You may have noticed temperatures across the country are warming up! A great way to cool off, or just take a break from work or summer school, is to see one of this summer’s big movie hits:
1. The To Do List (7/26)
This romantic comedy stars Aubrey Plaza as recent high school graduate, Brandy Clark. When she starts to feel pressured to become more sexually experienced before going off to college, Brandy makes a list of things to accomplish before the summer is over.
2. 2 Guns (8/2)
Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington get themselves into some trouble in this action comedy. They star as a DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence Officer assigned to investigate each other only to find out they’ve been set up by the very people they’ve been stealing money from.
3. Elysium (8/9)
Matt Damon and Jodie Foster are back in the movie business with this film set in the year 2154. The rich live on an expensive space-stay while the rest of the population lives on a desolate and poor Earth. Damon stars as the man given a mission that could bring equality to the two worlds.
4. Planes (8/9)
Who doesn’t love an animated movie? The lovable Dane Cook is the voice of Dusty, a lowly crop-dusting plane dreaming of competing in a great race. There’s just one little problem: he’s afraid of heights. But, with Skipper, his mentor, and some new friends, Dusty finds out his dream of flying high may be possible after all.
5. The Butler (8/16)
Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker) served eight presidents as the White House’s head butler from 1952 to 1986, so it’s fair to say he had a special front-row seat as history was made. The all-star cast includes Oprah, John Cusack, Lenny Kravitz, Robin Williams, and Mariah Carey.
6. Jobs (8/16)
“Stay hungry, stay foolish.” In Jobs, Ashton Kutcher gets the privilege of playing the esteemed tech genius Steve Jobs. The movie follows him from the time he dropped out of college to his ascension to one of the most creative entrepreneurs ever.
There are some great movies out this summer, so head on down to your local theater to escape the heat and indulge in a good movie and a bucket of popcorn. Just make sure you aren’t putting off any homework for summer classes!
