At the Movies this month we’re starting to see the beginning of all those Summer Blockbusters or at least what should be.
All things considered things are creeping along at the Box Office for some movies that were supposed to be huge. For instance, SOLO: A Star Wars Story was supposed to have a huge opening last month and had a disappointing Box Office World Wide.
However, two weeks ago It was holding on t the number two Box Office Earning bringing in a $15.8 Million behind Ocean’s 8 at $41.6 Million for that weekend.
In case you ave not see SOLO I’ll tell you know the problem is not the movie. After all is was Directed by none other than Ron (Opie Taylor) Howard. In my humble opinion the problem with SOLO is the fact that it had NO bona fied Stars in it. Coupled with the fact that it had little TV Advertising all equates to little Buzz and a poor Box Office.
From Walt Disney Pictures, “Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. The plot explores the early adventures of Han Solo and Chewbacca, as the pair are involved in a heist within the criminal underworld and meet a young Lando Calrissian. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Solo and Chewbacca encounter the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes. Rated: PG-13 (for sequences of sci-fi action/violence). Check It Out. Check It Out.
Just out about a week ago, from Universal Pictures, “Three years since the theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment, Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.”
Rated: PG-13 (for intense sequences of science-fiction violence and peril). Gotta catch this one for sure.

Summer just around the corner even though here in Texas we're already there but what a great time to duck into a nice cool theater and enjoy a great movie. No better time then now with such a variety of flicks to choose from.
If you've been waiting for a movie for grown folks that you may better relate to then I would suggest The Book Club out in theaters now. What a cast of great mature women whom you might or might not remember. We're talking Jane Fonda, Mary Steenburgen(yes, Ted Danson's real life wife), American film actress, director, and producer Diane Keaton, and who could ever forget Candice Bergen the once infamous TV Character better known as Murphy Brown.
From Paramount Pictures; Diane (Diane Keaton) is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage, Vivian (Jane Fonda) enjoys her men with no strings attached, Sharon (Candice Bergen) is still working through her decades-old divorce, and Carol's (Mary Steenburgen) marriage is in a slump after 35 years. The lives of these four lifelong friends are turned upside down after reading the infamous "50 Shades of Grey," catapulting them into a series of outrageous life choices.
Funny movie without any blood and guts and killing, who knew? Check it out.

From Warner Bros. “Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished seven years earlier.
Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father's global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he's truly gone.
Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can't understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad's last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. Now the adventure is on.” Rated PG13 and runs 118 Minutes.
NEXT, A Movie about Tolerance, Acceptance, Forgiveness and LOVE from 20th Century Fox, LOVE SIMON.

Great new movies to experience especially if your a big fan of the Action Genre flicks
A couple that I have recently check out and highly recommend. 1st Liam Neeson is his latest movie called The Commuter. We're talking major suspense, Action and Thrills.
He used to be a cop who left the police force 10 years ago and became a successful insurance broker until now when his company decides to downsize him out of a job. Not wanting to alarm his wife by getting home early he stops off at the old cop's bar for a few drinks to waste the time before he takes the train home. After a while his old partner shows up and they talk about his situation but something else in the bar just doesn't seem right and so it starts.
The train ride home turns into a suspenseful, action packed, nightmare. I've always thought Liam Neeson was the modern day Charles Bronson and he has not disappointed in like roles. The Commuter from Lionsgate, in theaters now, Rated PG and runs 105 minutes. A Must See, Enjoy.
Next, a lady I first saw in the TV Series Person of Interest where she played a Police Woman who then turns detective. You might have also seen her in The Empire and a few other things. Now she proves to us that she's a bona fied Movie Star as well.
I'm talking about Taraji P Henson in Proud Mary. Holy James Bond Batman, Taraji delivers in this Action Packed flick about a Hit Woman who chooses to save a young man she made an orphan after a hit. It's a year later and she sets out to save the young man from the mean streets at a cost that could and almost does cost her, her life.
The action is high and the bullets are flying in Proud Mary from Screen Gems,
Rated R for Violence. A Must See as well
Duck out of a normal day into an adventure At The Movies.
