Samantha Kaczala | Interrobang | Lifestyles | June 1st, 2018




Get ready students because summer is here and with it, a whole slew of new movies to enjoy this break. Bonus, there are cheap ways to buy a ticket as a Fanshawe student. The Biz Booth at the London main campus has Imagine Cinema tickets for specific movies on sale typically on Mondays unless otherwise stated. Pricing is $4 for students and $8 for guests to watch the “First Run Film” on Wednesdays at the theatre.

The following is a list of highly anticipated movies coming out this summer that you won’t want to miss.

Action Point

In theatres: June 1 | First Run Film: June 6

A thrill ride of daredevil stunts that end hilariously badly, Action Point is the tale of D.C. (Johnny Knoxville) who owns the least safe amusement park in the world. Safety and rules mean about zilch, with fun being the number one goal above all else. Just when D.C.’s daughter Boogie comes to visit, another amusement park moves to town, this one with actual working and safe rides. The competition becomes fierce, with Action Point slowly losing the battle. In a desperate attempt to save his park, D.C. and his crazy crew will have to think of the wildest and most dare defining things in order to save Action Point.

Ocean’s 8

In theatres: June 8 | First Run Film: June 13

Five years, eight month and 12 days and counting is how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) has been waiting and planning to pull off the biggest heist of her life. Fresh out of jail, Debbie walks a similar path to her brother Danny Ocean, from Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13. Debbie collects a crew of the best women with the skills she’ll need to make her plan fruition. The target will definitely be no cakewalk, as they are targeting a necklace worth more than $150 million, that’s adorning the neck of a famous celebrity at New York’s annual Met Gala. Expect to see comedic quips and complex tricks that will bring nostalgia to Ocean’s series fans.

Tag

In theatres: June 15 | First Run Film: June 20

This film is based on a true story about a group of friends that have been in an endless game of tag for the last 30 years. Every time May rolls around, the friends will stop at nothing to tag the others. No matter if it interferes with relationships, jobs, or during special events, “it” will always try to tag the others. But this year is different. The group’s undefeated, never-once-touched, player is getting married in May. The others plan to take advantage of this fact. They think he is going to make for an easy target, but he knows what they are up to… and he’s prepared to outmaneuver and out run them in the ultimate game of “tag.”

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

In theatres: June 22 | First Run Film: June 27

When the dinosaurs escaped their containment on the resort island of Jurassic World, no human has stepped foot there since then. Now, the dinosaurs are in peril, the once dormant volcano becoming active and threatening to wipe them off the planet once more. Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) return to the island once more on a mission to save as many dinosaurs as they can, including finding Blue, an unique lead raptor. But active volcanos may not be the only threat to these dinosaurs. Owen and Claire discover that a conspiracy hides in the shadows, one that would use the dinosaurs to set the world in utter chaos. The latest installment to the Jurassic franchise is expected to leave viewers with a new take on the series, leaving the island behind to explore the outside world interaction with the viscous dinosaurs, giving this movie a somewhat unique theme compared to its predecessors.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

In theatres: July 6 | First Run Film: July 11

After the events of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) struggles to put back together the pieces of his family life and responsibilities as Ant-Man.

An enemy is on the loose, with technology stolen from Dr. Pym, harnessing it for their own nefarious deeds. Ant-man must join forces with Hope, as the Wasp, to save the world once more from peril.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
