Friday's Top 5... My Most Anticipated Movies of Summer

#5: The Beguiled (June 23rd)

I'm not really a fan of Sofia Coppola, but the trailer looks atmospheric and promising (though Colin Farrel's wailing at the end about "vengeful bitches" immediately made me think of the Nicolas Cage version of The Wicker Man, which maybe isn't a great sign).

#4: Wonder Woman (June 2nd)

I probably only see, like, 10% of the superhero movies that come out in any given year - it's not really my genre - but I'm looking forward to Wonder Woman. It probably helps that the trailer has a bit of a Captain America: The First Avenger vibe.

#:3 Dunkirk (July 21)

Christopher Nolan is one of the most consistent filmmakers working today and from the trailer this looks to be a great epic. Per usual, Nolan boasts a fantastic cast to sell his story.

#2: War for the Planet of the Apes (July 14)

One of the big surprises for me over the last few years is how much I've enjoyed the Planet of the Apes reboot. This one looks to continue the level of quality of the revived series... though I'm going to need some reassurance about the safety of Maurice before I see it.

#1: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

It had me at Baby Groot.

Yes to all of these. Also looking forward to some others, too:

Spider-Man: Homecoming
All Eyez on Me
The Fate of the Furious (I love this stupid franchise)
Baywatch (kinda hoping for a so bad its awesome experience)

Good list. Had I seen the trailer for Atomic Blonde yesterday instead of this afternoon, my list would have looked slightly different.
