After years of streaming from our houses during the pandemic, movie theaters are finally back! We don't know about you, but we're ready to sit in those airconditioned theaters all summerlong and watch movies.  

We've got all the must-see summer blockbusters from Jeremy Parsons, New York Senior Correspondent for's "PEOPLE (The TV Show!). Grab some popcorn and hit the theaters—here are his top four picks. 

1. Top Gun Maverick  

"The thing that I love about this movie is Tom Cruise is very passionate about it, which makes me think we're in for a really good time. He wanted Val Kilmer to come back as Ice Man. He wasn't going to do with without him. Apparently, they have a very emotional reunion," says Jeremy.  

Plus, you've got a lot of new cast members, including Jon Hamm. And as far as stunts, Tom Cruise did a lot of them himself. "Tom and the other cast members went through G-Force training and flight training—he wanted those shots inside the cockpit of fighter jets to really be inside the cockpit of fighter jets. The director said he had to ask the Navy for special permission to do some high risk stuff," explains Jeremy. How incredible!  

Coming to theaters May 27th, 2022.  

2. Jurassic World Dominion 

This movie has an all-star cast, from Chris Pratt to Bryce Dallas Howard, and even original cast members Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum are back.  

"They're kind of wrapping up the series with this, but it's never really over," says Jeremy.   

Coming to theaters June 10th, 2022. 

3.  Lightyear  

"Disney does it again. It's weird to say, but it's a Buzz Lightyear origin story. The director said, 'I want to know what movie Andy, the kid in Toy Story, saw to inspire him to get the toy.' This is that movie," explains Jeremy.  

"Tim Allen traditionally did the voice, but Chris Evans is taking over doing the voice. And they explain that away by saying Tim Allen was the toy and this is the real Buzz. Plus, you've got some really cool aliens, space adventure, and his sidekick is this adorable robot cat, so it's still for the family—but if you're old like us, this movie is just as much for you," says Jeremy.   

Coming to theaters June 17th, 2022.  

4. Elvis 

"Tom Hanks plays Colonel Tom Parker who's the guy responsible for making Elvis a star. And Elvis is an actor named Austin Butler, [who] some people might know from Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, things like that—but this is really his big moment. He could become a huge star if this goes well. He talked about vocal training for a year, he's got the dance, he sings—all of it, " says Jeremy.   

We can't wait to hit the theaters with a bag of popcorn to watch all of these this upcoming summer.
