Finals are approaching and summer is almost here. And what better way to celebrate the end of the year than with a trip to the movies? Here are three varied and highly anticipated films that will be hitting theaters this summer:

Incredibles 2 (June 15)

It’s been 14 years since “The Incredibles” was released, and now they’re making a comeback that’s bigger and better than ever. The first film focused on Bob Parr, also known as Mr. Incredible, returning to fighting crime. In the trailer for “The Incredibles 2,” Elastigirl is the one who returns to fighting crime; she is chosen to be the face of heroism to receive the public’s support for “supers.” The trailer is action-packed as Elastigirl drives off in a flashy motorcycle and new supersuit. Not only is the Parr family making a return, but so is beloved Frozone. And to the delight of fans, Frozone’s wife makes a comeback and doesn’t hold back from commenting on Frozone’s frequent disappearances: “Where you going ASAP? You better be back, ASAP!”  


Deadpool 2 (May 18)

“Deadpool 2” has been one of the most anticipated films in the Marvel fandom as it’s known for its action-packed and hilarious scenes. Fans have been waiting for two years for the sequel, and now its release date is fast approaching. The sequel is similar to the first movie except there are new superheroes and villains. The sequel shows Deadpool and his new sidekicks, Domino, Bedlam, Shatterstar, along with recurring sidekicks such as Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus. The trailer includes Ryan Reynolds staying true to his character as Deadpool: a mutant mercenary with a sharp tongue. Some of his scenes include his most witty and funny dialogue, such as, “So dark. You sure you’re not from the DC universe?” as he is getting stabbed by a villian.


Hereditary (June 8)

“Hereditary” is a chilling, supernatural movie that tells the story of a granddaughter who recently lost her grandmother. However, it seems as though the grandmother hasn’t really left and her presence may still be lingering. The movie trailer starts off with eerie music and a zoom-in of a dollhouse which seems to be the hobby of the granddaughter’s mother. As the trailer plays, the scenes get gorey as the granddaughter demonstrates disturbing behavior like chopping off a bird’s head with a pair of scissors and making creepy comments towards her mother such as “Who’s going to take care of me?” To which the mother responds, “You don’t think I’m going to take care of you?” The daughter then responds creepily with, “But, when you die?”

The trailer seems to be more than a cheap jump-scare and more about thought-provoking and frightening, supernatural elements.
