Your guide to summer movies 2023: From Spider-Verse to Mission: Impossible

This summer's hottest club (*in Saturday Night Live Stefon voice*) is... the movie theater! It's got everything: multiple multiverses, Tom Cruise destroying a train, a de-aged Harrison Ford (!?!?), an atomic bomb, Ryan Gosling Ken-ergy, air conditioning, and Megs. What are Megs? They're like Godzilla-sized sharks except Jason Statham randomly drop-kicks them in the face.

Summer movies in 2023 are bringing the hottest hyphenated titles — from Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse to Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One — to the big screen over the next couple months, alongside the latest from Christopher Nolan, Pixar, and DC.
