23 Summer 2018 Movies To Get Excited About Now, From 'Incredibles 2' To 'Crazy Rich Asians'
Even if you think that summer is all about spending more time outdoors in the warmer temperatures, you might want to re-think your plans. The movies coming out during summer 2018 are so exciting, that it might end up being more of a season spent indoors, in a dimly lit theater. Between the air conditioning and the amazing lineup of film heading your way, you will probably happily spend the June, July, and August at the movies.
The movies coming out this summer range from tear-jerker documentaries to long-awaited installments to beloved franchises. While the former will be equally worth seeing, the latter is possibly even a greater reason for celebration. You'll get to see a new Star Wars movie, an Incredibles installment, the Jurassic World sequel, a Mission Impossible sequel, an Ant-Man sequel, The Equalizer 2, and a Mamma Mia! sequel.
Before you shake your head in disappointment over Hollywood's inability to produce new ideas, don't worry, because there are plenty of those. That includes a film that Melissa McCarthy co-wrote, which is a major reason to get excited, as well as the super exciting all-female Ocean's 8. Get ready, because summer 2018, it seems, will be the summer of movies.
