We're a month away from Movies in the Park starting up again in Minneapolis and the lineup is looking good.

Minneapolis Parks and Recreation has released the schedule for its free-to-attend 2018 season and it's littered with Hollywood blockbusters and family-friendly fare.

Among the after-sunset showings are several from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, perfect for those yearning for simpler times after seeing the ending of "The Avengers: Infinity War."

Included on the schedule is "Guardians of the Galaxy 2," "Thor: Ragnarok," "Spider-Man: Homecoming," and the runaway smash that is "Black Panther."
