With the summer in full effect, Americans across the country will be doing anything it takes to stay cool. One of the most popular ways to prevent heat stroke is, obviously, by stepping into a freezing cold movie theatre and stuffing your face with Dip n Dots and an extra large Coke.
We here at Crooked Manners are very excited for the summer movie selection this year, which includes films like Guardians of the Galaxy, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, and many, many more. Let’s dive into what’s on deck for this year’s summer blockbusters!
Based on the Lois Lawry’s 1993 fantasy classic of the same name, The Giver is about the story of a 12-year-old boy living in Utopian society that turns out to be not so great. This child, played by Brenton Thwaites, is chosen to receive the memories of an old man played by Jeff Bridges. From the trailer (if you haven’t read the books) you can tell shit gets all fucked up and Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, and even Taylor Swift show up.
22 Jump Street
Welp, these guys are back. I have to be honest here: I actually really enjoyed the first movie and the trailer for this sequel actually looks pretty decent. This time around, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum go to college to do basically the same thing they did in the first movie. They’ll probably end up questioning their friendship/partnership (just like they did in the first movie) and will become more “mature” friends in the end. The official synopsis states, “If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.” I just got a little less excited.
Guardians of the Galaxy
The title sounds ridiculous but just watch the trailer. This movie looks pretty bad ass. The story follows Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) on a bounty hunt alongside a talking raccoon (Bradley Cooper…?), a talking tree (Vin Diesel… what?), and a hot alien chick (Zeo Saldana… okay I’m back) that will help put the universe back in order. Or will they?!
Even more movies coming in Part II! Stay tuned!
