Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: May 5

This next film follows the ad ventures of Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and (baby) Groot as they go on a quest to find Pe ter Quill’s true father.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales: May 25

Jack Sparrow and his scurvy band of pirates set sail for the last time in this upcoming Disney flick.

The movie features beloved characters, such as Geoffrey Rush’s Barbosa and even Orlando Bloom’s William Turner.

Javier Bardem will join the crew as well, portraying the terrifying Captain Salazar. Hopefully in this conclusion to the “Pirates” series Sparrow will finally answer the question: “Why is the rum always gone?”

Wonder Woman: June 2

Are you more of a DC Comics fan? After making an appearance in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Wonder Woman is getting her own movie.

Actress Gal Gadot portrays the superhero, and Chris Pine is also featured as her counterpart. This film is sure to feature lots of action.

Cars 3: June 13

Lightning McQueen returns in this third installment of Pixar’s “Cars” series.

However, fans may have panicked after seeing the film’s trailer, which shows the beloved race car getting into a fatal accident. Will this hero ever race again? Chances are this movie will center on McQueen’s attempt to get back on the race track.

Spider-man: Homecoming: July 7

It’s a great summer for super hero movies.

Up and coming actor Tom Holland fills the shoes of Toby McGuire and Andrew Garfield in Marvel’s reboot of the “Spider Man” franchise. He made an appearance in “Captain America: Civil War,” but this will be his first in a leading man’s shoes.

Famous guest appearances include Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Michael Keaton, set to play Vulture. Therefore, Marvel fans may want to keep their eyes on this one.

War for the Planet of the Apes: July 14

This is the third installment of the Apes movies, and it seems that it will move the series even closer to what Charlton Heston portrayed in the 1960s. In this flick, critically acclaimed CGI actor Andy Serkis plays Caesar. Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn and Karin Konoval star.

Dunkirk: July 21

This Christopher Nolan film tells the true story of the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of Allied troops in the 1940s. Actors Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance star in this movie. Musician Harry Styles will also be making his film debut.
