Nearly a hundred films will battle for your attention this summer.1
Sequels, remakes, reimaginings: they all promise something bigger and badder.
Sadly, they’re right. Emphasis on the badder.
So forget the excess and focus on this:
A New Hope: The 13 Must-See Films of the Summer, a list of great films both big and small, available now for your perusal.
Among our summer viewing picks:
A film with the longest and most insane car chase in movie history
A dramatized tête-à-tête with David Foster Wallace
“When Harry Met Sally ... for a--holes”
No size requirement here. We love our blockbusters. We love our indies. You should enjoy both.
So enjoy our guide.
1 For movie studios, summer unofficially started in April with Furious 7 and officially starts May 1 with Avengers: Age of Ultron. Your solstice calendar may differ.
