Must see Summer movies

July is coming to an end and August just around the
corner, but you still have time to get watch summer blockbusters. Despite highly
anticipated movies like, Captain America Civil War and Ghostbusters having already graced fans this summer, there are still more movies fans are
waiting for.

Star Trek Beyond

With Fast and the Furious director, Justin Lin, helming the
movie and stars like Zachary Quinto, Idris Ebla, Zoe Saldana and Chris Pine
starring, we know that Star Trek Beyond is going to be a hit. The third
installment in the rebooted franchise sees an attack on the
enterprise force a crash landing on an unknown world. Star Trek Beyond opens in
theatres today!

Ice Age Collision Course

Since the first Ice Age hit theatres in 2002 we have seen
this franchise grow rapidly. Now in the six movie, Ice Age: Collision Course
has young movie-goers excited to see what will happen to their favourite
characters Sid, Ellie and Manny (voiced by Ray Romano). Ice Age Collision
Course is also in theatres today.  

Jason Bourne

The Jason Bourne movies were a huge hit in the early 2000s
and now we see the original star, Matt Damon come back as the most wanted ex
CIA agent, Jason Bourne. In this installment the CIA director is on the hunt
for Bourne and will use anything in her power to bring him in. The new
installment in this franchise hits theatres on July 22.

Suicide Squad

After the DC flop, that was Batman vs. Superman, many comic
book fans are hoping for redemption in DCs next movie, Suicide Squad. Starring
Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Viola Davis and Cara Delevingne fans are
gaining more confidence that this film will deliver. This movie sees a
government agency lead by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) recruit and release criminals
to do the agency’s bidding. Fans will not have to hold their breath long as the
movie releases on August 1.

Sausage Party

Sausage Party came to the surprise to many when the trailer
released earlier this year. From the people that brought you Pineapple Express,
this movie puts adult humour in animated form. It follows Frank, a hotdog
voiced by Seth Rogen, as he is finally selected from the supermarket to join
a loving family. Things quickly turn when Frank and his friends realize they
weren’t going to a loving home for a vacation, but instead to be made into
meals. This hilarious movie also stars Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, James Franco,
Paul Rudd, Salma Hayek and many more. Sausage Party is definitely not kid
friendly but will be one adults can enjoy on August 12.
