Watch | Read | Listen {August 2016}

August is a great month for books! There are so many coming out that I want to read, like The Thousandth Floor. August also means Suicide Squad. I've been waiting and waiting and waiting to see this movie for months ever since watching the trailer. My brothers and I already have our tickets for it! What are you excited for this month? 


Suicide Squad
The world's most dangerous super-villains with nothing to lose teaming up with the government to send them on super secret, dangerous missions. What could go wrong? Will the team of villains (Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevigne and more), hand-picked by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), die trying to succeed or stick together? {Watch the trailer.} Already bought my ticket because I'm that excited to see this! (August 5)

Pete's Dragon
A reimagining of Disney's beloved children's movie, Pete's Dragon is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who happens to be a dragon. Starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, and Karl Urban. {Watch the trailer.} This looks so cute! (August 12)

Sausage Party
The first R-rated animated movie about one sausage (Seth Rogan) leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they're chosen to leave the grocery store. Starring Kristin Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, and more. {Watch the trailer - NSFW} This movie looks completely ridiculous, but also hilarious. And of course my brothers want to see it. (August 12)

Kubo and the Two Strings
In fantastical Japan, clever and kind-hearted Kubo (Art Parkinson) has a humble life telling stories to people in his seaside town, but his quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which comes to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey) on a quest to fulfill his destiny. {Watch the trailer.} This movie looks incredible and I adore the animation style! (August 19)

The Space Between Us
Shortly after reaching Mars, an astronaut dies while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet. Gardner Elliot (Asa Butterfield) is an inquisitive, intelligent boy who reaches 16 only knowing 14 people. While searching for clues about his father, he begins an online friendship with a girl named Tulsa ( Britt Robertson). Finally, he gets a chance to go to Earth, but discovers that his organs can't handle Earth's atmosphere. {Watch the trailer.} Asa Butterfield is such a great actor and I'll watch anything with him in it. Plus, this looks like an interesting movie. (August 19)
