it will hopefully bring in positive reviews from critics. After the events of “Days of Future Past”, a new villain to the X-Men/Marvel universe is brought into the battle, his name is Apocalypse and he is one of the most powerful villains in history.




  • Finding Dory (June 17th) – This sequel to the groundbreaking Disney Pixar film is going to hit home for many children, and teens alike. Seeing as high schoolers now saw “Finding Nemo” as kids, the new generation will never understand the nostalgia of these two films. When Dory finally realizes she has to find her family with the help of, Nemo, and Marlin, Dory is going to start her search for her family.
