Check out some forthcoming film releases to catch this summer.


Thor: Love And Thunder

Attention Marvel movie fans, this one’s for you!


An official synopsis, courtesy of Marvel Studios via TechRadar reads:

Thor: Love and Thunder finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods.

“To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.”

The cast recently gathered on the red carpet at the Dolby Theater ahead of the film’s July 8 release.



Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer performing as costars is reason enough to be excited about this Jordan Peele release. The dark science fiction film has an alien-meets-western vibe and the mysterious film that appears to have extraterrestrial shenanigans afoot.

As previously reported Jordan Peele teased the film saying;

“This film is definitely a ride. The title speaks to the idea of being in tune with what the audience is thinking and feeling in the theater,” said Peele in an interview with EW.

“I know a lot of people who say, when it’s a scary movie, they say, ‘Nope!’ Especially Black audiences, right? We love horror but there’s a skepticism.”

Nope hits theaters on July 22, 2022.
