Big blockbusters, shiver-inducing horror, and much anticipated box office clashes.This month’s release calendar is chock full of reasons to head back to the theatre. In July movie lovers can look forward to the eagerly awaited bright pink Barbie and hop over to the very next screen to watch the dark and broody Oppenheimer. As if those two releases weren’t proof enough of the month’s spectacular nature, the Maverick Tom Cruise himself will also get a chance to save the movie business again with his latest Mission: Impossible film. Here are the upcoming Hollywood movies of the month of July:
The original cast of the horror series is back for the terrifying narrative of the Lambert family’s final chapter in Insidious: The Red Door. Josh (Patrick Wilson) and a college-aged Dalton (Ty Simpkins) must venture further into The Beyond than ever before in order to exorcise their demons. They must confront their family’s dark past as well as a number of new and more terrifying terrors that await them outside the red door. Ty Simpkins, Rose Byrne, Andrew Astor, and Patrick Wilson, who is also making his directorial debut, are all members of the original Insidious cast. Hiam Abbass and Sinclair Daniel are featured as well.
To find a frightening new weapon that threatens all of humanity before it gets into the wrong hands, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team set out on their most perilous mission yet in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. A deadly race across the world starts as terrible forces from Ethan’s past close in and sinister forces from the future and the fate of the world are at stake. Ethan is forced to think that nothing can matter more than his purpose – not even the lives of those he cares about most. This is because he is facing a mysterious, all-powerful enemy.
In the action-adventure comedy The Out-Laws, Owen, a straightforward man and bank employee, meets his fiancee’s parents for the first time and becomes caught in an unexpected mystery and a chaotic crime tale. A stuffy bank manager named Owen Browning (Adam Devine) is getting married to Parker, the love of his life (Nina Dobrev). He thinks his future in-laws (Pierce Brosnan and Ellen Barkin), who have just arrived in town, are the notorious outlaws when his bank is robbed by the infamous Ghost Bandits during the week before his wedding. The outstanding ensemble cast of The Out-Laws also features Michael Rooker, Poorna Jagannathan, Julie Hagerty, Richard Kind, Lil Rel Howery, Blake Anderson, Lauren Lapkus, and Laci Mosley in addition to the principal four characters.
Barbie might have had countless animated films thus far, but never a live-action rendition. Although the notion of making the beloved Mattel toy a live-action film had been explored for more than ten years, it took Greta Gerwig to endorse the idea and make it come to life. One of the most anticipated films of the summer may be Barbie, which stars none other than Margot Robbie as the iconic doll and Ryan Gosling as Ken. The official Barbie website has provided a vague description of the movie’s plot, which states,”To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you’re Ken.”
The unexpected is the one thing you can always count on in a new Christopher Nolan film. The five-time Oscar-nominated director is stepping into a new genre: the biography. After taking on everything from superheroes to espionage, time travel, dreams within dreams, and the farthest reaches of space, the filmmaker is doing this. The film relates the tale of J. Robert Oppenheimer, known as “the father of the atomic bomb,” whose work at the Los Alamos Laboratory of the Manhattan Project resulted in the development of the first nuclear weapons during World War II. Oppenheimer is based on Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the latter of whom spent more than two decades researching.
They Cloned Tyrone takes a group of people on an unexpected investigation into a government plot that is having an impact on how people in their town go about living their daily lives. The group is made up of a pimp named Slick Charles (Jamie Foxx), a drug dealer named Fontaine (John Boyega), and his primary sex slave Yo-Yo (Teyonah Parris). The movie’s imaginative premise incorporates science fiction and humorous satire to create a plot that crosses several genres. In a nutshell, it is described as,”A series of eerie events thrusts an unlikely trio onto the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy in this pulpy mystery caper.”
Haunted Mansion (July 28)
The Walt Disney Company has a history of turning its innovative attractions into full-length motion pictures. The Pirates of the Caribbean film series, which consisted of a total of five films and gave rise to a contemporary pop culture hero in the form of Captain Jack Sparrow, is unquestionably the most well-known and successful example. The Haunted Mansion, however, is the one attraction in the Walt Disney parks that should be a no-brainer to modify. The first scene of Haunted Mansion introduces Gabbie, a single mother who recently bought a spooky-looking property in New Orleans. She moves into the mansion with her 9-year-old son, who is less enthusiastic about being in the incredibly creepy house than she is about what the future holds. It turns out that the child was correct; the area is rife with ghosts, and these aren’t your typical Casper-like ghosts. In order to expel the evil spirits residing in the mansion, Gabbie enlists a team of unlikely heroes—a priest, a psychic, a historian, and a paranormal expert—despite the fact that they are far over their heads.
