Fargo Flicks: Summer Blockbusters

This summer marks plenty of action and comedy for all fans. Blockbuster hits will make their way to the theater when superheroes and funny fish dominate the screen.

X-Men: Apocalypse – May 27th

Just a few weeks after the school year ends, the X-Men are back with the end of the world imminent. This is the third in the reboot of the X-Men series, directed by Bryan Singer. Many of the fan favorites are back, including Magneto, Storm and, of course, Professor X.

The plot follows the first mutant in existence, called En Sabah Nur or “Apocalypse,” as he awakens from a thousand year sleep. Apocalypse recruits four followers to help him destroy humanity and rebuild the world to his liking. Unsurprisingly, the X-Men fight back in an effort to save the world.

A-list celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne and Michael Fassbender star in this film.

For anyone who loves superhero movies, this one seems to have it all, from action and heroism to death and destruction.

Finding Dory – June 17th

Nostalgia takes tangible form in this movie, with the anticipated “Finding Nemo” sequel thirteen years in the making.

When Dory suddenly remembers her family, she enlists the help of her friends to search for them. This movie should give us a lot of fun laughs and touching scenes, making it a must for anyone who liked the prequel.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates – July 8th

Zac Efron, Adam Devine, Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick star in this raunchy comedy where Mike and Dave (Efron and Devine, respectively) are looking for classy dates for their sister’s wedding.

Plaza and Kendrick don’t exactly make the classiest impression and hilarity ensues as Mike and Dave try to manage their dates.

“Mike and Dave” will include plenty of crude humor and acting from some of our faves, making it a great summer flick.

Suicide Squad – August 5th

The superhero movie gets turned on its head when this film comes out near the end of the summer.

The villains take over the roles of the heroes, making a special task force under the tight control of Amanda Waller (played by Viola Davis.) The large amalgamation of baddies will carry out a special mission to take down the Joker, which will likely get them killed.

Superstar actors Will Smith, Jared Leto, Cara Delevingne and Margot Robbie act in major roles, promising some solid performances. Crazy twists and deadly antics are a must, so action fans should definitely go opening day.
