June 22, 2018
PG-13
Action, Sci-Fi, Adventure

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

This is the fifth overall installment in the popular Jurassic Park franchise, which began with Steven Spielberg's seminal film in 1993. Fallen Kingdom is the sequel to 2015's Jurassic World, which broke box office records upon its release that summer. The movie ended up grossing more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office, all but guaranteeing a followup would be made eventually. The filmmakers have said Fallen Kingdom is the second installment of a new trilogy.

Incredibles 2 (2018)

PG
Action, Adventure, Animation

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in Incredibles 2 – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

This is the long-awaited sequel to Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles, the 2004 Oscar-winning film that received widespread critical praise and earned $261.4 million at the domestic box office. The film is arriving at the peak of superhero movie popularity, which gave writer/director Brad Bird a challenge while crafting the narrative. Despite the extensive gap between installments in this franchise, Incredibles 2 picks up right from where the first left off, meaning there is no time jump.

Ocean's 8/Ocean's Eight (2018)

Crime

Debbie Ocean gathers a crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City's yearly Met Gala.

This film is billed as a continuation of the Ocean's Eleven franchise from director Steven Soderbergh that began back in 2001. The trilogy starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon (among others) proved to be very successful, grossing over $1 billion worldwide collectively. Ocean's Eight looks to follow a similar formula, only with the spin that the crew of thieves is all-female. Sandra Bullock stars as Debbie Ocean, sister of Clooney's Danny, and works with a crew of other criminals to get the job done.

Right now, it is unknown if there will be sequels, though that is likely if the film proves to be successful,

Sicario: Day of the Soldado/Sicario 2 (2018)

R
Crime, Drama, Thriller

The drug war on the US-Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro.

This is the sequel to the hard-hitting crime drama Sicario, which was directed by Denis Villeneuve and released in 2015. Though the original was a modest box office success ($84.8 million worldwide), the enthusiastic response led to the creation of a followup. Soldado was first announced in 2015, and the plan was for the film to center around Benicio del Toro's acclaimed hitman character. The creative team has described this as a "standalone spinoff" as opposed to a sequel or prequel, fleshing out the Sicario universe. Villeneuve was unable to return to direct due to his commitment to Blade Runner 2049. There has been talk about a third film.

For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry: “You’re It!” This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready.

Based on a true story, the New Line Cinema comedy Tag shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.
