Keanu Reeves is back as the titular killer, now in more desperate straits than ever as he tries to escape New York while every assassin in the city attempts to collect the massive bounty on his head.

8. Booksmart

Release Date: May 24

This coming-of-age comedy is already shaping up to be one of the best-reviewed films of the summer. Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein star as two soon-to-be high school graduates who regret studying too much and decide to cram four years of partying into a single evening.



9. Brightburn

Release Date: May 24

Producer James Gunn is taking a break before venturing into the DCEU by tackling a very different type of superhero movie. This horror-flavored film focuses on a couple (played by Elizabteh Banks and David Denman) who rescue an orphaned alien boy and find him growing up to become something terrible.



10. Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Release Date: May 31

The latest entry in the long-running “Godzilla” franchise is a sequel to 2014’s “Godzilla,” though it features a new director and mostly new cast. Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown star as the titular beast goes up against fearsome foes like Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah. The film is also expected to set the stage for next year’s epic monster mashup “Godzilla vs. Kong.”
