This female-led spinoff of George Clooney’s popular Ocean’s Eleven trilogy stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, and Anne Hathaway. Instead of robbing a Las Vegas casino, however, Debbie Ocean, played by Bullock, assembles a team to pull of an incredibly risky heist: robbing the Met Gala in New York City. They plan to target a celebrity and the Met’s curator, echoing the premise of the first Ocean’s film. Fans of the original series can keep their eyes peeled for Matt Damon and Carl Reiner to briefly reprise their roles from the original Ocean’s trilogy.

If you are looking for summer 2018 movies that can terrify you, you cannot miss Hereditary. Early reviews have called it the scariest movie of the year, as a matriarch’s ancestry begins to haunt her family. Featuring an impressive cast, including Toni Collette and Gabriel Byrne, the film was initially screened at Sundance before it was picked up for wider release. The supernatural force left behind after the death of the matriarch focuses on a teenage girl, the daughter of Collette’s Annie. The film currently has a rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, largely thanks to its success at Sundance.

After 14 long years, the Incredibles finally return to the big screen.
