10. Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again
Here we go again. The famous Rom-Com involving Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, and of course the great Meryl Streep is back with its second part. The first one showed how Sophie (Amanda) invited her mother Donna’s (Meryl) three lovers to her wedding and tried to find out who her real father is. In this one, Sophie being pregnant with a child of her own goes out of her way again to find out what Donna did when she was pregnant with her. A wild and light-hearted tale of a girl trying to find her place in a world of men and managing her three relationships all of whom are unique in their own way, watch as we delve into Donna’s past to find out what exactly caused her to be how she is. Mamma Mia, talk about a summer roller coaster ride.

9. Sicario 2: Soldado
The ultimate Mexican assassin Alejandro Gillick (Benicio Del Toro) is back. US Mexican border is filled up to the brim with political tension due to the various drug cartels smuggling terrorists across the border to finance their operations. Mastermind and cunning CIA agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) has again reached out to the infamous Mexican Sicario Alejandro to help him put an end to a major drug operation. Just like the first one, Sicario 2 will undoubtedly prove to be an action-packed adventure with a suspense-thriller theme ringing in the background like the bass guitar in a band. Just like the ultimate hitman you don’t know it’s there until it has left.
Release Date: 29 June, 2018
8. Ocean’s 8
Feminism and gender equality are what’s hot right now. And well, when has Hollywood shown reluctance in riding the high horse? A comedy spinoff of the original Ocean series, it is one of the few women-centric con movies ever created. Consisting of eight most wanted conwomen, Ocean’s 8 brings the likes of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter in one frame. Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), the long-estranged sister of Danny Ocean (George Clooney), gets released from the prison and plans a big heist to get back at her ex-lover. The only problem? The necklace they want to steal is under such high security that even her brother and his infamous team might find it impossible. An addition to a hugely successful franchise, I’ll hope Ocean’s 8 doesn’t end up being another rip-off and manages to stand on its legs.
Release Date: 8 June, 2018
7. Ant-Man and the Wasp
I guess it’s a Marvel summer when all three of the Marvel releases are coming before July ends. The second installment in the Ant-Man standalone series and umpteenth addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ returns with the head hurt Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and his utterly sexy partner Wasp (Evangeline Lily). Watch as Ant-Man struggles with his newfound status of a revolutionary and superhero after Civil War and at the same time teams up with Wasp to unveil the secrets that have been haunting them both for a long time. Alongwith Michael Douglas, this couple is sure to relieve our post Infinity War frenzy after we’ve been smitten by the latest Avengers movie in May. I mean you need something till 2019 arrives, right?
Release Date: 6 July, 2018
6. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
It’s been 24 years since Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park hit the theaters and the screams of angry raptors resonated across the aisles. Now in 2018, the summer is gonna get extra hot with a genetically enhanced T-Rex prowling in the park, in the brand new addition to the Jurassic World series. A continuation and perhaps artistic spinoff of the original Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World released its first installment three years ago with Chriss Pratt and Irrfan Khan in the lead. This year ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ proudly displays the consequences of the first film and continues where it left off. The top attractions of the park have now resorted to their wild methods and tend to eat anything that moves. Will Chris Pratt be able to bring himself out of the deadly island with his own raptors against him?
