Sometimes you feel like there’s no point visiting the cinemas, because it looks like there’s nothing great showing. Now is not one of those times, because there are some major hot movies showing right now that if you miss the cinema experience, you are missing something major.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout
This makes number one on our list for obvious reasons. Don’t worry, if you did not watch the previous Mission: Impossible, you’re safe to see this one. It will initiate you into the Mission: Impossible fandom, because honestly, Tom Cruise knows how to make you just love these missions.
About the movie: Ethan Hunt and the IMF team join forces with CIA assassin August Walker to prevent a disaster of epic proportions. Arms dealer John Lark and a group of terrorists known as the Apostles plan to use three plutonium cores for a simultaneous nuclear attack on the Vatican, Jerusalem and Mecca, Saudi Arabia. When the weapons go missing, Ethan and his crew find themselves in a desperate race against time to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. It was directed by Christopher McQuarrie and produced by Tom Cruise, Christopher McQuarrie, Dana Goldberg, J.J. Abrams, David Ellison and Don Granger.
Ladies, this is another opportunity to fall in love with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson all over again – like we need any more reason to love the hot actor. The movie is mostly set in just one scene and The Rock just wants to save his family, but the action – and anxiety – he gave us while trying to achieve that is all you need for one movie night. Was he eventually able to save his two cute kids and wife? Watch to find out.
About the movie: Will Sawyer is a former FBI agent and U.S. war veteran who now assesses security for skyscrapers. While he’s on assignment in China, the world’s tallest and safest building catches on fire – and he gets framed for it. Now a wanted man and on the run, he must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family members when they become trapped inside the inferno. The movie was directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber and produced by Dwayne Johnson, Rawson Marshall Thurber, Hiram Garcia, Beau Flynn and Mary Parent.
Ant-man and the Wasp
Everyone knows Marvel either goes big or they don’t go at all. Ant-man and the Wasp reflects what the Ant-man and his partner were up to after the big fight in Captain America: Civil War. But you just wait for what happens at the end credits scene. Marvel is crazyyyyyy!
About the movie: Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy. It was directed by Peyton Reed and screenplay done by Paul Rudd, Gabriel Ferrari, Chris McKenna and Andrew Barrer.
Teen Titans GO! To the movies
Animation just got even bigger! It seems that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies — all but the Teen Titans. Robin is bound and determined to remedy that situation by becoming a star instead of a sidekick. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their hearts, the Teen Titans head to Hollywood to fulfill their dreams. Things soon go awry, however, when a supervillain plans to take over the planet — putting the very fate of the young heroes on the line. Plus Stan Lee actually makes an appearance in the movie.
Teen Titans GO! was directed by Peter Rida Michail and Aaron Horvath, and produced by Will Arnett, Peter Rida Michail, Aaron Horvath, Michael Jelenic and Peggy Regan.
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible. This was directed by Brad Bird.
