Now is the time to call in sick to work; wear your pajamas, grab the popcorn, and get ready to binge-watch. Summer is lazy weather, and finding Binge-Worthy Movie Marathons is the dream way to pass the summer. We have decided to make the selection process easy for you. So, this summer, you have many Binge-Worthy Movie Marathon series you can select from. Let’s start this list without any further ado.
Table of Contents
1. Star Wars
We were confused between Star Wars and Star Trek, and in the end, we went with the superior space galactic binge marathon. Star Wars is one of the franchise series of all time, and even the latest Disney projects can not hold it down.
Star Wars franchise consists of 11 movies, eight animated movies, eight animated micro-series, and five live-action series, with more to come. You have at least a month-long binge-worthy content in front of you, ready to be explored.
2. James Bond
We promise not every mention on this list will be a long binge. But James Bond is something that you can never ignore. Every movie in this franchise has something special.
There are 25 canon James Bond movies, while 2 are not part of the canon, making 27 movies. And there are rumors that Phoebe Waller-Bridge will write the next James Bond project. If true, we are in for an absolute treat and more reason to binge-watch this franchise.
3. Harry Potter
The go-to Binge watch movie series for everyone. If anyone says that magic is not accurate, they are entirely wrong. Because the Harry Potter franchise is magic in its own right, and no one can deny that.
JK Rowling has created a masterpiece that no one can get enough of. And with the talks of rebooting the franchise, it is the perfect time to catch up with the franchise. Only eight movies are in the franchise; you will be finished before you realize it.
4. Paranormal Activity
The first four movies of this franchise are brilliant. They are my guilty pleasure, and I enjoy them wholeheartedly. ‘The Marked One’ was also a nice collection to the franchise, but ‘The Ghost Dimension’ felt like a completely different movie.
They redeemed themselves with ‘Next Of Kin,’ though. It is one of the most entertaining binge-watch movie marathons you can ask for. There are a total of seven movies in this franchise, so that is your weekend sorted.
5. Planet Of The Apes – Old and New
When Leonard from Big Bang Theory said it would be great 18 hours to avoid Sheldon and watch Planet Of The Apes with director commentary, he was not wrong. But we will skip the director’s commentary now.
You can watch the classic one as well as the reboot version. There are five movies in the classic, and three in the rebooted version have three movies, with the fourth on the way. In my opinion, you should watch both versions simultaneously.
Let’s focus on a rather short binge now. Back To The Future is one of the best trilogies of all time. I can’t believe how perfect the first part of this franchise really is. Everything makes perfect sense and is called back upon amazingly.
It is a funny trilogy that will make you laugh all the time. It is one of the few filmmaking miracles where everything came together in the end despite many hiccups. A must-watch trilogy that you will undoubtedly love.
7. Marvel Cinematic Universe
We can’t make this list without the most popular franchise in the cinema right now. No other franchise is popular as Marvel Cinematic Universe. And it is a very big world that will keep you hooked for a good month.
There are 31 movies and 12 shows in the MCU. And every show and movie has something to look forward to. The world-building here is amazing, and the characters will resonate with you. A truly marvelous franchise that the Russo brothers have built.
8. Lord Of The Rings
There are two ways to watch the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. Either watch the normal versions or watch the extended cuts. In my opinion, you should watch the extended cut without any doubt.
Lord of The Rings binge-watch will include a mini-series of eight episodes, “The Rings of Power.” And it is bloody brilliant as well. And a LOTR binge-watch is never a bad idea, no matter what.
9. DCEU Trilogy
The original trilogy of DCEU is quite underrated and over-hated. It involves three movies that showcase the birth, death, and revival of Superman to complete a story arc that is poetic and beautiful to watch.
The movie involves Man Of Steel, Batman V. Superman, and Justice League: Snyder Cut. You have to make sure to watch the Snyder Cut because you will be so disappointed if you watch the 2016 version.
10. Rocky and Creed
There are 6 movies in the Rocky series and 3 in the Creed series, and apart from Rocky 5, every movie is worth watching. The most motivational binge-watch you could ever ask for. A truly remarkable series for what it has done for the cinema industry.
So, get your boxing gloves on, and get ready to run across the town because the training montages of Rocky and Creed will pump up your adrenaline for sure. A must-watch franchise for everyone who loves this sport.
What are you still holding out for? Grab some munchies, settle in on the couch, and explore the world of binge-worthy movie marathons. Everyone can find something they enjoy, whether they prefer romantic comedies or science fiction. A happy viewing!
