This might come as a shock for those in Australia, but winter is just around the corner.
That means we’re coming up on the movie theatres being filled with Hollywood’s big blockbusters.
In the coming months that includes titles like “Deadpool 2,” “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” and “Incredibles 2.”
And we can’t leave out the movie a decade in the making: “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Here are 32 movies we think you should go out and see this winter:
April 25 – “Avengers: Infinity War”
You might have heard about this little movie. It has a few superheroes in it and they finally battle a big purple guy. Yes, it’s going to make a couple of dollars at the movie theatres. Get ready for the most ambitious crossover event in history.
May 4 – “Overboard”
The classic Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell 1987 romantic comedy gets a gender swap for its reboot, as Anna Faris plays the overworked employee of a spoiled Mexican playboy (Eugenio Derbez) who gets some payback when he gets amnesia after falling off his yacht.
May 10 – “Tully”
Jason Reitman reteams with “Young Adult” screenwriter Diablo Cody (“Juno”) and star Charlize Theron for his latest movie about a mother (Theron) who forms a unique bond with her nanny (played by Mackenzie Davis).

After “Tammy” and “The Boss,” Melissa McCarthy teams once again with her husband, director Ben Falcone, in this comedy about a mother (McCarthy) who decides to spice up her life by going back to college. Specifically, she goes to the same school her daughter goes to. Expect the usual McCarthy silliness. The movie also stars Gillian Jacobs and Maya Rudolph.
June 1 – “Deadpool 2”
Ryan Reynolds returns as the Merc with a Mouth and we couldn’t be more excited. This time Cable (Josh Brolin) and Domino (Zazie Beetz) are along for the ride. It’s going to be a foul-mouthed good time.
May 24 – “Solo: A Star Wars Story”
With its original directors getting fired, and an emergency acting coach sent on set for its lead actor, the standalone young Han Solo movie has received the kind of attention Disney and Lucasfilm weren’t hoping for.

The “Ocean’s” franchise returns with the all-female leading cast that includes Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, and Rihanna.

June 28 – “Action Point”
It’s honestly the role Johnny Knoxville was born to play: the owner of an out-of-control amusement park. Based on the infamous New Jersey theme park, Action Park, Knoxville plays the owner of Action Point, an amusement park with poorly designed rides and under-trained staff. Expect a lot of “Jackass”-inspired stunts in this one.

Yes, “Here we go again.” All the ABBA songs you can stomach and an appearance by Cher.
July 27 – “Mission Impossible: Fallout”
