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.
week of Friday, August 1
Director: James Gunn
Why? I keep hearing that this is the best Marvel movie to-day. But even if I hadn't heard that, this one is a no-brainer.
week of Friday, August 8
Director: Jonathan Liebesman
Why? Say what you will, but I'm planning to check this out, and it's not just for Megan Fox. I've been a fan of TMNT since the 90s cartoon.
Director: Steven Quale
Why? Think Twister but with a bigger budget.

week of Friday, August 15
Director: Luke Greenfield
Why? This is almost half of the cast from New Girl, so as a fan of that show I'm counting on this to be even more funny.
Director: Lenny Abrahamson
Why? It's just so bizarre that I have to check it out.
Director: Jeff Baena
Why? Any movie with Aubrey Plaza in the leading role gets my vote.
week of Friday, August 22
Why? The first one was great, and pretty much everyone has returned for the sequel. This cast is to kill for.
|Rosario Dawson in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For|
week of Friday, August 29
Director: John Erick Dowdle
Why? While I'm not a huge fan of claustrophobic horror, I am a fan of horror. This looks like a relatively new concept and an untapped resource.
