It's almost summer, and you know what that means: BLOCKBUSTERS! Summer 2019 looks pretty dang stacked this year, and we're having a hard time choosing what we want to see the most, but we'll try to narrow it down for you!

Today, we're here to share a list of our most anticipated movies being released this summer! What movies are you looking forward to seeing in June, July, and August 2019? Let us know!

1) "Late Night" (release date: June 7, 2019)
"Late Night" stars Emma Thompson, and was written by and also stars Mindy Kaling. It looks to be a clever, charming, delightful film about a fictional late-night host who fears she's going to lose her talk show. Art imitating life? Maybe a little!
Men in Black: International 2019 movie poster

2) "Men in Black: International" (release date: June 14, 2019)
We loved the original "Men in Black," but its two sequels left a lot to be desired, so you might think we'd be a little trepidatious about this spin-off. This film stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who were excellent together in "Thor: Ragnarok," so we can't wait to see this dynamic duo team up once more.

3) "Shaft" (release date: June 14, 2019)
That Shaft is one bad mother...shut your mouth! We're not just talking about one Shaft, oh no. We're talking one, two, count 'em three generations of Shafts! With Richard Rountree and Samuel L. Jackson back in their titular roles, we can certainly dig it.
The Dead Don't Die movie poster

4) "The Dead Don't Die" (release date: June 14, 2019)
Jim Jarmusch's zombie horror comedy with an all-star cast including Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Iggy Pop, Carol Kane, and Tom Waits is sure to be a strange-but-dark-and-wacky offering.
Yesterday 2019 movie poster

5) "Yesterday" (release date: June 28, 2019)
Imagine a world where The Beatles never existed, but you happen to still know all their songs. That's the fantastical scenario presented in "Yesterday," and as lovers of both the Beatles' music and of Danny Boyle as a director, we're really looking forward to this one. 
Midsommar A24 movie poster

6) "Midsommar" (release date: July 3, 2019)
Writer/director Ari Aster really knocked it out of the park with his feature film debut, A24's "Hereditary," so you can be sure we'll be two of the first people in line for his next offering.
Marvel's Spider-Man: Far from Home movie poster

7) "Spider-Man: Far from Home" (release date: July 3, 2019)
"Spider-Man: Homecoming" was a blast to watch, and we think Tom Holland has found a way to truly embody the spirit of both Peter Parker and Spider-Man. Marvel has yet to disappoint us, and coming off the heels of the iconic "Avengers: Endgame" that we loved 3000, you can bet we're excited to see where the MCU goes from here.

8) "Stuber" (release date: July 12, 2019)
We love Kumail Nanjiani, and Dave Bautista impressed us big time when he played Drax the Destroyer in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" series. Put 'em together, and what have you got? A recipe for what we hope will be an outrageously zany buddy comedy that's funnier and less stupid than the typical summer comedies.
The Farewell A24 movie poster

9) "The Farewell" (release date: July 12, 2019)
A24 has a (mostly) great indie movie track record, and "The Farewell" looks to be right up their alley. Starring Awkwafina, we're looking forward to this dramedy about family, secrets, and love. We're attempting to stay in the dark about this movie, which is ironic considering its premise is about a family keeping someone in the dark about an illness. We swear we didn't plan that!
The Lion King 2019 movie poster

10) "The Lion King" (release date: July 19, 2019)
The animated version of "The Lion King" is one of our favorite Disney films. We fully admit that we haven't been thrilled with each of their 'live-action' remakes, but we loved director Jon Favreau's take on "The Jungle Book," so we're optimistic about what he'll do with this classic feline tale.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood movie poster Brad Pit Leonardo Dicaprio

11) "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" (release date: July 26, 2019)
We love Quentin Tarantino's sharp writing and slick directorial style. He has made some of our favorite films of all time, so we always rush to the theater whenever he delivers a new picture. Throw in the on-screen talent of Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Timothy Olyphant, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, and Al Pacino, and this is sure to be a winner.
Fast and Furious presents Hobbs and Shaw movie poster

12) "Hobbs and Shaw" (release date: August 2, 2019)
The movies in the "Fast & Furious" franchise have been hit or miss with us, but it's hard to deny that the series got a much-needed shot of adrenaline when Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was added to the cast. The franchise got another boost when Jason Statham came a-knockin'. Now, this muscle-bound duo will team up for a friendly rivalry in what looks to be an automotive-centric superhero action flick that's sure to be all sorts of implausible and dumb, but will probably a lot of fun, too.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie poster

13) "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" (release date: August 2, 2019)
Producer Guillermo del Toro has tapped independent horror direct André Øvredal to adapt this terrifyingly illustrated children's horror series to the big screen for the first time ever. We couldn't be more ecstatic to see what Øvredal and del Toro deliver to audiences later this year.
Good Boys movie poster

14) "Good Boys" (release date: August 16, 2019)
Think "Superbad," but with slighter younger kids. This film looks to shock and possibly offend with what seems to be some outrageous, raunchy comedy while trying to capture what it's like to grow up in the technological age. This movie may not be for everyone, but from what we've seen about it thus far, it's definitely for us.

15) "Where'd You Go, Bernadette?" (release date: August 16, 2019)
Richard Linklater directs Cate Blanchett as a woman who disappears out of thin air to reconnect with the past she once loved. Sign us up!
