The oldest “mutant” in the X-Men universe awakens from a deep sleep that has lasted for thousands of years. Apocalypse is not satisfied with what the world has become, and embarks on a journey to destroy the world in order to build an ideal one. The leaders of the X-Men, Rayven and Professor X, must assemble a team of inexperienced mutants to save the world.

Finding Dory
Pixar is releasing Finding Dory, the sequel to the 2003 hit, Finding Nemo, on June 17, 2016. The thirteen year wait is finally over, as families across the globe will get to explore the life of Dory and her family – after she helps Marlin (the protagonist in Finding Nemo) reunite with his son, Nemo. Dory, voice acted by Ellen DeGeneres, was known for being a short-term amnesiac, unable to remember events immediately after they have occurred. Her character flaw was unsettling for most initially, but quickly turned entertaining as the hunt for Nemo progressed and stress built up in the audience. Finding Nemo won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature along with 46 other awards. Director Andrew Stanton hopes to reimagine the sea world in Finding Dory and illuminate the details behind Dory’s past this summer, just in time for Woodgrove’s summer break.

In this jaws type horror thriller Nancy must navigate her way back to shore through treacherous waters. This will be the ultimate test of will power and she must use the few resources available at her disposal to survive. The movie is set to release on June 29 and is currently not rated.

In this story, Tarzan returns to the Congo as new villains are introduced to the jungle. The Legend of Tarzan is anticipated to be an action-packed film that brings more character to the legendary animated figure. The movie is rated PG-13.
