Do you enjoy suspenseful, edgy, and action-packed movies, but aren’t the biggest fan of superheroes?

We all know that the latest installment of the Batman saga was one of the most highly anticipated films of the summer.

For some, this film is a must-see and for others it was just another blockbuster hit. If you’re a movie enthusiast but not quite a fan of superheroes, here are some late summer blockbusters that are sure to leave you on the edge of your seat — and in some cases laughing out of it.

The Bourne Legacy

The fourth Bourne movie is the first one to not feature Matt Damon’s as Jason Bourne. Instead, the film follows the journey of a new CIA operative played by Jeremy Renner. Renner also played Hawkeye in the summer blockbuster The Avengers.

Premium Rush

Premium Rush is a tale of a New York City bike messenger who receives a package that sends him on a journey of no return. It’s a story of a good guy trapped in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Campaign

Funnyman Zach Galifianakis and “Saturday Night Live” alum Will Ferrell team up for a late summer comedy where they play two public officials competing to take office. Check out the movie trailer for a quick laugh at the antics Zach and Will pull.

Total Recall

This 2012 remake features Colin Ferrell fighting to recover his memory while escaping the government that is trying to kill him.

The Expendables 2

Expect nothing but explosions, amazing aerial showcases, intense fight scenes, and, oh yeah, more explosions.
