Get excited. From ways to die in the West to the rebirth of Godzilla, here are the twenty films that will make the summer movie season one of the most awesome in years.

20. The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Why You Should Watch It:

Watching Spider-Man fly around New York City via spider webs never gets old. Plus we get a brand new Green Goblin in Spider-Man’s friend Harry Osborn, aka Dane DeHaan, who endured a strict burger-less diet in his Marvel-villain training just for you.

19. Chef

Why You Should Watch It:

Jon Favreau trained with food truck king Roy Choi to make all of your food porn dreams come true. (And to make a movie about a chef who trades in his unexciting restaurant job for a food truck.) Chef is as funny—and its soundtrack as killer—as it will make you insanely, angrily hungry.

18. Godzilla

In Theaters: Friday, May 16

Why You Should Watch It:

Walter White vs. Godzilla? Yes, plz. The famous sea monster-turned-nuclear mutant—and all the destruction that comes with him—looks bigger, realer, and scarier than ever in this modern-day reboot of the original.

17. Million Dollar Arm

In Theaters: Friday, May 16

Why You Should Watch It:

Fits criteria of The Great American Baseball Movie genre—loveable underdogs awkwardly trying their best (Suraj Sharma and Madhur Mittal), big-shot bad guy ultimately redeemed (Jon Hamm), and a much-needed reminder that baseball is awesome. With added bonus of eternal girl crush Lake Bell.

16. X-Men: Days of Future Past

In Theaters: Friday, May 23

Why You Should Watch It:

Gang’s all here, literally. The X-Men and their younger selves from X-Men: First Class link up—via time travel, natch—to fight off an apocalypse-threatening enemy led by Peter Dinklage. In a word: epic.

15. Maleficent

In Theaters: Friday, May 30

Why You Should Watch It:

Angelina Jolie makes the scariest of Disney villainesses as sexy as she is evil. And she’s the one who gives Sleeping Beauty the worst sweet sixteen present ever: death. Also, all those special effects will just make your inner child’s jaw drop.

14. A Million Ways to Die in the West

In Theaters: Friday, May 30

Why You Should Watch It:

If you love Seth MacFarlane. (And/or watching people die.) In A Million Ways to Die in the West, Seth MacFarlane does a Western with Seth MacFarlane jokes starring Seth MacFarlane. It also stars everyone else you love: including Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, and Sarah Silverman. Plus, no talking teddy bears.

13. Edge of Tomorrow

In Theaters: Friday, June 6

Why You Should Watch It:

To witness the return of Tom Cruise, Action Movie Star. He works on saving the day against angry aliens in some future doomsday time loop. Also welcome Emily Blunt, Badass Hero.

12. The Fault In Our Stars

In Theaters: Friday, June 6

Why You Should Watch It:

You need a good cry. And this movie, a tragic cancer-stricken teen love story, will give you one. The Fault In Our Stars achieves peak ugly cry minus any Lifetime-style cheesiness you expect plus proof that Shailene Woodley is The Best.

11. 22 Jump Street

In Theaters: Friday, June 13

Why You Should Watch It:

Same bromance (Channing Tatum <3 Jonah Hill); same premise (undercover cops doing undercover things); same hilariousness (all the LOLz). This time, they’re in college—expect more beer pong and spraaaang break jokes.

10. Tammy

In Theaters: Wednesday, July 2

Why You Should Watch It:

Have you watched the trailer? Do it now. DO IT NOW. The premise: Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) hits the road with her drunk granny (Susan Sarandon) after she catches her husband cheating. The result: the fast food restaurant-robbing Thelma & Louise of our dreams.

9. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

In Theaters: Friday, July 18

Why You Should Watch It:

You want to find out how that whole Planet of the Apes thing happened. Spoiler alert: it happened after Caesar found some war-paint and went, wait for it, apeshit. Things don’t look good for Team Human.

8. Mood Indigo

In Theaters: Friday, July 18

Why You Should Watch It:

A surreal love story en français from director Michel Gondry will break up the big-budget blockbuster midsummer monotony with some quirk.

7. Jupiter Ascending

In Theaters: Friday, July 25

Why You Should Watch It:

To find out what it’s actually about. One look at the trailer for the Wachowskis’ latest and…we’re not sure. Something about Mila Kunis being a queen named Jupiter. Other planets. Sean Bean is Channing Tatum’s boss? Whatever, it looks cool.

6. Hercules

In Theaters: Friday, July 25

Why You Should Watch It:

The Rock has eaten seven meals a day, trained for six months, and BECAME A GIANT to play Hercules in Hercules. This movie will prove Dwayne Johnson is a bankable action star and/or a Greek demigod. YOU GUYS, he fist-fights a giant lion in the trailer.

5. Wish I Was Here

In Theaters: Friday, July 18

Why You Should Watch It:

Zach Braff wants your tears. See: this very Zach Braff-y trailer. Now, hand them over.

4. Guardians of the Galaxy

In Theaters: Friday, August 1

Why You Should Watch It:

The hilarious Chris Pratt as hilarious superhero? Sold. See also: a raccoon with the voice of Bradley Cooper. And this: “They call themselves the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ What a bunch of A-holes.”

3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

In Theaters: Friday, August 8

Why You Should Watch It:

Uh, because Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Plus, all of the other things that make summer blockbusters so blockbuster-y: Michael Bay-style explosions, Megan Fox, and your favorite childhood cartoons turned into live action heroes. Cowabunga, etc. etc.

2. Life After Beth

In Theaters: Friday, August 15

Why You Should Watch It:

To watch Aubrey Plaza turn into a zombie is to fall in love with Aubrey Plaza all over again. (And to be really afraid of her.) The comedy vet cast—including John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, and Cheryl Hines—along with Dane DeHaan, make this as funny a zombie movie as it is a grossly bloody zombie movie.

1. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

In Theaters: Friday, August 22

Why You Should Watch It:

Total eye candy.
