July Movie Preview/ by /

5 Jul

July! Summer is in full swing! And boy, is the schedule packed this month! A whopping six wide releases. Okay then.

  1. SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME – July 2, IMAX, RealD3D. See, the first one was HOMECOMING, and now it’s not, even though it deals with people returning from what they’re calling “The Blip” and also it’s in Europe and Spidey is on vacation but Nick Fury wants his help fighting interdimensional elementals with the help of you know what, you already know if you’re going. Suffice to say this is kind of an epilogue to ENDGAME and doesn’t really set up the next batch of Marvel films, but it’s a fun ride.
  2. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD – July 26. Ah, Quentin. Always a pleasure. This already screened at Cannes to mostly rave reviews, and QT’s making it sound like this might be his last film, so enjoy the glory that shows him playing in his one of his favorite places, 1960s Hollywood.
  3. MIDSOMMAR – July 3. HEREDITARY was legit terrifying, and though it’s not as strong this one promises some super creepy WICKER MAN vibes. See it with someone you love to make uncomfortable.
  4. DISNEY’S THE LION KING, NOT THE ANIMATED ONE BUT IT’S ACTUALLY ANIMATED, JUST WITH COMPUTERS INSTEAD BUT IT LOOKS REAL SO LET’S CALL IT A LIVE ACTION REMAKE – July 19, IMAX3D, RealD3D. I still haven’t seen any of the remakes, just last year’s MARY POPPINS sequels. This will make more than a billion dollars guaranteed, but they won’t get my $20. I’m sure it’ll be fine.
  5. STUBER – July 12. Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Batista are an odd couple, wunza cop and wunza Uber driver. Reviews are mixed, but it’s summer. Things get graded on a curve.
  6. CRAWL – July 12. Gators threaten a family during a massive flood. Director Alexandre Aja has been here before with the goofy PIRANHA 3D and THE HILLS HAVE EYES, so it should deliver some good scares.

Aaaaand that’s it. It’s almost like everyone’s running scared from Disney. Ah well. August will make up for it in quantity, but quality? We’ll see.
