The season of the blockbuster has arrived! Celebrate, cinephiles with the minds of teenage boys! Flawlessly constructed jokes aside, this summer looks set to bring back some oldies but goodies, as well as our seasonal dose of Superhero films. Between Jurassic Park, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Poltergeist and Mad Max, most of us will be setting up tents in our local cinemas.
So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.
