Of course, blockbusters sprout up all throughout the year, with movies like The Divergent Series: Insurgent and Furious 7 setting the box office on fire even before the "official" summer movie season kicks off...But the four-month period between May and August is simply jam-packed with big-budget tentpoles, outlandish comedies and even a few memorable indie dramas. Before you start snatching up tickets to your favorite summer movies, we have a handy guide breaking down all of the major studio blockbusters, and even a few independent flicks that have the potential to break out into the mainstream. Here our the 35 movies you simply can't miss this summer!
1Avengers: Age of Ultron - May 1
Though Blumhouse Productions has creatively branched out in recent years with Oscar nominee Whiplash and steamy thriller The Boy Next Door, the studio is still far better known for its micro-budget horror affairs, like Paranormal Activity, Insidious and Sinister. And by the looks of it, Blumhouse has another major hit on its hands this summer, with the wide release of a tiny horror pic called The Gallows.
Lacking an established director or any palpable star power (unlike the studio’s recent disappointment The Lazarus Effect), the pic is flying way under the radar in a summer season packed with trailer-happy blockbusters. And that may be what ensures its success.
Word-of-mouth is what could really send The Gallows soaring into the stratosphere, and based on the terrifying first teaser for the high school-set horror, it’s going to build up quite a lot in the weeks leading up to its release. »

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and starring Addison Timlin, Travis Tope, Gary Cole, Joshua Leonard, Anthony Anderson, Denis O’Hare, Edward Herrmann and Veronica Cartwright, the Jason Blum-produced The Town That Dreaded Sundown is a remake of the seventies horror of the same name is inspired by the unsolved ‘Moonlight Murders’ that took place in the American border town of Texarkana in 1946.
Set in a world where the original film exists and is very much part of the public consciousness, The Town That Dreaded Sundown picks up 65 years later, where the quiet streets of Texarkana are once more plagued by a masked maniac who bears a striking resemblance to the same Phantom Killer who wreaked havoc decades earlier. Is it a copycat crime? Has someone seen the original film too many times, or is it something even more sinister? A lonely high school (Addison Timlin), with dark secrets of her own, »
The Gallows is another horror film from Blumhouse Productions. Steeped in mystery, a teaser trailer has been released for the film. The clip shows a hangman, a noose and a terrified young woman. The Gallows stars Cassidy Gifford, Pfeifer Brown and Ryan Shoos. The film was developed by Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing. The blood red infused trailer lies below. Only a few story details have been released. From the synopsis, a tragedy has taken place in a small town. 20 years later, that tragedy is replayed in a small production. But, something or someone is critical of this new production and out for blood. Blumhouse Productions, from Jason Blum, continues to create low budget horror. This production house has completed such hits as The Purge, Sinister and the Paranormal Activity series of films. Will The Gallows be another hit? Fans can decide for themselves on July 10th, 2015, when the film reaches theatres. »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.
From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.
Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

Good Kill, 2014.
Written and Directed by Andrew Niccol.
A family man begins to question the ethics of his job as a drone pilot.
Many of the scenes are emotionless, repetitive and detached, set in a claustrophobic room without windows. These scenes involve the audience looking at monitors, switches and controllers, and are filmed mostly in medium or close shots of the actors’ faces. In most films this would perhaps be disagreeable and boring, but in Good Kill they are exactly what make the film work. This is modern warfare 7000 miles away from the combat zone.
In his third collaboration with director Andrew Niccol, Ethan Hawke plays Tom Egan, a Us Airforce drone pilot who is on the brink of breaking point. Through the day to day life of Egan, Niccol’s film is rewarding and stakes its »

Sinister came out in 2012, earning $77.7 million worldwide on a $3 million budget. In no way surprising we now have a Sinister 2 and this is the first trailer for it. I’ve apparently somehow missed Sinister, despite it being right up my alley and starring Ethan Hawke. Now if you’re in my shoes then […]
Read Bughuul is back in Sinister 2 on Filmonic.
We recently showed you the WonderCon teaser trailer for the upcoming "Sinister" sequel. And now we have the full-length trailer for the horror film. Check it out below. Plot: In the aftermath of the shocking events in "Sinister," a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon) and her 9-year-old twin sons (Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death as the evil spirit of Buhguul continues to spread with frightening intensity.

