You've waited through one cold, harsh winter this year, but the time for summer movie season has arrived, as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 kicks off the next four months of gargantuan blockbusters starting this weekend. And in 2014, there are far too many movies you simply cannot miss. From Peter Parker's greatest battle yet, to the return of an iconic Japanese monster, to a dark fairy with a heart of stone, to four mutant brothers who rise up out of the sewer to save New York City, summer 2014 promises to be one of the biggest and best yet. Get out your scorecards and your personal calendar. You're going to want to make sure you have your money saved up, and all that time off requested. Because these are the 14 movies everyone is going to be talking about throughout August, and you don't want to be left out of the conversation!
Tagline: His Greatest Battle Begins.
Release Date: May 2
Why You Can't Miss It: We've always known that Spider-Man's most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin. It's great to be Spider-Man. For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro, Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.
There you have it. Those are the biggest movies coming out this summer. Are you excited? Do you feel shortchanged by Hollywood? Is there anything that truly excites you arriving in the next four months? Let us know!
