It seems that when you put together a calendar of the year in movies, the result would paint an extremely lopsided picture. While this summer, we have had a couple of triumphs — “Wonder Woman,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2” and “cars 3,” it feels like a slightly less severe version of the last summer. Now, we should stop expecting a new masterpiece every weekend and wait for the fall lineup.

Here is a list of films which may change the game in coming weeks.

‘All Eyez on Me’

The biggest surprise this past weekend came from Lionsgate’s long-awaited “All Eyez on Me.” The film has exceeded expectations in the United States and Canada – the two primary markets that make up domestic box office figures. Directed by Benny Boom, “All Eyez on Me” is a biographical drama about hip-hop artist Tupac Shakur. It stars Demetrius Shipp, Kat Graham, Hill Harper, Danai Gurira, and Lauren Cohan.

“All Eyez on Me” chronicles the life and legacy of Tupac Shakur, including his controversial and prolific time at Death Row Records. Various sources, including Berks-Mont Entertainment, confirm that the official soundtrack album will feature contributions from some famous artists. However, at the time of its release, there was no information about the soundtrack album. In Canada and North America, “All Eyez on Me” was released on June 16, 2017, alongside “Cars 3,” “Rough Night” and “47 Meters Down.”

‘47 Meters Down’

47 Meters Down” has brought in $15 million domestically—24% more than its Entertainment Studios had predicted.

That's pretty good for a film that earned a “B+” on CinemaScore and was almost released straight to home video a few months ago. Directed by Johannes Roberts, “47 Meters Down” is one of the best horror movies to date. The cast includes Mandy Moore, Matthew Modine, Yani Gellman, Claire Holt, Santiago Segura, and Chris J. Johnson.

The film explores the lives of two sisters (Lisa and Kate) who are on vacation in New Mexico.

Lisa’s boyfriend has left her because she “made the relationship annoying,” and Kate tries to cheer her up by taking Lisa out dancing and drinking late night. Released on June 16, 2017, the film earned over $4.2 million on its first day, increasing weekend estimates to $10 million.

‘Cars 3.'

Movie Fone reports that “Cars 3” has managed to overtake “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2” and “Wonder Woman.” Directed by Brian Fee, the film features voices of Cristela Alonzo, Owen Wilson, Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Kerry Washington, Lea DeLaria and Bonnie Hunt.

Cars 3” has received positive reviews from audiences and critics, who admired the voice actors, animation, subject matter and Randy Newman's musical score.

As all major summer movies have been released, we should now stop waiting for a masterpiece every Friday. What do you say?
