Too much time and effort in Cinemaland is wasted turning film into a game of winners and losers; Movie X made Y dollars so it matters more than Movie Z. But a film is way more than its box-office total. Some of the best movies released in 2016 failed to meet their financial expectations.
Okay, so it was one of the worst summer movie seasons in recent memory. Trying to find the good blockbusters amongst the last four months releases sometimes felt like trying to find a needle in a stack of s---. But even this year there were diamonds in the rough. Today we’re celebrating the ten best, the summer movies of 2016 that didn’t make us weep for the future of cinema — and note that this list is just movies that got wide releases in at least 500 theaters. We’ll have a separate piece on under-the-radar summer films you might have missed next week on ScreenCrush. In the meantime, let’s celebrate the highlights from a depressing summer before we clear the decks and get ready for the fall.
This summer, after a 27 year hiatus, Ghostbusters is returning to the big screen with the Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig led reboot. Also this summer, after a 15-year hiatus, Ghostbusters is returning to store shelves in the form of the classic 80s juice drink Hi-C Ecto Cooler...

Over the years, Batman has had some highly iconic themes. From the opening song of the classic 1960s ABC series to Danny Elfman’s instantly recognizable theme from the Tim Burton films, the many Batman adaptations have always included memorable music. With Batman vs. Superman fast approaching, we’re about to get a new addition from composer Junkie XL, who partnered with composer Hans Zimmer for the film’s score. Today, you can listen to the new Batman theme from Batman vs. Superman and see how it stacks up against some of the old classics.
Nobody really knows what’s going on with Disney and Lucasfilm’s reported reboot of the Indiana Jones franchise. They say they want to do it, we know they want to do it because they paid $3 billion for this stuff, but Steven Spielberg says there’s no way he’d recast Harrison Ford. So while they figure all that out, there’s this easter egg in Star Wars: The Force Awakens to keep all the Indiana Jones fans satisfied. You probably didn’t catch it the first time around, but we’re here to help you out.
