Top Films for July

july1

A new month is here and once again, here are the films I’m most excited about seeing – sadly, nothing on the list is an original idea and it’s mainly sequels or reboots/adaptations. There are a number of obvious choices I have missed off the list for legit reasons, such as Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (this was popular before my time), The Legend of Tarzan (I’ve seen it and I don’t recommend), Central Intelligence (it’s alright) and The Neon Demon (I don’t think I’ll like it).

So here is what remains –

Now You See Me 2

I loved the first Now You See Me so I’m definitely down for watching some more of Dave Franco, Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson as the magicians/criminals The Four Horseman. Lizzy Caplan joins the team and Daniel Radcliffe gets involved. I love all these actors individually so having them in the same film is the dream. Not quite as good as the first, and a bit more ridiculous, but still very entertaining. Review coming soon. Released: 4th July

Ghostbusters

This all-female reboot of the Ghostbusters has received so much hate and I get it. The original Bill Murray and co. version is a classic but I like the look of this and I have every faith that Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones will make it hilarious. I’m definitely going to check it out. Released: 11th July

The BFG

I love this story and I remember watching an animated version when I was growing up so I’m keen to see it as an adult in a whole new light. It’s in hands of Steven Spielberg, and Mark Rylance is playing the BFG via motion capture, so I’m confident it will be great. Released: 22nd July

Star Trek Beyond 

I’m not a massive Star Trek fan BUT I’ve seen the previous two so it makes sense to watch it. I also want to see Anton Yelchin doing his thing as Chekov and I think it will be very emotional knowing he’s no longer with us. The crew of the USS Enterprise have to abandon ship after being attacked by aliens and are left stranded on an unknown planet with no means of rescue. Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto and Simon Pegg are all back plus Idris Elba joins the cast. Released: 22nd July

Finding Dory 

I really want this to be good. I love Finding Nemo so much and I don’t understand quite how it’s taken 13 years for a follow-up but I’m hoping this gap means they have made it decent. The plot sounds very similar to Nemo – but this time it stars Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), who is trying to find her way back to her parents but she is captured and put into an aquarium along the way, so she must be rescued. Released: 29th July

Jason Bourne

I’m very intrigued to see where this franchise is going. Matt Damon hasn’t played Jason Bourne since 2007 in The Bourne Ultimatum. I really need to rewatch the films because I can’t remember what happened before. But, I liked the previous movies a lot and this seems like an action-packed thrill ride, judging by the trailer. Julia Stiles returns while Alicia Vikander is added to the cast. Released: 29th July
