The summer movie season has started, and a lot of mega-budget films are in the works. This season, we look forward to “The Mummy” and “Pirates 5.” Some movies break the records at the box office, while others remain unnoticed due to their bad script.

‘The Mummy’

From the sweeping sand of Middle East to modern-day London, “The Mummy” is a perfect blend of horrors and thrills. It is one of the most anticipated Hollywood movies. Alex Kurtzman has directed the project, while Christopher McQuarrie and Jon Spaihts serve as screenplay writers.

It is a reboot of “The Mummy” franchise and the first installment in the Universal Monsters.

Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, and Annabelle Wallis are in the leading roles, while Russell Crowe plays the supporting character. The film is scheduled to be released on June 9, 2017.

The story is about Princess Ahmanet, who was buried alive beneath the sand of Egypt. She’s there with her body and soul, and the tomb gets rediscovered by Tom Cruise. Unintentionally, he brings the monster to life, and terrors defy all humanity. Universal Studios first announced the reboot in 2012, but the filming could not begin as the movie went through multiple directors, including Len Wiseman, and Andrés Muschietti.

A few months ago, IMAX released its first teaser trailer with the wrong audios attached. Later on, they replaced it with the correct version and issued DMCA takedown notice to stop it from spreading.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’

Pirates 5” is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. This swashbuckler film is directed by Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning.

It is the fifth installment in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film series, with Jerry Bruckheimer serving as the co-producer.

Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, and Kevin McNally reprise their roles as Jack, Hector, and Joshamee, respectively. The film also has Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, and Kaya Scodelario in the supporting characters.

Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are returning as Will and Elizabeth from “On Stranger Tides.”

The filmmaker cites the previous installment as inspiration for story and tone of the movie. It is scheduled to be released on May 26, 2017. The film opens with a scene of Jack Sparrow who serves an old nemesis, Armando Salazar.

He is tasked to kill all pirates at sea, and Jack begins the search of the most powerful artifact, Trident of Poseidon. In the United States, this movie is projected to gross over $110 million in its opening weekend.
