We’re halfway through the summer season, and there’s been plenty of exciting blockbuster hits to show up on the big screen. But summer isn’t over yet, and we’ve got a few more movies on our radar. From heartwarming family stories to coming-of-age films to hilarious misadventures, here’s seven films we can’t wait to see.

Don’t Make Me Go (Released Today)

John Cho pulls at the heartstrings as a dying father trying to reconnect with his daughter Wally (Mia Isaac). After years away, Cho’s character Max realizes that his little time left should be spent giving his daughter the best life she can have. The film explores the eternal bond between a father and daughter, and provides a reminder that familial bonds may be messy but they’re often worth the fight.

In his directorial debut, B.J. Novak stars a dark comic thriller as Ben Manalowitz, a podcast-journalist who travels to West Texas to investigate the death of a girl he was casually dating.

From The Spectacular Now’s Sean Baker, Summering follows the journey of four young girls who are straddling the line of innocent adolescence and the urge to grow up.

NOPE (In Theaters July 22)

Jordan Peele’s next thriller has been on our minds for a while, and it’s finally here. Nope is a story about… aliens? Family? A rodeo show? No one really knows, which adds to the mystery of it all.
