For Sci-Fi and/or Comedy affectionados, July is your month to hit the theatre.
1. Sci- Fi
On July 14th, the newest addition to the classic Planet Of The Apes films, War For The Planet of The Apes, premieres.
For those who are more into ‘futuristic’ kinds of sci-fi films, look no further than the weekend after with Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets on July 21st which stars Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) as special operatives.
As for comedy lovers, witness the hilarious adventure of a lifetime with best friends Ryan, Sasha, Lisa and Dina when they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival in Girl’s Trip. On the other hand, those who like to laugh but also learn will not want to miss the July 28th premiere of Brigsy Bear.
If Sci-Fi and Comedies neither your cup of tea, prepare to have your jaw drop (in more ways than one) this August with multiple Action and Horror Releases.
For starters, The Dark Tower (August 4th), and The Hitmanès Bodyguard (August 18th), will be happening a week within each other. The Dark Tower stars Idris Elba and Matthew Mcconaughey. As The Gunslinger, Mcconaughey must prevent the Man in Black from toppling the Dark Tower, the key that holds the universe together.
In The Hitmans Bodyguard, The world’s top protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hitmen (Samuel L. Jackson).
For Horror fans, those looking to brace themselves for new scares can do so by revisiting a familiar face in The Annabelle Series sequel, Annabelle; Creation (August 11th).
If you're looking for some nostalgia that stretches back more than a few years, you are in luck as well, considering August 25th will be the release of Polaroid. Polaroid is the story of High school loner Bird Fitcher, who has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the mysterious Polaroid vintage camera she stumbles upon….it doesn’t take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic end.
