Summer is so close we can taste it, and that means Hollywood’s big budget movies are ready to blast their way into theaters.
Admittedly, we’ll be spending many of the long hot summer days at day parties, happy hours or on beaches. However, when the heat becomes a bit too much, it’s always nice to cool off in the movie theater. With an all-new sexy and shirtless Baywatch team ready to heat up the beach, a few Marvel superheroes willing to invite us into a new galaxy, and some of our favorite ladies taking a girl’s trip, there is something for everyone this summer.
Here are 9 summer blockbusters that will set movie screens ablaze.
