I call him “The Legend” because he just reeks class all over and I’m sure a lot of you would agree with me.

After his success with “Rampage,” the big man Dwayne Johnson is back and with another blockbuster in “Skyscraper.” Director Rawson Marshall Thurber has got everyone on the edge of their seats for this action packed thriller.

Literally, the biggest blockbuster in the U.S box office this July. Star directors Bruce Geller and Christopher McQuairrie unite for this big one as “Mission Impossible” sees its sixth volume. Tagged “The Fallout,” we’ll see action duo in fans favorite Tom Cruise and the delectable Rebecca Ferguson.
The plot tells the tale of a mission gone wrong when Ethan Hunt and his team as well as allies are put in a precarious situation in a battle against time. Personally, I can’t wait for this one guys. An action-thriller from start to finish. Catch this big one at the cinemas and be sure to grab a popcorn as well on July 27th, 2018.
• SORRY TO BOTHER YOU
Lastly, Lakeith Stanfield stars in this raw Black suburban story of a Black community in the old Oakland and its ghastly and gruesome street nature. Telemarketer Cassius Green, leads a protest against corporate oppression in Calif until he crossed paths with cocaine baron Steve Lift who’d offer him the biggest deal of his entire life.
Guys, this one’s got everything in it. From drama to comedy and the sheer tingling sensation of the Afro-American culture and vibe coupled with street cred and wit.
Really poised for this one guys. Also, “Power” star Omar Hardwick is on the scenes for this one alongside Tessa Thompson, Danny Glover and Jermaine Fowler. Release date is on July 6th, 2018.
