August 2015 Movie Guide

spoof posters for Shaun The Sheep Movie

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 August 7

Director: Josh Trank
Why? I'm a fan of the previous incarnation, but I'm willing to give this reboot a shot.

posters for Shaun The Sheep Movie
Why? I'm a sucker for stop-motion animation.

Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall in The Gift (2015)
Director: Joel Edgerton
Why? Looks like a good suspenseful movie.  I want to find out about the characters' past.

poster for Cop Car, starring Kevin Bacon
Director: Jon Watts
Why? Looks like it has potential, and it definitely has Kevin Bacon.

#DBZRF
Why? I'm not ashamed to admit that I love DBZ!! Two animated features in theaters two years in a row is almost too good to be true.

Dark Places, starring Charlize Theron, Nicholas Holt, and Chloe Grace Moretz
Why? What is this under-the-radar thriller that I just heard about while working on this post? Looks like a good story with a solid cast to back it up.


week of August 14

Director: Guy Ritchie
Why? Looks like a great action comedy, and it's tough to go wrong when Guy Ritchie is directing.


week of August 21

Director: Ciarán Foy
Why? I'm hoping it will be scary like the first one.

Director: Nima Nourizadeh
Why? It's the story of a stoner with latent abilities. Funny, right?

Director: Aleksander Bach
Why? Looks action packed.

Julia Garner & Lily Tomlin in Grandma
Director: Paul Weitz
Why? Lily Tomlin.

Anna Kendrick in Digging For Fire
Director: Joe Swanberg
Why? Looks funny, especially with that cast. Check out the whole lineup, seriously.


week of August 28

Emily Ratajkowski and Zac Efron from We Are Your Friends
Director: Max Joseph
Why? Looks like it could be a fun party movie.

Margot Robbie in "Z is for Zachariah" -click for more stills from the movie
Director: Craig Zobel

Why? So you know that funny show on FOX starring Will Forte called The Last Man On Earth?  Well, think of that serious instead of funny and instead of the last man, Margot Robbie is the last woman on Earth. Can you already feel the tension?
