3 Movies to Catch This Summer 2020


While summer kicks into gear and everything starting to open back up, there are some great movies coming out. If Covid-19 is an issue through the summer, we might see a national restoration to the drive-in theatre industry. Below is a list of the three movies you should catch this summer.


At the bottom of this article, we included a list of streaming releases if you don’t want to go to the movie theatre this summer.

Tenet

With Christopher Nolan at the helm of this production, director of the Batman Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar, and Dunkirk, this film stars John Christopher Washington, Robert Pattinson, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.


Any information regarding the plot of the film has been kept largely under wraps, and anything we know has come from leaks and interviews. From the trailer, we can see the Nolan-esque defying of gravity and time, as well as talk of a World War 3--but no plot you can pin down.


The official synopsis is “an action epic film evolving from the world of international espionage”--which doesn’t tell us much. But you can catch Tenet on its release date of July 17, 2020.

Mulan

Disney’s live-action adaptation of the animated Mulan is set to premiere nationwide this summer, July 24th. Niki Caro directed the film, a New Zealand filmmaker behind The Zookeeper’s Wife and North Country.


In the film, the titular character Hua Mulan dresses like a man to defend China from Northern invader, who Disney promotes as a character who “is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.”

Bill & Ted Face the Music

The long-awaited sequel to the Bill and Ted movies of the early 90s, this film is set to release on August 1st this summer. Directed by Dean Parisot, and starring Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, and Samara Weaving, Bill & Ted Face the Music is the third edition to the science fiction comedy saga.


This summer, Once told they'd save the universe during a time-traveling adventure, 2 would-be rockers from San Dimas, California find themselves as middle-aged dads still trying to crank out a hit song and fulfill their destiny. Check out the first look here.
