Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25th)- Say what you will about George Lucas; he didn’t let these characters out of the gate too often. Seeing a second “Star Wars” movie in five months might be more exhausting than making the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. On the other hand, Alden Ehrenreich — the movie cowboy in “Hail, Caesar!” — has the perfect looks and attitude to play the young Han Solo. Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover and Woody Harrelson also star. Ron Howard replaced Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“The Lego Movie”) at the helm.

Ocean’s 8 (June 8th)- Sandra Bullock, as Debbie Ocean (of the Clooney Oceans), celebrates her release from prison as one does: by assembling an all-star cast (Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter et al.) to rob diamonds from the annual Met Gala.

Hereditary (June 8)- The death of a kooky grandmother unleashes a house of horrors for the family of her daughter (Toni Collette in a performance that exceeds her Oscar-nominated work in “The Sixth Sense”). The superlatives from critics at Sundance probably set expectations unreasonably high, but this is scary stuff. With Alex Wolff, Ann Dowd, Gabriel Byrne and Milly Shapiro as the requisite creepy moppet.

The Incredibles 2 (June 15th)- They keep creating new ways to celebrate mediocrity,” Mr. Incredible warned in 2004 in “The Incredibles,” inadvertently setting a high bar for a sequel, which has to rise well above mediocrity to avoid running afoul of its own ethos. The director Brad Bird returns along with the vocal cast, which includes Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter and Samuel L. Jackson.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (June 22nd)- It’s been 25 years since “Jurassic Park.” Have we not learned anything? And by anything, I mean which aspect ratio dinosaurs look best in. The Spanish director J. A. Bayona (“The Orphanage”) takes over dino-wrangling duties from Colin Trevorrow, who directed the 2015 “Jurassic World.” Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return from that film, along with Jeff Goldblum. Will Ms. Howard runs in heels again?

Sicario 2: Soldado (June 29th)- Crucial components of the first “Sicario” — Emily Blunt and the director Denis Villeneuve — are gone, but so are the rules, or at least that’s what Josh Brolin tells Benicio Del Toro in the trailer. The two set out to stoke wars among the Mexican cartels. Stefano Sollima (the “Gomorrah” TV series) directed.

Sorry To Bother You (July 6th)- In this Sundance hit, Lakeith Stanfield stars as an Oakland, Calif., telemarketer who rises through the ranks of a company and into the good graces of an unhinged entrepreneur (Armie Hammer). Your mileage may vary on whether the rapper Boots Riley’s feature writing-directing debut bites off more than it chews, satirically, but it has plenty going on. Tessa Thompson also stars.

Ant-Man And The Wasp (July 6th)- Put a Marvel movie in theaters, and it’s like laying a trail of pheromones for fanboys. The colony continues to grow with this sequel to “Ant-Man” (2015), which once again shrinks Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. Michael Douglas returns, too, along with the director Peyton Reed.

Eighth Grade (July 13th)- The comedian Bo Burnham makes his feature writing and directing debut with this Sundance charmer about an eighth-grader (Elsie Fisher) whose confidence dispensing advice in web videos belies her tentativeness in real life.

Mission Impossible: Fallout (July 27th)- Brian De Palma. John Woo. J.J. Abrams. Brad Bird. Christopher McQuarrie. Until now, each “Mission: Impossible” has been directed by a different filmmaker with a recognizable style or signature. Mr. McQuarrie becomes the first director to repeat with this installment. Has Hollywood run out of auteurs? Are women allowed to direct “Mission: Impossible” movies?

The Spy Who Dumped Me (August 3rd)- After one of them has a breakup with a C.I.A. operative, two friends (Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon) become embroiled in international intrigue. Susanna Fogel directed this comedy.

Crazy Rich Asians (August 17th)- After several whitewashing controversies and criticism of a lack of roles for Asian stars, anticipation is high for a Hollywood movie that puts an Asian story front and center. A New York economics professor (Constance Wu) accompanies her boyfriend (Henry Golding) to his native Singapore for the first time — and learns that he and his family are extremely wealthy. Jon M. Chu directed this adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel.
