Last year it was The Shallows, this year it's 47 Meters Down. If shark attack movies are your thing, this will be the one to see this year.

Runtime: 2hrs, 20mins  
Biography, Drama, Music
R
Trailer

Starring: Demetrius Shipp Jr., Danai Gurira, Kat Graham




Despite being delayed for years due to litigation, All Eyez on Me - titled after his 1996 album of the same name - finally arrives to tell the biographical story Tupac Shakur.

Cars 3

Directed by: Brian Fee  
Runtime: 1hr, 49mins  
Animation, Adventure, Comedy
G
Trailer

Starring: Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Chris Cooper, Nathan Fillion, Larry the Cable Guy, Armie Hammer, Tony Shalhoub, Kerry Washington



If I'm being completely honest, the Cars series is maybe the only series from Pixar that I haven't seen and continue to have no interest in seeing. It's not that the series hasn't done well enough commercially to warrant another film, but Cars 2 is generally accepted as Pixar's worst film. Cars 3 takes on a tonal shift and the choice has earned them higher review scores and I'm sure it'll be one of the better family friendly outings this summer, but I think I'll still sit this one out.


__________




Rough Night

Directed by: Lucia Aniello  
Runtime: 1hr, 41mins  
Comedy
R
Trailer

Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Zoë Kravitz, Kate McKinnon, Demi Moore




I suspect both of the big, summer, R-rated, girls-night-out comedies - Rough Night and Girls Trip - will do pretty well at the box office. Both have likable casts and who doesn't like the occasional over-the-top party comedy?
