As we are approaching the summer (hopefully weather wise) that also means that the cinema give us a lot of blockbusters to enjoy and for people to go crazy over. Obviously in terms of cinema this now starts a lot earlier and we have already had some blockbusters head our way and be a massive hit at the box office.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron
This film has already been a massive hit and didn’t do too bad with the critics either 75% on Rotten Tomatoes so certainly a fresh film as well as being the biggest box office seller so far this year! It has faired better on IMDb with a rating of 8.0 which is pretty good, considering people vote for that one!
This is another we have already had hit the cinema and for some strange reason took absolutely loads at the box office for more weeks than I like to think about. Yes I was not a big fan of this film at all, thought it was very average and poor compared to others in the series but the public wanted to see it a lot. Another hit with the critics though with a massive 82% over at Rotten Tomatoes! I must be missing something with this one.
Mad Max: Fury Road
I don’t really have much to say about this film as I really did not fancy watching it at all. I tried to watch one of the original films and I just could not get into it at all. It has an incredible 98% fresh from Rotten Tomatoes. However that still does not make me want to head out and watch it.
Those are the big three films that have already been released. So which other films do we have to look out for to be a box office smash over the summer period? Let’s take a look . . .
The summers big hitter from Pixar which I haven’t really seen much about. But it is due for release this month. I’m not sure if this will do as well as the release of Minions at a similar time. We won’t have long to wait and see!
I think this is going to do incredible at the box office, I have to admit this is the one I am looking forward to the most! Let’s face it I am a 90s kid and loved Jurassic Park since then and can’t wait to see how this one ends up!
Mission Impossible: Rouge Nation
I actually had no idea that this film had been made until a few weeks ago when I saw a trailer. Seems as though no stopping Tom Cruise and you will never count against this one doing well at the box office.
A couple of late showings which may break the summer smashes:
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
A lot of people are very excited about another Star Wars film. I need to re-watch them all I reckon and see if I am a big fan, it’s been a long time and I can’t really remember much about them at all. There’s one thing for sure though Star Wars has a huge fan base and that will make this a huge smash at the box office!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
Let’s face it part 1 of the finale was disappointing and just a filler to reach this dramatic climax. It will be a big hit at the box office and I am really looking forward to seeing it. Just wish they would stop cutting the final films into two parts!
