Popcorn movie season kicks into high gear this weekend with the release of “Avengers: Endgame.” But what are the other films to watch out for this summer? Read on for our recommendations of the buzziest monster movies, rom-coms, family films, horror flicks, superhero sagas and art house drama.

Opening dates are subject to change.

Long Shot

(May 3, R)

Starring: Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen.

Most movies implicitly ask for our willing suspension of disbelief. “Long Shot” explicitly demands it.

Embedded in the very title is an acknowledgment of the far-fetched nature of its premise: that Theron’s beautiful, brainy U.S. secretary of state, a high achiever preparing for a presidential run, could fall in love with Rogen’s chronically underemployed schlub, a wordsmith she hires to be her speechwriter, despite his gift for embarrassing himself — and her — in public.

Okay. So she was his babysitter 25 years ago. And the actors do have a kind of on-screen chemistry. But the film, which was a crowd favorite at the recent South by Southwest Festival, may be more out of reach for some reality-based viewers. “I just want you to [make love to] me from behind and slap my [derriere] really hard,” Theron’s character says. “Choke me a little.”
