5 New Movies I’d Like to See in Theaters- Summer 2023
May 19, 2023
The unofficial start to summer is a little over a week away. For me, one of the highlights of summertime is the new movies that are released in theaters. This year is the first year when people can attend movies theaters to watch movies that are available to watch in theaters only. For the past few years, movie goers could see the movies both in theaters and online streaming services.
Sadly, there aren’t many movies that peaked my interest this year. Still, there are five movies that caught my eye and makes me want to watch them. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to go to the theater and see them (Depends on several things, including work and my vehicle’s dependability) but if I can, here are the movies I want to see this summer.
The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid is the first movie to premiere in theaters on this list. I am a huge fan of the live action version of Cinderella, but not so much the live action version of Beauty and the Beast. So I’m curious to see if I’ll like The Little Mermaid.
Indiana Jones and The Dial of Destiny
I grew up watching Indiana Jones movies, but was really disappointed with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. When I heard about The Dial of Destiny, I had mixed feelings. On one hand, I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea to make another Indiana Jones movie. On the other hand, I hope this movie will be more enjoyable than the previous one. Still, I want to see it in theaters.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider Universe
Spider-Man was one of my favorite superheroes growing up, so every time there is a new Spider-Man movie, I always want to see it. The newest Spider-Man movie will be coming out this summer, so I’m very interested in seeing it.
I liked The Flash TV series and was very excited to see The Flash movie. The story peaks my interest and I’m very excited to see it. Even though I’m excited about it, I’m still wish the actor who plays The Flash in the TV series plays The Flash in the movies. I’m afraid I like the idea of continuity of actors across the DC movie and TV show universe too much to ignore it!
The original Haunted Mansion movie wasn’t my favorite Disney movie ever. It was difficult to make sense and it was very complicated. Even though I was young when I watched it for the first time, today I can say that I feel like the movie could’ve been better. Now that Disney has made a new movie about their theme park attraction, I am very hopeful I will like this movie much more than the first one.
