Summer might be slowly winding down, but there are still plenty of big movies hitting theaters before the end of the season. From superhero flicks to the next dystopian YA film adaptation, these films are ones you’ll definitely want to catch in the coming month. Here are fourteen movies to look out for in theaters this August.
Guardians of the Galaxy
The highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy, directed by James Gunn, stars Chris Pratt as American pilot, Peter Quill, who is hunted down and thrown into an intergalactic prison after stealing a mysterious orb. The film, hitting theaters August 1, also co-stars Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper and already has glowing ratings from critics, earning a 97 percent fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes. In fact, Marvel is so confident in the future success of the project that the studio has already greenlit a sequel set to be released in 2017 — even though the first hasn’t even officially hit theaters yet.
