Written by Talha Javaid


With Major deadlines heading your way, it’s good to relax and destress with trips to the cinema. This year has already given us some great movies, with March 17th lining up the highly anticipated live action version of classic Disney film “Beauty and the Beast”. But there is still more to look forward; Generation Z presents you a list of movies you must go see in the next couple of months.

  1. The Fate of the Furious – For action lovers this a movie to definitely indulge in, the 8th instalment of Fast and Furious comes out April 14th and will surely not disappoint. The trailer already has displayed a major plot twist with Vin Diesel’s character turning his back on his crew. It will be interesting to see how it all pans out. With The Rock returning, we are sure that this movie will be anything but boring. It will be how the franchise copes with the loss of late Paul Walker. Definitely a great way to kick start the final leg of the semester.


  1. The Lost City of Z – If you seek some adventure, be sure to check this movie out. It follows Charlie Hunnam as he takes on the Amazon rainforest in search of a lost city. You will surely not be disappointed as the movie shows great promise of intense scenes packed with action. Based on David Grann’s novel, the story follows the life and mysterious disappearance of Charlie’s Hunnam’s character Colonel Percy Fawcett. The movie is also set to release on April 14th, so it will definitely be great to space out cinema trips.


  1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 – The long awaited sequel of this marvel movie is set to be one that we won’t forget. If we learnt anything from the first movie, is that the Guardians will do anything to entertain us. We are looking forward to seeing baby groot, and our favourite talking raccoon aka Rocket, played by Bradley Cooper. This movie stars Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, the leader of the guardians.

If you are a fan of marvel cinematic verse this movie is a definite yes for you, and one you shouldn’t miss because of all the potential Easter eggs. The film is set to be released on May 5th, a perfect time to start thinking about the summer but relax whilst doing so.


  1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men tell no Tales – Mark your calendars as May 26th brings the fifth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Dead Man tell no Tales showcases Depp’s character on a hunt to find the Trident of Poseidon to save himself from a vengeful foe. When Jack Sparrow is involved, it’s a guaranteed adventure amongst the sea. We are sure this film will bring something new to the table and explore a new myth in a cool way, so get yourself ready for adventure, all aboard the Black Pearl.


  1. Baywatch – Ready everyone? Cause this movie will definitely get you in the mood for summer, Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron team up in this comedy/action movie to bring the heat to the screens playing sexy life guards. The movie is a remake of the series with the same name so has a lot of expectations to live up to. The trailers certainly haven’t disappointed, as the movie promises, fun, beach and well explosions. Priyanka Chopra also stars. Baywatch hits the screens also on 26th of May, but be sure to watch in the first week of June to start your summer off the right way.


Hope you have made notes, because this is just the beginning, as June onwards, Hollywood is taking the world by storm with the release of Wonder Woman, the remake of the Mummy, Spiderman Home coming, War of the Planet of the Apes, Thor Ragnarok and many more.
