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 4
Director: Nikolaj Arcel
Why? This Stephen King classic (that I haven't read) is finally getting a movie adaption, and it looks pretty great. Elba and McConaughey seem like great choices.
week of August 11
Director: David F. Sandberg
Why? I've enjoyed all the Conjuring and Annabelle movies so far. Why stop now?
Director: Matt Spicer
Why? Just learned about this one while composing this update; however, I saw Aubrey Plaza's name and was immediately interested. Looks like it could be fun.
week of August 18
Director: Patrick Hughes
Why? Just watch a trailer for this one, and you know it's going to be a riot.
week of August 25
Director: Lars Klevberg
Why? Not familiar with any of the movies coming out this week, but here's one of two that caught my eye. A haunted Polaroid? Nice. Based on the trailer I watched, it feels like The Ring, except instead of watching a video, you die after getting your picture taken.
Director: Justin Chadwick
Why? Here's the second one to catch my eye for this particular week. The plot didn't interest me too much till I saw the cast. Those are some really recognizable names.
