Welcome to the summer of 1985. I'm not talking about the theme of time travel, that staple of warm-weather movies. But there's something in the cinematic zeitgeist this summer that reeks of 30-year-old Drakkar Noir. From George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" to "Straight Outta Compton," there's a distinct air of nostalgia in the multiplex for Reagan-era America.

Click through the posters below for quick synopses of the season’s most talked-about films. There’s something in our summer preview for every taste, especially movie fans still wearing acid-washed jeans.

Note: Release dates are for the Washington D.C. area and are subject to change.
