Undoubtedly one of the most anticipated movies this summer. Pixar’s latest animated film tells us the story of Buzz Lightyear – the beloved toy from 1995’s Toy Story. Now, the audience will get to see the “live-action” universe in which the Buzz figure was based on. The movie will also lean into the idea that it was an 80’s movie that Andy was obsessed with. 

Chris Evans voices the iconic animation character. Evans even manages to portray a less campy version than his predecessors while maintaining Buzz Lightyear’s self-regard. However, encounters with his nemesis, Emperor Zurg, and a talking robot cat while stranded on an alien planet will soon change that.  

The Black Phone, directed by Scott Derrickson

The movie is an adaptation of Joe Hill’s novella by the same name. Hill, who’s the son of Stephen King, has successfully followed his father’s footsteps and managed to create his own legacy of unsettling horror stories. The director, Scott Derrickson, is the man behind one of the scariest movies of the last ten years, and he pulls no punches in his latest work. 

Set in the 70’s, the movie tells the story of a serial killer known as The Grabber who has been abducting children. While captive, his most recent victim discovers he can connect with the ghosts of the serial killer’s previous abductions through a black phone. With their help, he must find a way to escape and bring the criminal to justice.

Thor: Love and Thunder, directed by Taika Waititi

After Thor: Ragnarok’s immense success, Waititi returns to the director’s chair for Thor: Love and Thunder. The movie follows the events after Avengers: Endgame and is based on Jason Aaron’s renowned comic book run. Natalie Portman is back as Jane Foster and, as the surprisingly 80’s-theme trailer revealed, The Mighty Thor. Christian Bale makes his debut in the Marvel universe as Gorr the God Butcher, the movie’s primary villain.

Also returning are some of Thor: Ragnarok’s beloved characters like Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster. Marvel enthusiasts will be glad to know that The Guardians of the Galaxy will also be making an appearance.
