Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2016

With May around the corner, the summer movie season is about to officially begin.  I did a Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2016 list at the beginning of the year but I wanted to look at the summer movies specifically. It’s my favorite time of year and there’s a lot to look forward to.  It looks like any weekend not spent laying on a beach will be spent seeing a movie.

10. The Purge: Election Year

– For some reason I really enjoy these movies and I’m interested to see how this one turns out, especially with Frank Grillo returning.

9. X-Men: Apocalypse

– This one makes the list after the latest trailer teased Wolverine.  He’s the best part of this series and I’m excited he will be returning.

8. The Conjuring 2

– The first one is one of my favorite horror movies, so I am interested to see where this goes.  The trailer was kind of average, so it falls here to the 8 spot.

7. Finding Dory

– Does Finding Nemo need a sequel? Probably not.  But I’m still looking forward to it.

6. Independence Day: Resurgence

– Will it be good? I give it about a 25% chance.  But hopefully it’s fun of cheesy ’90s fun.

5. Free State of Jones

– McConaughey has been on a roll lately and this looks like it will continue that streak.

4. The Nice Guys

– This one kind of came out of nowhere but the trailers are hilarious and it looks like a good time at the movies.

3. Suicide Squad

– It has never seemed like my kind of movie but these trailers make the movie look like a ton of fun.

2. Jason Bourne

– Matt Damon is back and this moved towards the top of the list as soon as the trailer dropped last week.

1. Captain America: Civil War

– I was a little apprehensive until the early reviews started rolling in and were very positive.  I can’t wait for it to kick off the summer next week.

Honorable Mentions: The Founder, The Shallows, Money Monster
