These are my picks (complete with the reason for my choice) for the movies coming to theaters in July, but feel free to check out all of July's releases by visiting the Internet Movie Database's Coming Soon page.
week of July 1
Director: James DeMonaco
Why? With the second movie in this series, The Purge evolved from an interesting horror concept to an intelligent movie with provoking social commentary. I'm looking forward to this follow-up.
Director: David Yates
Why? It's been a few years since we revisited the Tarzan story, and this looks like it will be a nice grown-up version.
Director: Jeffrey G. Hunt
Why? It's a horror movie named "Satanic." What more do you need?
week of July 8
Why? They won me over when the French Poodle started rocking out to System Of A Down.
Director: Jake Szymanski
Why? Looks pretty funny.
week of July 15
Director: Paul Feig
Why? Just because I love the original doesn't mean I'm automatically going to hate this. I'm willing to give it a shot.
week of July 22
Director: Justin Lin
Why? This franchise has been fun so far.
Director: David F. Sandberg
Why? You were right to be afraid of the dark.
week of July 29
Director: Paul Greengrass
Why? Because he's a total badass.
