School’s out, and time spent in movie theaters is always in, as our favorite cast of characters is ready to outshine the sun. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: (have stepped) Out of the Shadows and into that successful light, where profits are rolling in like stormy clouds on a summer day. How long will their shadow steal the PG-limelight? Is it time X-Men: Apocalypse embark on a new adventure outside of the blockbuster kingdom? Will those adventuresome magicians be once again uttering Now You See Me 2 a large, welcoming crowd (who prefer them on the big screen and safely out of reach of their watches and wallets).
During this season of extended sunlight, will audiences be drawn to the dark side and send the Conjuring 2 the biggest box-office spot once again, horrifying those who cross its creepy path? In a less chilling part of town, the race was on and Warcraft blended well with videogame lovers their first weekend at play. How long will their game last? Are they all played out?
Most importantly, with all of these imaginative powerhouses to choose from, will our quest for Finding Dory result in the most successful spot beyond the sea (and will Dory even remember how she got there?) Will she “just keep swimming” among the biggest fish in town all summer long?
Within that cinematic sea, which of our breezy tales is worth sailing toward this weekend?
