With the end of the semester rapidly approaching, summer is right around the corner, and with summer comes the summer movie season. Lots of movies are coming out this summer with a large variety of different titles so there is bound to be one that everyone. Here are just a few of the titles that are coming out this summer that we at the Comenian are excited to see released. If there’s a film you think we are missing then please comment below a film you’re excited for this summer.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Starting our summer off, be on the lookout for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.” The third and final of James Gunn’s Guardians films, trailers and clips look to be hinting at the film being an emotional rollercoaster for the last entry in the trilogy, with Gunn saying that it will be the last time we see some of these characters. While Marvel has been quite hit or miss in recent years compared to their previous unrivaled success, early reviews from the film’s European premiere in Paris last week have been overwhelmingly positive and say that it is worth the nearly seven-year wait. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will fly into theaters and IMAX on May 5.

Book Club: The Next Chapter

After 80 for Brady earlier this year, this marks a second comedy film made for wine moms releasing in 2023, a huge step up from the 0 last year (remember, we said this list has something for everyone). In a summer full of action blockbusters and children’s films, “Book Club: The Next Chapter” looks to fill the role of the summer comedy and aims for an older audience than some of the other films on this list do. Book Club: The Next Chapter releases on May 12th in theaters.

Fast X

Racing to return to the theaters again after the success of Fast 9 comes “Fast X,” the next and latest installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise. Fans of the franchise should be excited to see the return of Jason Statham to the series after being absent for 9, and should also be prepared for things to be more high stakes this time as the franchise nears the end. Fast 11 is expected to be the final film in the Fast and the Furious franchise. Fast X will be supercharging into theaters and Imax on May 19th.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Swinging into theaters to start off June is “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.” The film is a direct continuation of the 2018 Best Animated Picture winner “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” The film looks to be a continuation of the strong work of producers Phill Lord and Christopher Miller, who also made “The Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street,” “Mitchells vs the Machines,” and the “Little Big Planet” games. For fans of the first film, it looks like the sequel plans to deliver more with the return of characters like Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on June 2.

The Boogeyman

Crawling into theaters this summer is another adaptation of the dark mind of Stephen King. “The Boogeyman” looks to be a return to those classic horror stories. Adapted from one of King’s earlier works from 1973, it looks to return to the idea of a straight horror film, and if you’re left craving more horror after “Evil Dead Rises,” then this might be the film for you. The Boogeyman drags itself into theaters on June 2.

Asteroid City

The latest film from artistic director Wes Anderson is “Asteroid City.” The film looks to be in Anderson’s classic style seen in his other movies, such as “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.” The film also continues to have a star-studded cast like Anderson’s previous works starring Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, Scarlett Johansson, Jason Schwartzman, Tony Revolori, Edward Norton, Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, Rita Wilson, Liev Schreiber, and Jeffrey Wright. Asteroid City soars into theaters on June 16.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny

Dr. Jones swings back into theaters for the first time in 15 years, and Harrison Ford returns as Indiana Jones in “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.” With a star-studded cast also including Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelson, as well as directed by James Mangold, the film looks to be a proper sendoff for the character that many fans adore so dearly. Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny cracks into theaters on June 30.


The latest film from legendary director Christopher Nolan, “Oppenheimer” is set to be a blast, literally. The film has gained a lot of traction in pre-release from its amazing cast to how it has apparently used practical effects to create nuclear explosions, a fact that made a joke circulate that Nolan used a real nuclear bomb for the effects. If you want an explosive time at the theaters, look for Oppenheimer blasting into theaters on July 21.


It feels strange to say that I am unironically excited to see “Barbie” in cinemas. From director Greta Gerwig and starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, Barbie looks to be a hilarious movie. The film looks to be also trying to fill the summer comedy role and looks to be taking itself 100% seriously to its source material and like it isn’t holding anything back with its production design and the ridiculousness of the film, which makes it so exciting. Barbie styles its way into theaters on July 21, preparing to battle Oppenheimer in theaters for which film will be king on July 21.
