Fast & Furious 6: May 24

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker

Summary: The crew is back again and this time with vengeance. This movie takes place between “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” and “Fast Five,” which means the characters that either died or fell off the radar in the previous movies are back. This time around the movie isn’t about stealing cars it about finding a family member that was supposed to be dead. Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) comes to Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) to ask for help to catch a notorious criminal, the catch? The sister Toretto thought was dead is still alive and she’s kicking it with this untouchable thief.

Monsters University: June 21

Starring: John Goodman, Billy Crystal and Steve Buscemi

Summary: Ever wondered how Mike and Sully became so close? Well after 12 long years of waiting for a prequel we will finally know. At Monsters University the dynamic duo were actually very irritable when it came to the other. Which is not expected after watching “Monsters Inc.” you would think they were insufferable.

World War Z: June 21

Starring: Brad Pitt

Summary: “World War Z” brings a very popular trend to life, so everyone be ready for the zombie apocalypse. Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) works for the United Nations and is trying to save his family from the pandemic that is globally eating away at the human race. He is sent to the parts of the world that are over run by zombies, to try and find the reason for the outbreak so he can save what is left of humanity.

Despicable Me 2: July 3

Starring: Steve Carell and Al Pacino

Summary: Gru (Steve Carell) has been unwillingly recruited by the Anti-Villain League to defeat the newest criminal on the block. With the help of his adorable yellow minions and adopted daughters Gru sets out on an adventure turning his villain image to one of a super hero.

The Wolverine: July 26

Starring: Hugh Jackman

Summary: Not a huge Wolverine fan but what’s the difference from this movie compared to the others? All he’s doing is the same things he does in every movie but this time its based in Japan. With his anger problems and dreary outlook on life the only reason this movie would compel a person to watch it would have to be the over the top action scenes.

Elysium: August 9

Starring: Matt Damon and Jodie Foster

Summary: A movie set in the distant future where the rich live on Elysium and the rest live on the ruins of Earth. In Elysium there is no sickness, no war, no poverty; everything is perfect and Max De Costa (Matt Damon) is about to change all of that.

As they sadly attempt to live a normal life they save the world from their sworn enemy The Mother F*****, who is a scantly dressed dominatrix-looking man.
