Summer Movie Scorecard 2018
Blockbuster season started a week early this year with the bumped-up release of Avengers: Infinity War, meaning 2018’s Summer Movie Scorecard might be the biggest one yet! To newcomers, the Summer Movie Scorecard is a weekly ranking of the major releases throughout May, June, July, and August (and that one week in April) by Tomatometer, updated every Monday. To qualify, a movie needs to be released in 600+ theaters and/or accrue 80 Tomatometer reviews.
And if you’re curious what movies coming up might make an appearance one day on the Scorecard, simply consult our Summer Movie Calendar (click here)!
