When Disney announced that they were working on “Cars 3,” there were mixed reviews from fans that wanted Disney to leave the franchise alone. However, no one can resist the magic of another Disney sequel. In his return to the big screen, experienced race car Lightning McQueen must go up against some younger, more technologically advanced rivals. In the third addition to the “Cars” franchise, McQueen must prove that he is still number one on the track.
In this war movie centered around World War II’s Battle of Dunkirk, soldiers from all the Allied forces must come together to survive. “Dunkirk” sheds light on the untold story of the civilians that risked their lives to help rescue trapped soldiers. With a star-studded cast and the director of “The Dark Knight” trilogy, Christopher Nolan, “Dunkirk” is sure to stun the big screen with the retelling of one of the bloodiest battles in human history.
Remaking a television show into a movie is never easy in Hollywood, but director Seth Gordon is hoping to introduce “Baywatch” to a younger audience. The film adaptation of the long-running television series stars Dwayne Johnson as the head lifeguard of the Baywatch division. When a new recruit comes aboard (Zac Efron), they must learn how to work together to keep their beach safe from new threats.
The long awaited “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is the first Spider-Man film featuring a new Peter Parker, Tom Holland, who we recently saw in “Captain America: Civil War,” introducing the world to the new face of a classic hero. What sets this Spider-Man apart from all the others is that our hero is still in high school. Being a younger superhero comes with a whole new set of problems, including teen crushes and bullies. Tony Stark also makes an appearance as Parker’s mentor, leading him on the right path and teaching him how to handle fighting evil while still making it to first period on time.
