Although summer movies have essentially been coming to theaters since the start of FEBRUARY with “The Lego Batman Movie,” the season officially kicks off tomorrow with the release of “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2.” It’ll begin a run between now and mid-August that sees hardly a week go by without the arrival of some kind of $200 million spectacular, almost always tied to a franchise of some kind.
If you need some psyching up for the season, or just to remind you of what theaters will have to offer, you can check out our mammoth preview here. But if all that reading is too much, critic Amon Warmann comes to the rescue with his annual supercut montage of the summer blockbusters.
The fun four-minute clip features footage from not just ‘Guardians,’ but also “King Arthur,” “Alien: Covenant,” “Baywatch,” “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” “Wonder Woman,” “The Mummy,” “Cars 3,” “Transformers: The Last Knight,” “Baby Driver,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “War For The Planet Of The Apes,” “Dunkirk,” “Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets,” “Atomic Blonde,” “The Dark Tower” and more. We might have gone with a different musical choice, but it’s fun stuff: watch the video below.
