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 5
Director: David Ayer
Why? This is DC Comics' anti-hero team… sort of. The government is sending super criminals on missions, and if things get messed up, they can wash their hands of the team. Harley Quinn, a fan favorite, has been part of the Squad for a while, but as a bonus, we also get The Joker and Batman in the movie.
week of August 12
Director: David Lowery
Why? Hoping this will be good. Somehow I've never seen the original.
Why? It's an animated movie for adults. Count me in!
week of August 19
Director: Todd Phillips
Why? Looks like it will be outrageously funny.
week of August 26
Director: Dennis Gansel
Why? I'll watch just about anything starring Statham.
Director: Fede Alvarez
Why? We're getting the director and the main star from the Evil Dead remake. This should be good!
