Blasts from the Past
Finding Dory- June 17

In 2014, this movie’s prequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past, pulled in $233 million, according to boxofficemojo.com. Based on this series’ triumph, the X-Men: Apocalypse is likely to be victorious.

Independence Day: Resurgence- June 24
The sequel to the 1996 hit is expected to stomp out competitors. The first Independence Day defined the summer action blockbuster, reaching a national gross of $817 million. With a new cast continuing the ’96 storyline, Resurgence questions whether humans can defeat this newer, stronger race of alien invaders.
