Top 5 movies to see this August

#5 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Starring: Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner
Out: August 1st

In this reboot, we meet back up with the turtles as they once again try and take down Shredder. It looks like they are going for CGI looking turtles (that look a little freaky) but with Michael Bay as producer you know you will be in for an entertaining ride. The only question is will they capture what made them so popular in the 90’s and again in 2010’s or will they flop just like so many other reboots that were done?

#4 – Let’s Be Cops
Starring: Damon Wayans Jr., Jake Johnson, Nina Dobrev
Out: August 13th

Big comedic movie that will be the movie that you are going to want to watch with your friends this month. While the premise is a little ridiculous (two average joe’s just dressing up as cops and everyone believing that they are) it’s all apart of the comedy of the movie. Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson have great chemistry (for proof watch The New Girl) and you know that this movie will leave you crying in your seat from laughing so hard.

#3 – If I Stay
Starring: Chloe Grace Moretz, Mireille Enos, Liana Liberato
Out: August 22nd

This is a relatively short book from author by Gayle Forman but it took the world by storm, especially for e-book sales. The book has a strong message about life and death and living in the moment. Expect to shed some tears in this movie and be prepared for the ending that will surely rip your heart out (assuming of course they keep true to the book).

#2 – The Giver
Starring: Brenton Thwaites, Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep
Out: August 15th

In the book by Lois Lowry from 1993 that was set in the future. It’s a complicated and complext kind of book that was meant for children, but ended up having people of all ages reading it. They have changed some things already about it (aging Jonas up and aging Rosemary down) but it should still make for an interesting movie especially because Meryl Streep is in it. Let’s face it. She doesn’t do bad movies.

Out: August 15th
#1 – Guardians of the Galaxy
Starring: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista
Out: August 1st

Perhaps not just the top movie to see this month but perhaps the summer. It’s been a slow time at the box office and this movie will look to change that. It should have some big numbers as fans of the Marvel universe will surely give this movie a chance, especially considering there is nothing else coming out. Expect this movie to have all the classic elements of comedy, action, and drama and be a movie that should find it’s fan base rather easy.
