With the arrival of summer break comes the arrival of summer blockbuster season. This summer is bringing a slew of A-list movies, and these are some of the biggest.

Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (May 5th): Marvel’s ragtag team of space scoundrels is back. Star-Lord, Gammorah, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, and Baby Groot are returning to the big screen to discover the secrets behind Star-Lord’s father, Ego the Living Planet.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (May 26th): Captain Jack Sparrow’s latest adventure finds him facing off against Captain Salazar, a former enemy returned from the Devil’s Triangle, and an army of ghost pirates. In order to survive, Jack must find the fabled Trident of Poseidon.

Wonder Woman (June 2nd): After her appearance in last year’s Batman V. Superman, Wonder Woman finally gets her own movie. It chronicles her journey from Amazon princess to full-fledged warrior during World War I.

Cars 3 (June 16): Pixar is going back to the old Cars well to pit the aging Lightning McQueen against new, sleek, young racers.

Transformers: The Last Knight (June 23rd): Michael Bay and his brand of explosive, toy-based films will continue to assault audiences with loud noises and senseless violence as Optimus Prime searches for an ancient artifact to save his home planet.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7th): The latest iteration of Spider-Man, previously introduced in Captain America: Civil War, is being personally mentored by Tony Stark and must face off against the Vulture, all while trying to balance his high school life. Student Makena Lenhart is excited because, “Spider-Man has always been my favorite and I loved the new kid that played him in Civil War.”

War for the Planet of the Apes (July 14th): The newest chapter in the critically acclaimed Apes saga details Caesar’s turn from peaceful pacifist to mythic war leader after enduring painful losses at the hands of a human army.  Snow Student Tagaloa Tapusoa says he’s most excited for this one, “Because there are apes riding horses, flying helicopters, and shooting AK-47’s.”

Dunkirk (July 21): Christopher Nolan, director of The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, and Interstellar, is bringing his trademark style of mystery and intensity to this film about Allied soldiers being surrounded by German troops during the Battle of France in World War II.

Whatever a student’s preference, cinematic options are aplenty this summer.
