2018 Summer Movie Sneaks Guide
With “Avengers: Infinity War” upon us, so is summer movie season. And thankfully, there’s not just another glut of superhero movies on the horizon (even though there’s plenty of that too thanks to “Deadpool 2,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” etc.) There’s family films (“Incredibles 2” for those still craving a bit of a superhero fix). And then there are comedies (“Crazy Rich Asians”). Or about horror à la the next “Purge” film? This year, there’s even a healthy dose of documentaries on a wide host of subjects ranging from Whitney Houston to Mister Rogers. Can’t keep track of it all? Thankfully, The Times’ film team is here to help.
