10 movies you absolutely must see this summer, from Avengers to young Han Solo
It's pretty much impossible to not find something to watch at the movies this summer, with a season boasting A-list superheroes, intergalactic smugglers, unleashed dinosaurs, catchy ABBA songs and Tom Cruise's superspy shenanigans.
Here are the 10 films, from action flicks to fright fests, that you're absolutely going to want to see between now and Labor Day:
'Avengers: Infinity War' (April 27)
Stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chadwick Boseman
Directors: Anthony and Joe Russo
The skinny: Another Avengers movie means another world-shattering conflict and another appearance by everyone's favorite playboy genius, Tony Stark. There's some big moving and shaking going on and I'm basically at this point just happily suiting up and showing up and trusting the process, says Downey, playing Stark and his alter ego Iron Man for the ninth time. But the coming of the cosmic supervillain Thanos (Josh Brolin) gives the Avengers their toughest test yet. The only thing we haven't tried is someone who is unbeatable, Downey says. For me, it's really basic in my own midlife existential crisis as usual. I just go, 'There it is, no one here gets out alive.' It's like a Jim Morrison lyric.
