Whether we want to believe it or not – the first half of 2018 is already behind us. With the hype of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, ‘Deadpool 2’, and ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ firmly left in our wake, we’re now heading into the remaining half of the year with its own set of blockbusters ready to wrack our wallets dry.
Besides the obvious pick (‘Incredibles 2’, duh), these next two months promise a lot of high stakes, action-packed thrillers, some much anticipated sequels, and even a superhero movie or two! Here are the titles you won’t want to miss:
