Hard to believe Tag is based on a true story, but it is!

Starring Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, Hannibal Burress, Isla Fisher and Jeremy Renner, the movie is full of very funny actors and one social media that has been dying to watch.

Three years after the Jurassic World theme park and resort was destroyed by dinosaurs who broke out of containment, the island on which they sit is now abandoned by humans with the prehistoric creatures fending for themselves. However, when the dormant volcano roars to life and threatens their existence, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) decide to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from extinction-level, including Owen’s raptor, Blue. However, as everything that happens in the Jurassic World, things don’t go as planned and threatens human life as we know it.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Releases: June 29

The war on drugs between the U.S. and Mexico border escalates in the second chapter in the Sicario series, with cartels trafficking terrorists across the American border. But to fight the war, U.S. federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) calls on the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro), who lost his family to a cartel kingpin, for help. Devising a ruthless plan to inflame the conflict, Alejandro kidnaps the kingpin’s daughter, but realizes she is nothing more than collateral damage and her fate is in the hands of the two men who suddenly question what it is they’re exactly fighting for.
