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 3rd
- Total Recall
Friday, August 10th
- The Bourne Legacy
- Director: Tony Gilroy
Stars: Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Donna Murphy
- Why? Don't mistake this for a reboot. Jeremy Renner is not replacing Matt Damon. He's a new character within the same universe. With supporting cast like Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton, this could be the best Bourne movie yet.
Wednesday, August 15th
- The Odd Life of Timothy Green
Friday, August 17th
- The Expendables 2 Director: Simon West
Stars: Sylvester Stallone, Liam Hemsworth, Randy Couture, Jean-Claude Van Damme
Director: Craig Zobel
Stars: Ann Dowd, Dreama Walker, Pat Healy, Bill Camp
- Why? If you've watched any of ABC's Don't Trust the B**** in Apartment 23, then you probably already have a crush on Dream Walker's character June. This movie provides a different role for her.
Friday, August 24th
- The Apparition
Friday, August 31st
