Summer 2019 Movies Not to Miss
This summer you probably have a list of things you want to do. Go to the lake. Eat soft ice cream. Play some mini golf. Take a bike ride. After all, summer is all about being outside and enjoying the great weather.
But, if a rainy day comes along or the temperature is so hot that you can’t imagine spending another minute outside, then head to the movie theater. Summer is also the season of blockbusters! This summer should be no exception!
Godzilla: King of Monsters (May 31st)
If you love monster movies and were a fan of the 2014 Godzilla movie, then you are looking forward to this sequel. Stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, and Sally Hawkins will all face off against Godzilla, plus a few other mighty monsters.
Rocketman (May 31st)
Musical biopics are very popular right now and the next one to be released is “Rocketman.” This movie tells the story of Elton John from his life as a child musical prodigy to his battle with addiction to his prolific musical career.
