Swiss Army Man (Daniel Radcliffe)

Earlier this week we covered some of the biggest major releases coming out this summer. But maybe you’re like me — with a few exceptions (The Nice GuysThe BFG, and Jason Bourne), few popcorn movies coming up have me thinking, “I gotta see that.” There are plenty of releases to look forward to, of course, it’s just that very few major titles truly pop when I look over what’s opening in theaters soon.

If you wish there were more options this summer, then luckily for you there are plenty of limited releases to seek out. If you frequent the site, then you’ve probably already read about a few of these upcoming films. But just don’t forget actually to see them when they hit theaters. If you need a breather from all of the hero’s journeys, explosions, and talking CG animals, then the arthouse cinemas have got you covered.

Below, check out our summer movie preview for some independent films you shouldn’t miss.

Maggie's Plan trailer

It’s no secret that love has a way of complicating things, both in the movies and in life, but Maggie’s Plan takes these complications to the next level. Greta Gerwig stars as Maggie, a 30something New Yorker who’s decided the time is right for her to try and get pregnant on her own. Then she meets and falls for a professor named John (Ethan Hawke), who’s unhappily married to Georgette (Julianne Moore), and all of Maggie’s plans go out the window.

The Rebecca Miller-directed comedy has been making the rounds on the festival circuit for the past several months, and now it’s finally on its way into theaters. Watch the first Maggie’s Plan trailer after the jump.  Read More »
