Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

July 7, 2017
PG-13
Action, Sci-Fi, Adventure

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine -- distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.

Spider-Man's first appearance was in Amazing Fantasy #16 in August 1962 and the web head is now arguably Marvel's most popular character. Originally created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Spider-Man has several comics titles of his own, including The Amazing Spider-Man, The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Ultimate Spider-Man. Your Friendly Neighborhood has been featured in several forms of media such as video games and an animated television show. Spider-Man's first live-action film was released in 2002 and launched a trilogy that ended in 2007. Sony rebooted the property in 2012 and had plans for an Amazing Spider-Man shared universe, but poor reception to the 2014 sequel killed the franchise. Sony then struck a deal with Marvel Studios and Tom Holland portrayed the character in a small role for Captain America: Civil War.

Spider-Man will also be in Avengers: Infinity War. A Homecoming sequel is eyeing a July 2019 release date.

War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)

July 14, 2017
PG-13
Action, Drama, Sci-Fi

Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both of their species and the future of the planet.

This is the third installment of the rebooted Planet of the Apes film series that started in 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The franchise originally began in 1968 with Planet of the Apes, which was renowned for its twist ending. That movie spawned four additional sequels, ending with Battle for the Planet of the Apes. In 2001, director Tim Burton released a remake of the first movie with the hopes of launching a new series, but the film's troubled production and poor reception led to Fox temporarily placing the franchise on hold. Ten years later, the studio brought Apes back with motion-capture guru Andy Serkis as the lead chimp Caesar, and War's two predecessors have gone on to earn much critical acclaim for their storytelling and visual effects.

War for the Planet of the Apes serves as the end of Caesar's story, but the producers intend to keep the series going for at least another film.
