Summer is here and so are the big movies that we’ve been waiting all year for. Join me as I count down the five can’t miss movies coming to a theater near you in the month of June!
#5 – Shaft
Serving as a direct sequel to the 2000 hit, this will tell the story of Shaft Jr who seeks the help of his father (Samuel L Jackson) and his grandfather (Richard Roundtree), the original Shaft. The streets of Harlem are about to get messy again and from the looks of the trailer, it looks to be a wild time. Perfect for the summer!
#4 – Men in Black: International
The agents are back and the aliens are still here to wreak havoc. While not a sequel to the previous film and missing Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, this is a spin-off of that trilogy and looks to provide laughs and an overall good time. With a top-notch cast, eye-popping special effects and even a little alien sidekick, MIB International could be spin-off worth checking out.
#3 – The Dead Don’t Die
Who doesn’t love a good zombie movie, especially when there’s comedy? Sort of a mixture between Zombieland & Shaun of the Dead, this new zombie tale looks to be a hilarious good time. A wonderful cast, a town full of zombies and the will to survive, what’s not to like? The Dead Don’t Die looks to be a bloody good time at the theater!
#2 – Child’s Play
Chucky is back and he’s not taking any prisoners. This is a reboot of the classic 1988 horror picture that was unique, inventive and while following the same path as other typical slashers, it was told from a young boy’s point of view. In this version, it seems that Chucky is using modern technology to his advantage and we don’t have long to see what’s up his little sleeve. Love it or hate it, Chucky is a creation unlike anything else and I look forward to seeing this updated treatment.
#1 – Toy Story 4
Our favorite toys are back in a whole new adventure. Yes, Andy is gone but our toys have a new home and some new friends. Trouble always seems to follow this gang and Woody will stop at nothing to ensure that everything is on track. Proving to be a wonderful trilogy, can Toy Story 4 be as successful with the powerful ending of part 3? It’s looking to be a wonderful experience for children as well as the adults, especially since we grew up with them long ago.
