Summer blockbuster season has officially begun (don’t bother to check your calendars, movie lovers) thanks to the record-breaking arrival last weekend of Captain America: Civil War. How long will his battle for ultimate box-office domination last? With so many stars on the horizon, he and his Marvel buddies can, luckily for us, expect some worthy competition. First up, George Clooney and Julia Roberts are hoping their Money Monster will make its own profitable mark in the cinematic universe. Readers of The Jungle Book are counting on their page turner holding the attention of the young, the old and the ageless moviegoers.
Now that Mother’s Day has passed, will audiences be passing on another opportunity to watch Julia Roberts (and her timeless mom counterparts) shine? Will those shining stars align for The Huntsman: Winter’s War (alerting him that winter is finally over?) What about that comedic cat Keanu? How many storytelling lives does he possess?
Which of our lively tales promise to live on all summer long at movie theaters far and wide?
