The summer movie season is almost upon us. Captain America: Civil War will kick things off on May 6, and then there’s something big each and every weekend through July and even into August. We’ve already seen trailers for all the big releases this summer, but now some new photos from the 2016 summer movies have arrived. After the jump, check out some new images from the Ghostbusters reboot, Jason Bourne, Star Trek Beyond, The BFG and more.
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones are blasting their proton packs in this new image from Paul Feig’s reboot of the classic paranormal comedy. This looks to be a shot from the scene we’ve seen in the trailers where the team encounters a giant, winged spook in the middle of a raging rock concert. There have been rumblings that Ozzy Osborne has a cameo in this scene, but we’ll have to wait and see. Even if the comedy hasn’t convinced me yet, I do like the look of the movie so far.
Finally, we get an exciting image from Jason Bourne, the fourth sequel in the franchise that began with The Bourne Identity, or technically the fifth if you include The Bourne Legacy in the line-up. This shot can actually be glimpsed quickly in the Super Bowl spot from back in February when the new title was revealed. If that sneak peek is any indicator, Matt Damon is really going to kick some ass in this one. Hopefully we’ll get a full length trailer soon.
Star Trek Beyond
The final trailer for the sci-fi sequel will arrive next month, but until then, we get another look at the alien villain named Krall played by Idris Elba. It’s a little difficult to tell, but I’m pretty sure that’s Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) being lifted into the air by his neck. If there’s one problem that the Star Trek franchise has had, it’s with memorable or intimidating villains. Even Benedict Cumberbatch couldn’t make the new iteration of Khan all that threatening, so I’m hoping Idris Elba can work some magic in the final frontier.
Following the most recent trailer, a new still from Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s classic children’s novel has arrived. Seeing stills of characters who are created with visual effects can always be tricky, but this shot of Mark Rylance as the title giant looks fantastic. Watch the new trailer for The BFG right here.
The teaser trailer for The Shallows didn’t show much beyond a bloody, injured Blake Lively stuck on some jagged rocks in the middle of the ocean being circled by a huge shark. In this shot, it looks like she’s ditched the wetsuit, found herself a big metal buoy and armed herself with what appears to be a flare gun. This looks like it could be a really suspenseful thriller, but it all rests on the shoulders of Blake Lively.
Finally, here’s a new shot from Woody Allen‘s latest film, Cafe Society. The movie is slated to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival before hitting theaters in August and eventually Amazon for streaming. Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg star in the film which we just learned much more about
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly for the new photos from some of the more anticipated 2016 summer movies. We’ll be seeing much more from these movies in the coming weeks, including new trailers, so stay tuned for all the latest.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
