It’s the summer of sequels!
Much-anticipated new entries to the “Top Gun,” “Jurassic World” and “Thor” franchises headline a summer movie slate packed with likely blockbusters.
Add in origin tales for beloved “Despicable Me” and “Toy Story” characters, Jordan Peele’s latest mind-bending horror film and an Elvis Presley biopic to get fans all shook up and there’s something for everyone this season.
Here are movies to look forward to between now and early August.
“Top Gun: Maverick”
Consider your need for speed satisfied.
Now in theaters, “Top Gun: Maverick” is a feel-good force that captures the spirit of the original 1986 film while delivering a wholly new story. Tom Cruise is better than ever as the rebellious Navy pilot Maverick, who must now train a new generation of aviators.
It’s the perfect film to see with your wing man or woman.
“The Bob’s Burgers Movie”
Viewers of Fox’s meaty animated comedy series “Bob’s Burgers” can finally sink their teeth into a feature film about the quirky Belcher family.
