We are in the midst of another summer movie season and there have been some big ones. Infinity War and Jurassic Park have made their expected impacts while Solo undelivered but still left a mark. There were also some pleasant surprises in Upgrade and Hereditary. What can July offer?
The First Purge (Nationwide): The Purge movies have always been a great idea that fall into violence and tropes. A prequel is an interesting idea, but can they make it work?
Ant-Man and the Wasp (Nationwide): The follow up to Infinity War already looked like it was going to be fun but it became a lot more interesting after The Snap.
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (Nationwide): The latest installment of the animated franchise takes place shortly after the last film. The cast go on a summer cruise that is more dangerous than they realize.
Skyscraper (Nationwide): Dwayne Johnson has proven himself to be one of Hollywood’s leading action stars. He has also proven he can take seemingly dumb premises and turn them into fun movies. Johnson will try to work his magic again in a movie about about an amputee who has to deal with terrorists in the world’s safest skyscraper.
The Equalizer 2 (Nationwide): Denzel Washington returns as Robert McCall, a former CIA black ops operative out to avenge the murder of an old friend.
Unfriended: Dark Web (Nationwide): This stand alone sequel is a found footage horror movie about friends who find a laptop with files they never should have seen. The plot to jump scares ratio should be interesting.
Mama Mia: Here We Go Again! (Nationwide): The sequel to one of the biggest hits of 2008 looks to have a bigger cast, bigger stars, and the same songs.
Mission: Impossible-Fallout (Nationwide): The sixth installment of the spy franchise starring Tom Cruise has nothing to do with popular video game series. Fallout has Ethan Hunt trying to save the world as he battles new enemies and former friends.
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (Nationwide): A candidate for best tag line in a trailer this year, To the Movies follows the Titans as they try to find a director for their movie.
