There are quite a bit of action films set to come out in August. There is a total of five films that will be filled with action that will certainly keep you going to the theaters week to week. August is going to be looking to make up for the lack of good movies in July and help improve ticket sales.
There a few young adult adaptations set to come out this month. This kind of movie is coming off a successful adaptation from The Fault in Our Stars and looks to continue the streak as both The Giver and If I Stay are set to come out.
Perhaps the biggest movie to come out this month and perhaps this summer is the latest movie from Marvel in Guardians of the Galaxy. It has an A-list cast and a lot of action and comedy that we can expect from a Marvel film. This could perhaps be the dark horse for one of the top movies of the year.
