Marvel has been leading the market in superhero movies for the last decade, and shows no signs of slowing down. In the newest Captain America movie, someone is finally calling out the Avengers for destroying so many buildings. Captain America, ever sensitive to authority figures, is understandably upset.
May 13: "High Rise"
Based on the book by J. G. Ballard, “High Rise” depicts the decay of a seemingly utopian society. Tom Hiddleston plays a resident in a luxurious high-rise apartment building. As power outages plague the building, the society inside descends into chaos.

Brian Singer has directed the last four X-Men movies and all of them have been incredible. In the newest installment, the X-Men must face off against the first mutant in history, Apocalypse.
June 3: "Me Before You"
If you like crying, this is the movie for you. “Me Before You” is about a caretaker who falls in love with her patient (who, of course, is dying). It’s sappy and tragic and everything you could want from a summer rom-com.
June 17: "Finding Dory"
If you thought your childhood was over, THINK AGAIN.
June 24: "Independence Day: Resurgence"

July 17: "Ghostbusters"
Hear me out: Kate McKinnon. Hunting ghosts. With Melissa McCarthy. And Kristin Wiig. SNL is finally becoming the girl gang I always hoped it would be.
