These are my picks (complete with the reason for my choice) for the movies coming to theaters in August, but feel free to check out all of August's releases by visiting the Internet Movie Database's Coming Soon page.
Friday, August 2nd
Director: Baltasar Kormákur
o Why? Denzel and Wahlberg.
Director: Raja Gosnell
o Why? Because tra la la-la-la-la, la la-la-laa.
Friday, August 9th
Director: Neill Blomkamp
o Why? This is the same director that delivered the fantastic District 9.
Director: Thor Freudenthal
o Why? The first one was pretty good. This one has Nathan Fillion, so it's already better.
Friday, August 16th
Director: Jeff Wadlow
o Why? Because the first one was so awesome, I'm counting on this one to be just as awesome if not moreso.

Friday, August 23rd
Director: Edgar Wright
o Why? Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are an unbeatable team, and Edgar Wright has proven on more than one occasion that he knows how to direct them.
Director: Adam Wingard
o Why? I'm kinda hoping that this horror movie is about tracking down people who mix-up "your" and "you're" to torture them.
Friday, August 30th
This will be the weekend to avoid the theater since it will be swamped by tweens going to see the One Direction movie. Ethan Hawke has a new movie this weekend, but Selena Gomez is in it. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
