Sizzling Summer Movies

With summer just around the corner, many students are probably stressing over the many months of summer school or summer homework they will have, while others have absolutely nothing to do. Luckily for all, this summer will be jam-packed with some of the most highly anticipated movies of the year that cannot be missed.
