9 films to see this summer | Entertainment
As schools prepare to close and the days begin to warm up, one place you can always count on is the cinema. If you’re trying to beat the heat or find something to do with the free time, summer 2022 has some very promising movies. Here’s a list of what to watch for over the next few months.
1. Jurassic World: Dominion
The park is closed and the dinosaurs are on the loose. Jurassic World: Dominion is the grand finale of 30 years of preparation. The original cast returns and the reunion promises to put a smile on the faces of many Jurassic fans and should delight them in the process. Hopefully they’ll remember to keep their fingers out of the cages.
2. Light Year
Say goodbye to Woody and the gang; Buzz Lightyear flies solo. Chris Evans lends his voice to the astronaut in an epic adventure across the galaxy. Lightyear will be action-packed and, as a Pixar movie, sure to warm your heart.
3. Black Phone
It wouldn’t be a real summer without a few scares. The black phone is a chilling horror movie that sees a kidnapped child race against time to solve a mystery and escape. Director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill are collaborating again. Their previous work includes Claim and strange doctor.
4. Minions: The Rise of Gru
There’s not enough time since the last Minions film. The inexplicably popular series will have parents sitting through mindless yellow monsters shouting “BANANA!” and other deafening phrases, to the delight of their young children. If nothing else, the film will give kids something to look forward to as summer draws to a close.
5. Thor: Love and Thunder
Speaking of things of the heart, love is in the air Thor love and thunder. After saving the world six times, you’d think the God of Thunder would have earned his retirement. Chris Hemsworth returns, as does former co-star Natalie Portman. fans of Thor Ragnarok can rejoice, as director Taika Waititi will no doubt bring his signature style to this sequel.
It’s been too long since the last Jordan Peele movie. To finish, Nope is on its way to make up for the filmmaker’s absence. Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaaluya team up for a horror film steeped in mystery. For a movie like this, it’s best to know as little as possible, just to increase the shock factor.
7. Bullet train
From the director of John Wick, Atomic Blondeand Deadpool 2 comes another showcase of intense action. This time, Brad Pitt, Zazie Beets, Sandra Bullock and more will go head-to-head on a non-stop train. For action fans, this is one to watch.
Idris Elba against a lion is sure to be entertaining. After taking his daughters on safari, things go horribly wrong when a monstrous lion attacks their guide. The movie has a lot to offer, chief among them being Elba taking on the horror genre and bringing some class to the monster movie.
9. Three thousand years of nostalgia
The year 2022 seems to be the summer of Idris Elba. This movie is one of the most interesting movies that will be released soon. Directed by George Miller of Mad Max Fury Road, featuring Elba as Djinn, who grants three wishes to Tilda Swinton’s Alithea. If the trailer is any indication, expect trippy visuals and jaw-dropping performances.