The 2012 horror hit Sinister's getting a sequel - and here's the first full trailer to prove it...
The previous film was about an unsavoury crime writer (Hawke) who became obsessed with some gory 8mm film footage he finds in his attic. Oh, and there was the small detail he'd neglected to tell his family: the house he'd moved them into was the scene of some hideous murders a few years before.
The sequel, directed by Ciaran Foy and written by Derrickson and C Robert Cargill, appears to tell its story from a child's perspective, as the spooky tapes and shadowy figures from the original Sinister make a reappearance in another family home. You can see the first full trailer below, which kicks off »
Update: Find the full trailer below. Horror movies can be a very complicated business for the very simple reason that fear is always so subjective. One person can see something and it barely elevates their heart rate, but that same movie can cause someone else to lose sleep for days on end. Having said that, we can all agree the first Sinister is genuinely scary, right? Even if the story of a crime novelist who moves his family into a murdered family's house so that he can write his big comeback book doesn't get to you, director Scott Derrickson's scares are so well crafted they have to earn some kind of physiological response while watching them. They just have to, and I suspect anyone who says otherwise is a bit of a fibber. Now having said all of that, Sinister...

From the producer of recent horror hits Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and The Purge comes the follow-up to 2012’s Sinister. Boasting a plot that included snuff movies of families being murdered and the pagan Babylonian deity Bughuul, Sinister scared its audience into submission and banked enough money at the box office to warrant a sequel.
This August, Ethan Hawke gets replaced by indie regular Shannyn Sossamon (40 Days and 40 Nights, A Knight’s Tale) as the head of the family up against the Bogeyman. In the film, Courtney (Sossamon) and her twin sons become marked for death by Bughuul, much like Hawke and his brood in Sinister.
Will Courtney and her two boys survive the film?
Don’t count on it.
Check out the poster and trailer for Sinister 2 below, and make sure to catch it in theatres this August.

It’s official, the first full trailer for Sinister 2 has dropped and holy shit does it look intense. It seems to really put the kids in the forefront and explains a lot about why things in the first film happened the way they did,..all while providing some creepy as hell scares too. Can there ever be enough Shannyn Sossamon? Well, the answer is a big, resounding No. Check the official trailer out Now!!
“The sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit horror movie. In the aftermath of the shocking events in “Sinister,” a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of “Wayward Pines”) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life twins Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death as the evil spirit of Bughuul continues to spread with frightening intensity.”

A young family finds themselves targeted by a demonic presence in the first trailer for Sinister 2, which is set to hit theaters nationwide August 21. While most of the cast members from the 2012 thriller Sinister are not back for the sequel, except for James Ransone as "Deputy So and So," this story follows a new family that is targeted by The Bughuul. Will this sequel be able to match the intensity of the original?
In the aftermath of the shocking events in Sinister, a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of Wayward Pines) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life twins Robert Sloan and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death as the evil spirit of Bughuul continues to spread with frightening intensity. Scott Derrickson, who directed the original Sinister, wrote the script with his Sinister co-writer C. Robert Cargill. Ciaran Foy (Citadel) takes the helm for this thrilling »
Hot on the heels of yesterday’s blood-curdling poster is the very first trailer for Ciaran Foy’s Sinister 2, which witnesses the return of the malevolent demon Bughuul for another bout of supernatural horror.
Boasting a decidedly retro theme, the follow-up once again orbits around disturbing reels of celluloid that appear to harbor a very dark and sinister – no pun intended – brand of evil. Having taken control at the helm following Scott Derrickson’s move to Marvel to take the reigns of Doctor Strange, Foy will be working on a script based from Derrickson himself and C. Robert Cargill, who both worked on the original 2012 sleeper hit.
In lieu of Ethan Hawke’s writer and his tortured family, Sinister 2 will shift the focus to a new group; specifically, a mother of two who soon finds that her humble abode is the between the crosshairs of evil. Essentially a revised take on the boogeyman, »

The trailer gives this sequel a slightly different tone. Definitely more in keeping with the atmosphere we saw in Citadel. Being a huge fan of the first, I'm very curious to check this out.
