Memorial Day 2014 has almost arrived, and while most are still praying from sunshine and warm waters, the weather forecast has been less than promising. Even if the rain is here to stay, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a fun holiday weekend, you just have to change some of the barbeque plans. Instead of throwing the Memorial Day party you wanted, gather up your friends and family and forget about the rainy weather, with a Memorial Day weekend movie marathon. Luckily for you, in addition to the traditional grilling foods and beers, the holiday is known to have some of the best summer movie releases. Check out our list of the forthcoming movie releases to find out what films you and your friends should see in theaters this weekend.
