In the middle month of the summer we have all the blockbuster movies coming out. There is one giant movie coming out each week that will make it fun to see which movie comes out on top of the box office week to week.
What makes this month stick out for blockbusters is that there is a healthy mix of sequels and original films. There are four sequels compared to six non-sequels. Of course, the sequels have the slight advantage considering that they are sequels to Terminator, Magic Mike, Despicable Me, and Mission Impossible. Each one of these movies have strong fan bases that will want to see these sequels (or prequels) over and over again.
For original movies, Ant-Man leads the charge as we get another story from the Marvel Universe. Pixels is going to be a fan favorite with Amy Shcumer’s Trainwreck will likely be the dark horse of the month.
There are eleven top movies that are set to come out this month. You can see them by looking below.
