As school comes to an end, everyone is already looking forward to summer break and all the new entertainment coming out. To make things simple, here’s a preview of all things entertainment this summer.

Movie fanatics everywhere, get excited. It’s the summer of reboots and series. On the very first day of summer break, May 26, Pirates of the Caribbean returns with “Dead Men Tell No Tales.”  Actor Orlando Bloom return as Will Turner, as featured in the trailer. Bloom was a main character in the first three movies of the “Pirates of the Caribbean.” On the same day, hip-hop artist Lil Yachty will release his new album called “Teenage Emotions.”

Soon after, June will bring a variety of different films and music. First, out on June 2, Marvel’s “Wonder Woman” is expected to be a huge hit. As “Wonder Woman” has never been screen adapted for a live-action picture, fans of the comic books and other Marvel movies are waiting  to see how it plays on screen.

Electropop singer Halsey announced her sophomore studio album “Hopeless Fountain Kingdom” for release on June 2. The singer sent her fans on a worldwide scavenger hunt to release her album artwork in March.

Following up is a reboot movie, “The Mummy” starring Tom Cruise. Its release date is set for June 9. “Transformers: The Last Night” will close up June by hitting the theater on the 23 as the fifth movie in the “Transformers” series.

For Junior Paulina Mares, this summer is all about the music. She is looking forward most to Lana Del Rey’s new album “Lust For Life.” Although the official date is yet to be released, many Lana Del Rey fans speculate the album will debut sometime in June or July.

“Lana Del Rey is so chill,” Mares said. “Her words are so beautiful. Her voice is so unique and unlike anything else you hear on the radio.”

Mares also expressed her annoyance with being unable to go to concerts throughout the school year. She says that because many concerts are on school nights it has hindered her ability to go to  them.

“The best part about summer entertainment is having the freedom to not have school in the way of going to concerts,” Mares said.

As for television, on June 9 , “Orange is the New Black” season five releases on Netflix. Another season five, for Freeform’s “The Fosters” comes out June 20.

Into July, the entertainment seems to slow down in the television and music areas. However, some of the summer’s biggest blockbusters will debut in this month.

On July 7, Marvel’s highly anticipated “Spider-Man: Homecoming” hits theaters. Marvel fans have already gotten a glimpse of Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War” when Spider-Man joined forces to help Tony Stark’s cause.

Another movie that is debuting in July is “War For the Planet of the Apes” on the 14  followed by Christopher Nolan’s World War Two movie, “Dunkirk” on July 21. Also releasing on July 21, starring Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan is an English-Language French science fiction action-adventure film based on the French science fiction comics series “Valérian and Laureline” called “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.”

If you are looking for some live entertainment, several concerts are coming to Indy this summer. On June 23, radio station 99.5 ZPL is hosting its summer Birthday Bash featuring Niall Horan, Fifth Harmony, Flo Rida, James Arthur and more at the Indiana Farmer’s Coliseum. The next day on June 24, Florida Georgia Line is performing at Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville as well as country singer Sam Hunt on June 2. One Republic will then be performing at Klipsch Music Center on July 13.
