The summer movie season is coming to an end, and as the dust clears, it wouldn't be an understatement to say this summer has felt somewhat lacking. The box office numbers confirm that the summer didn't see as much business as last year, and if you think about the movies that you absolutely loved, the list might be fairly small
That's not to say that this summer didn't have great movies, because it absolutely did. However, many of them came from places that you might not have been expecting. With August being a little slow on the new release front, it's the perfect time to go back and grab a screening of a movie you might have missed. Here are a few great summer movies that are still in theaters now.
Ok, you probably didn't miss Wonder Woman. It's the biggest movie of the summer at the domestic box office and in the number two spot for the year, behind only the juggernaut that was Beauty and the Beast. However, the fact that Wonder Woman, a movie that came out over two months ago is even still in theaters is a testament to just how good it is. It's obtained its box office success not through having a couple of blockbuster weeks but by having consistently solid business every week since June. If you somehow did miss this one, fix that while you still can. If you did see it the first time around, go check it out again before it's gone.
Every summer usually has at least one solid adult comedy to show off, and this year that movie was Girls Trip. The movie sees a group of friends traveling to New Orleans together where hijinks ensue. The Scarlett Johansson-starring Rough Night tried to have a solid summer with a similar premise, but Girls Trip is by far the better option and it's one of the best comedies so far this year. If you need a laugh as summer comes to a close, this is the movie to see. Better yet, see it with friends.
