The 2015 summer movie season has officially begun!
With that in mind, some CSUSB students are excited with anticipation to see upcoming films.
On June 12, the “Jurassic Park” we were introduced to in 1993 will reopen its gates, and we will be introduced to new dinosaurs on the island Isla Nublar in the all new Jurassic World.
After 10 years of operation in the new park, the visitor ratings begin to decline and with that, new attractions are created to re-spark the visitor’s interest.
Chris Pratt will star as Owen Grady, a man who has a way of communicating with the vicious Velociraptors and Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire, who is the park’s operation manager.
I am personally excited to see this film after growing up with all three installments of Jurassic Park and can’t wait to see the new visuals it has to offer.
Another film that l look forward to seeing is Disney Pixar’s “Inside Out,” that is set to be released on June 19.
The movie focuses on young Riley who moves to a new home with her parents.
In the process of her new life, her emotions are plunged into chaos as they compete to control her mind.
The emotions inside her brain are joy, fear, anger, disgust, and sadness.
Comedians Amy Poehler, Bill Hader and Mindy Kaling are voices for three of the emotions.
“Disney and Pixar studios have always found ways for their films to impact not only their younger audience but adults as well,” said student Janette Palomo.
“This film has a very interesting concept and I am looking forward to seeing it,” she continued.
Every summer we can anticipate a Marvel film and this season they will deliver with two.
“Ant-Man” will star Paul Rudd as Scott Lang who is able to shrink in scale but increase in strength in his armed super-suit.
In order to help his mentor Dr. Hank Pym, Scott must embrace his inner hero and help him plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
“Paul Rudd can do no wrong. He is a great comedic actor who is now going to jump into the stratosphere of popularity,” said student Tim Sanders.
“Ant-Man” shrinks onto the big screen July 17.
Danger allures in the second Marvel film “Fantastic Four,” where four young outsiders teleport to an alternate universe where their appearance becomes altered in shocking ways.
The four must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a friend who has turned against them.
“Compared to the previous cartoony versions, the new ‘Fantastic Four’ looks more dark and serious which is awesome! I’m all for it,” said student Oscar Saldana.
Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, The Thing and The Human Torch are cast with some young familiar faces and will appear on August 7.
So grab your friends, your popcorn and ICEE and enjoy your summer gazing up at the big screen.
