We’re back with another Summer hot list the blockbusters have arrived, get your popcorn ready! To celebrate the beginning of the summer movie season we’re going to countdown our top ten most anticipated for this summer 2017. Any movie coming out from May 3rd to August 19th (excluding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 since it’s out almost everywhere and I’ve already seen it) is eligible. I’m going to tell you a bit about the films, as well as why I am hyped to see it. So without saying too much else let’s get to the good stuff…
10. Dean (June 2nd)
This comedy (written and directed by the hilarious Demetri Martin) features Dean (Martin) a man struggling with grief at the loss of his mother. Meanwhile, his father (Kevin Kline) is struggling in a different way. Both try to deal with everything including each other. When both of the men meet ladies that might be able to help them cope they begin to realize that perhaps the emotions of another person may or may not be what they need at this moment in their lives. Look I wanted to focus on an awesome looking indie film that wasn’t going to get any attention and there’s not much coming out better than this!
Why I’m Hyped: I LOVE Demetri Martin’s stand up. I think his special Person is incredible. His deadpan delivery seems to work with the introspective and existential nature of the material here. Likewise, anyone who saw In a World… can tell you this guy can work the awkward dude romance. I am concerned about him directing the film but if there’s anything I’ve learned from things like Garden State and Drinking Buddies it’s that funny guys putting themselves in their own films can work just fine.
9. The Mummy (June 9th)
8. All Eyez on Me (June 16th)
7. Baby Driver (June 28th)
6. The Big Sick (June 23rd)
5. Dunkirk (July 21st)
4. Spiderman: Homecoming (July 7th)
After his appearance in last year’s Captain America: Civil War Tom Holland returns as Peter Parker. This time though we get to know your friendly neighborhood Spiderman a little bit more. With The Vulture (Michael Keaton) looking for vengeance against someone who’s wronged him Spidey might need all the help he can get. Luckily Peter has Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) aka Iron Man and all his awesome friends on his side. After his appearance in the Avengers, we get to finally catch the web-slinger back on the big screen.
Why I’m Hyped: I love Spiderman! That alone has me hyped when you couple I like how they handled him inCaptain America: Civil War.You have RDJ showing up which should prove awesome! I really am excited to see Michael Keaton as The Vulture. If you look on the surface of John Watts’ Cop CarI don’t think it will give us much indication. However, it’s his handling of the kid in that film, something I enjoyed, should translate here. In addition, the fast pace from that should also be a welcomed factor! If you haven’t seen the film do so it’s pretty good.
