Upcoming Movie Releases — July
We're in the midst of summer. Here's a look at what's coming in July.
Friday, July 1:
The Legend of Tarzan — Another re-make of "Tarzan," but this one with Christoph Waltz, Alexander Skarsgaard and Margo Robbie. I was on the fence, but I think this could be a good summer action movie.
The BFG — Steven Spielberg is back making family films, this one based on the book by Roald Dahl. Looks like a fun family film.
The Purge: Election Year — "The Purge" franchise has been great as low-budget horror, but also as a social commentary. Curious to see where this one goes.
Friday, July 8:
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates — This looks hilarious. For adult audiences only, but hilarious. This could be the first gross out comedy of the summer.
The Secret Life of Pets — Not sure what to make of this animated feature. I'm leaning toward it being a bust.
Wednesday, July 13:
The Infiltrator — This story of an undercover DEA agent starring Bryan Cranston looks like a potential sleeper hit of summer.
Friday, July 15:
Ghostbusters — This is a re-make of the classic comedy, this time with an all-female cast. I love Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, and I like Paul Feig as a director, but I'm skeptical of this film. I hope I'm wrong.
Friday, July 22:
Star Trek: Beyond — The third film in the re-booted "Star Trek" franchise looks like it could be fascinating. J.J. Abrams is out as director, replaced by Justin Lin of the "Fast and Furious" franchise. I am curious to see where this goes.
Lights Out — A low budget horror film. 'Tis the season for these options.
Ice Age: Collision Course — Another film in the "Ice Age" series. Another option for families in the heat of summer.
Absolutely Fabulous The Movie — A big screen adaptation of the popular show.
Wednesday, July 27:
Nerve — This horror movie concept features Dave Franco, Emma Roberts and a seemingly too real concept about people participating in online challenges.
Friday, July 29:
Bad Moms — This comedy is about moms going wild, featuring Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn.
Jason Bourne — The fifth film in the franchise, this one featuring Matt Damon back in the lead role. Can't wait to see how it develops.
Cafe Society — This is the latest comedy from Woody Allen, this one featuring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. Expect a typical Woody Allen type story.
