Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2018!

Oh, hey summer! You came out of nowhere! This month, we wanted to share a list of films we're looking forward to for the upcoming "summer" quarter, movies that will be released between June 1st, 2018 and August 31st, 2018! Please tell us what YOU'RE looking forward to in the coming months!

1) "Adrift" (release date: June 1, 2018)
We have enjoyed Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin in many of their past projects. This true-life story looks to be an intriguing and gripping film. Plus, we're looking forward to never having to see the trailer for this movie ever again (it has played before 16 out of 58 in-theater movies this year).

2) "American Animals" (release date: June 1, 2018)
We have a feeling "American Animals" won't come to San Diego until a few weeks after its release, but we're looking forward to seeing this film because it's MoviePass's first venture into acquiring films for mass consumption. The cast is fantastic and the premise is super interesting.

3) "Ocean's 8" (release date: June 8, 2018)
Does "Ocean's Eleven" need a spin-off? No, but we've been here for "Ocean's 8" ever since we saw the cast list: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, and more. Uhhh, YES PLEASE.

4) "Hereditary" (release date: June 8, 2018)
A24 has an impressive track record when it comes to putting out amazing movies. Though we have not seen the trailer for "Hereditary," it's hard to ignore the buzz that surrounds this film. We adore Toni Collette and are very much looking forward to seeing what she can do in this horror drama.

5) "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" (release date: June 8, 2018)
BigJ and I both remember watching "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" as kids, so we're interested in learning more about the man behind the red jacket beyond the little we already know about him. This looks to be one of the year's best documentaries.

6) "Incredibles 2" (release date: June 15, 2018)
Though we will fully admit that the trailers for "Incredibles 2" have given us only tepid expectations, we absolutely love the original and can't wait to see what Pixar does with these beloved characters in this sequel. We'll be there opening day but will approach it with cautious exuberance.

7) "Tag" (release date: June 15, 2018)
We know what you're thinking: this is a movie about people who have played the same game of tag for decades, how could you be excited about it? We have our doubts, but the trailer made it look like it was right up our alley. There might be a lot more to this than just a simple schoolyard game of tag.

8) "Sicario: Day of the Soldado" (release date: June 29, 2018)
The original "Sicario" was one of our top five favorite movies of 2015, and if this sequel is even half as good as the original, it will still be a great movie even if Denis Villeneuve is not involved behind the camera.

9) "Ant-Man and the Wasp" (release date: July 6, 2018)
 Marvel keeps knocking it out of the park every time it steps up to the plate. Coming off the heels of "Avengers: Infinity War," we are super excited to see how the light comedic stylings of Ant-Man ties into to the dark tone set by its predecessor.

10) "Sorry to Bother You" (release date: July 6, 2018)
"Sorry to Bother You" promises to be one of the most ambitious films of 2018. The hype behind this film is hard to ignore. With a cast featuring Tessa Thompson, Lakeith Stanfield, Armie Hammer, Terry Crews, Steven Yeun, and Danny Glover, we'll be there opening day if it comes to town.

11) "Eighth Grade" (release date: July 13, 2018)
Another coming-of-age story from A24, who delivered the Oscar-nominated fan favorite "Lady Bird" last year. This film looks like a compelling story about a young, awkward teen growing up in the image-obsessed, social media age. It could be enlightening, and the trailer promises excellent performances.

12) "The Equalizer 2" (release date: July 20, 2018)
The first "Equalizer" movie was a huge, unexpected treat. With both Denzel Washington and director Antoine Fuqua back for the sequel, we forsee a lot of name-taking and ass-kicking in this one.

13) "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" (release date: July 27, 2018)
Ever since J.J. Abrams stepped in as a producer on this series, it has consistently delivered endless amounts of summer popcorn-movie fun. We have no doubt this trend will continue until Tom Cruise is no longer able to physically perform the role of Ethan Hunt. Plus, this one's got Henry Cavill and major arm-pumping!

14) "Searching" (release date: August 3, 2018)
A late entry to our list, we saw the trailer for this film attached to "Book Club" the other day and were blown away by how gripping it looks. We've seen movies filmed via computer screens before, but John Cho looks to bring the intensity to a whole other level in this missing person mystery.

15) "The Meg" (release date: August 10, 2018)
Full transparency, this movie looks stupid as hell, but it may be a case of "it's so stupid that it's actually fun," like in a "Sharknado" sort of way. We have to hope that's the case or else it will be insufferable.

16) "A Prayer Before Dawn" (release date: August 10, 2018)
Another movie by A24? Awesome. It's a boxing movie? Awesome. It has a captivating premise? Awesome. And it's a movie featuring real-life prison inmates in Thailand? Whoa... that's crazy and awesome.

17) "The Happytime Murders" (release date: August 17, 2018)
Melissa McCarthy teams up with some foul-mouthed muppets looking for a murderer. What could go wrong? Don't be fooled by the muppets: the only trailer released for this project thus far is "red-band," which means you should leave the kiddies at home for this one.
Image Source
18) "Crazy Rich Asians" (release date: August 17, 2018)
Representation matters. We haven't read the book yet, but we've heard good things about the stylish, fun looking "Crazy Rich Asians." This one promises to be an interesting romance. Read everything you need to know about the behind-the-scenes goings on about this movie here, there's a lot more than meets the eye.
