Here come superheroes, sequels, blockbuster action and A-list stars aplenty.
This year’s slate of summer movies is upon us, and it’s a busy one: Another spaceship crew falls prey to Ridley Scott’s deadly extraterrestrials in the sci-fi sequel Alien: Covenant (in theaters May 19), Scarlett Johansson leads a crazy bachelorette weekend in the comedy Rough Night (June 16), Charlize Theron is one seriously deadly woman in spy thriller Atomic Blonde (July 28), and it’s Matthew McConaughey vs. Idris Elba in Western fantasy The Dark Tower (Aug. 4), based on the Stephen King epic.
It’s a sea of heavy hitters and huge names, but we know it’s hard to see everything. So here are the 5 films you absolutely, positively must see.
