Get ready get set…. Summer is just around the corner. What will the movies of 2018 offer us, thrills, romance, comedy, terror? These are just a few classics that scream summer for me.
- Jaws (1975) Will you ever swim in the ocean without just a little fear of what’s just below you? I know that I love the water but there will always be that question.
- Dirty Dancing (1987) young love, summer vacations, and “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” How many people tried that water lift with their boyfriends in some body of water, and failed miserably. RIP Patrick Swayze!
- Weekend at Bernie’s (1989) A weekend at the bosses beach house for an epic party! Yes please, what ensues once the guest arrives is a calamity of events with one happy laid back corpse.
- I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) 4th of July will not be the same for these 4 teens. This original movie of a hit and run accident caused by drinking and merriment spawned two more sequels, and contemporary slasher films were on the rise again.
So far on tap for the Summer of 2018, we have Marvel comic super hero’s leading the way. Star Wars will continue its saga, and the Incredibles 2 another sequel will be the season’s first animated release. And who said the dinosaurs are extinct, they seem to be keeping Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom alive and well in theaters this summer. Marvel hits again with Ant Man & the Wasp in July alongside the second animated film Hotel Transylvania3: Summer Vacation.
This list is growing long and the summer will seem all too short. Enjoy every moment of your summer, outside, under the stars at your local Drive In Theaters!
What will your summer’s most memorable event be?
