The weather heating up is nature's way of signaling that you need to get inside a gigantic, air-conditioned space with a bunch of other people. This year, there are a handful of exciting movies opening just in time, in addition to a ton of movies that have been in theaters for weeks. Haven't had time to catch Jurassic World yet? Your chance is here! Take a look ahead to find out what you should see, who you should take with you, and who you should definitely leave behind.
